Nashville Sounds suffer 3-2 loss to Sacramento River Cats


Nashville SoundsSacramento, CA – The Sacramento River Cats defeat Nashville Sounds 3-2 in a walk off at Raley Field Saturday Sunday afternoon. The Sounds had been 4-0 on their seven-game California trip and had not trailed at any point before the River Cats scored in the ninth inning to end the game.

The Sounds grabbed a 2-0 lead in the fourth, as Ronald Guzman blasted a two-run homer to right field to break a scoreless tie. The Sounds now have homered in 13 consecutive games and hit 25 in that span.

Starter Tim Dillard, in his first outing since a nine-inning complete game, gave the Sounds another good outing. He yielded one run – a Joe McCarthy homer in the fifth inning – on five hits over 5 1/3 frames in the no-decision.
