Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds hit six home runs in two wins over the Louisville Bats in front of a pair of sellout crowds at First Horizon Park on Sunday afternoon. The 17-7 and 5-4 wins for Nashville improved their record to 29-11 and the team has won all seven series they have played in 2022.
Saturday night’s game that was resumed on Sunday was all Sounds from start to finish. Nashville scored a season-high 17 runs and collected a season-high 18 hits in the 17-7 win. Nashville scored six runs in the second, four runs in the sixth and four runs in the seventh in the offensive outburst.
After the rain on Saturday night caused the game to be suspended in the third inning, Nashville’s bats picked up right where they left off with a pair of runs in the fourth. Reyes had an RBI double, and Weston Wilson made it 9-0 with a run-scoring single.
Louisville closed the gap to 9-4 in the sixth, but the offense kept rolling. Reyes’ fourth hit of the game was a solo homer in the bottom of the sixth, and a few batters later Tyler White knocked in a pair of runs with a single to make it 12-4.
Almonte added his second home run of the game, a towering two-run blast into The Band Box in the seventh inning. Jon Singleton followed with a blast to center field to give Nashville its first back-to-back home runs of the season.
The huge day for Reyes continued in game two when he drilled a go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning. Hobie Harris notched his fourth save of the year and Caleb Boushley earned the win.
The Sounds are off Monday before beginning a 12-game, 13-day road trip in Toledo, Ohio on Tuesday.
