Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds scored a couple of runs late but came up short on Wednesday night, dropping a 7-2 game to the Gwinnett Stripers on Wednesday night.
After a scoreless first, Gwinnett put a couple of runs on the board in the second frame, then extended their advantage to 4-0.
The Stripers would tally one more run onto Nashville starter Tyler Herb’s line before his exit after five innings.
The Sounds bullpen provided a bright spot in the loss. Jandel Gustave did not allow a run in his third rehab appearance with Nashville, allowing a hit on 10 pitches (7 strikes). Andy Otero followed that up with a near-perfect seventh inning (0 H, 1 BB, 0 K) and Zack Brown tossed a scoreless eighth frame.
Reyes (2-for-4, 2 2B) and Brice Turang (2-for-4) led the Sounds offensively with two hits. Corey Ray (2-for-4) also had a couple of doubles in the loss.
Game three will be on Thursday night at 7:05pm from First Horizon Park. Right-hander Caleb Boushley (8-2, 3.06) will start for the Sounds. Tomorrow’s starter for Gwinnett is still to be announced.
