Nashville Sounds drop two games to Norfolk Tides

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Norfolk Tides scored a pair of tight victories over the Nashville Sounds in front of 8,144 fans at First Horizon Park Thursday night. The pair of losses dropped Nashville’s record to 34-22 and extended their losing streak to five games.

The Tides outlasted the Sounds, 5-4, in game one after Nashville put together several comeback attempts. Cole Uvila notched his sixth save of the season when he got Mark Mathias to pop out with a pair of runners in scoring position.

Norfolk jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the top of the first when Jordan Westburg hit a two-run home run off Josh Lindblom and Jacob Nottingham drilled a solo shot two batters later.

Jonathan Davis fired up the comeback attempt early when he launched a leadoff homer off Denyi Reyes in Nashville’s half of the first inning. Davis finished 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, and two RBI.
 
David Dahl trimmed the deficit to 3-2 in the bottom of the second when he hit his fourth home run of the season – a solo blast into The Band Box.
 
Nashville would later cut Norfolk’s lead to 4-3 in the fourth and 5-4 in the seventh, but the rally fell short.
 
In game two, Tyler White and Garrett Whitley drove in runs in the first two innings to give the Sounds a 2-1 lead, but it was erased when the Tides scored three runs in the second. Norfolk never trailed after taking the lead and came away with a 5-3 win.
 
Brian Navarreto brought the Sounds within a pair of runs with a run-scoring single in the bottom of the fourth but it concluded the scoring.
 
Game four of the series is scheduled for Friday at First Horizon Park. Right-hander Caleb Boushley (6-2, 3.53) starts for Nashville against left-hander DL Hall (1-1, 4.57) for Norfolk. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm.
