Louisville, KY – The Nashville Sounds managed only four hits in a 3-0 loss to the Louisville Bats on Sunday night at Louisville Slugger Field. It’s just the third time in 2021 the Sounds lost five of the six games in a series.
Matt Lipka delivered two hits, Brice Turang had one and David Dahl had the fourth as the Sounds suffered their 10th shutout loss of the season.
Alec Bettinger started for Nashville and turned in his fifth quality start of the season, but the lack of offense hurt the right-hander. Bettinger limited the Bats to two runs on five hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out three in a tough-luck loss.
Louisville added runs in the sixth and seventh innings on Alfredo Rodriguez’s RBI single and Jan Hernandez’s RBI double.
Nashville managed only two at-bats with runners in scoring position – both in the ninth inning after Lipka singled with one out and reached third on an error.
The Sounds enjoy a day off Monday before hosting a six-game series against the Memphis Redbirds at First Horizon Park beginning Tuesday, September 7th. The first pitch of game one is scheduled for 7:05pm.
