Nashville, TN – The Louisville Bats scored seven runs in the seventh inning on their way to a 7-3 win over the Nashville Sounds in front of a sellout crowd of 10,678 fans at First Horizon Park Saturday night.
Six shutout innings from Nashville starter Thomas Jankins went for naught in the home loss. Jankins turned in his first quality start of the season and limited the Bats to just four hits.
The trouble came in the seventh after Jankins departed. Louisville sent 12 batters to the plate in the long frame. With one out in the inning, pinch-hitter Chris Okey dumped a single into center field scoring two runs to even the game at 2-2. After a single by TJ Friedl, Jose Barrero launched a three-run homer off Aaron Ashby to give Louisville the lead for good.
