Nashville Sounds fall to St. Paul Saints, 4-1

Nashville SoundsSaint Paul, MN – The Nashville Sounds’ first trip to the Land of 10,000 Lakes did not go to plan, taking a 4-1 defeat to the St. Paul Saints on Tuesday night at CHS Field.

With a scoreless game after two innings, Brice Turang broke the deadlock with his first knock of the night. His double to the left-center gap brought home Weston Wilson to put Nashville up a run in the top of the third. Unfortunately for Nashville, the Saints would tie the contest in the bottom half. St. Paul added a run in the fourth inning to make it 2-1. A couple more runs in the eighth for the home side made it 4-1.

David Dahl totaled three hits for the Sounds to lead the team. Tonight’s game was his third three-hit contest of the season. Brice Turang also boasted a multi-hit evening, going 2-for-4. The No. 5 prospect in the Milwaukee Brewers system (according to MLB.com) is how batting .313 on the season.
A couple of bullpen arms kept the Sounds in the game through seven innings. Connor Sadzeck struck out a couple of Saints, and Hobie Harris worked around a walk to pitch another scoreless inning for the right-hander.
Jason Alexander’s streak of three wins to start the season came to an end. He allowed seven hits and two runs (both earned) over five innings in the start. Alexander allowed three walks, while striking out a pair.
The Sounds will not have time to dwell on tonight’s result. They are back in action tomorrow for a matinee game for game two against the Saints. First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 p.m. from CHS Field.
