Columbus, OH – The Nashville Sounds launched a season-high six home runs on Friday night, including two from Weston Wilson and back-to-back jacks from Tyrone Taylor and Jake Hager, to beat the Columbus Clippers 13-9 on a windy night at Huntington Park. The Sounds have won 10 consecutive games and 13 of their last 15.
Zach Green got it started right away with a two-run homer in the first inning off Kirk McCarty. Green has homered three times in the series and twice in the first inning. Then Wilson hit the first of his two in the second inning before Hernan Perez smashed a two-run double to make it 5-0.
Taylor and Hager hit their back-to-back shots in the third, and the Sounds (16-5) led 7-0. Taylor has homered in each of his first two games with the Sounds.
The Clippers (8-13) got all nine of their runs in a wild bottom of the third inning, sending 13 batters to the plate against Jesus Castillo, Quintin Torres-Costa and Luke Barker.
Columbus only had three hits in the frame but took advantage of six walks and a pair of Sounds errors for a 9-7 game after three. But the Sounds never allowed another run, and the Clippers only had a baserunner in one other inning the entire game.
After Dustin Peterson scored on a double play in the fifth to pull the Sounds within one, Tim Lopes belted a three-run homer to center in the sixth to make it 11-9.
Then Wilson poked an opposite-field two-run shot in the ninth for the 13-9 final. Barker, Bobby Wahl, Jake Cousins, Miguel Sanchez and Hoby Milner combined for 6 2/3 scoreless relief innings, with Wahl notching the win and Milner posting his fourth save.
Game five of the six-game series is Saturday night at 6:05pm CT. Right-hander Aaron Ashby (1-0, 4.20) is slated to start for the Sounds opposite right-hander Matt Koch (1-0, 2.16) for Columbus.
