Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds put together a late rally, but it ultimately fell short in a 6-2 loss to the Columbus Clippers on Wednesday night at First Horizon Park.
Trailing 3-0 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, the Sounds loaded the bases with one out in the frame but were only able to put one run across on a passed ball by Columbus catcher Wilson Ramos.
In the bottom of the eighth, Weston Wilson crushed his 15th home run of the season, a solo blast to left-center to trim the deficit to 3-2. Daniel Robertson followed with a walk, but he was left stranded.
Columbus put the game out of reach with three runs in the top of the ninth inning.
Nashville’s inability to get the big hit came back to haunt them in the loss to Columbus. They went 1-for-14 with runners in scoring position and left a season-high 14 runners on base.
Josh Lindblom started for the Sounds and turned in his third consecutive quality start. The right-hander went six innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits. He walked one and struck out seven.
Columbus built their 3-0 lead with single tallies in the first, third, and fourth innings against Lindblom.
