Toledo, OH – The Nashville Sounds dropped their second game of the series to the Toledo Mud Hens, falling 9-4 on Thursday night at Fifth Third Field. The Mud Hens kept Nashville from mounting a comeback after scoring all nine of their runs through the first three innings.
Jonathan Davis gave Nashville an early lead with a leadoff homer to left on the second pitch of the game. The Sounds added another run in the first with David Dahl’s RBI single that scored Abraham Almonte. However, the 2-0 run was short-lived, as Ryan Lavarnway’s two-run blast in the bottom of the first put Toledo on top 3-2. The Mud Hens led 9-2 after three innings, scoring one run in the second and five runs in the third.
Tyler White came around to score a couple of late runs for the Sounds. He scored on a Toledo error in the sixth inning, then was hit home on Jonathan Davis’ double in the eighth.
