Nashville Sounds take down Indianapolis Indians, 13-4

Sounds Even Series With Two Big Innings

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds scored five runs in the fifth and seventh innings on their way to a 13-4 win over the Indianapolis Indians in front of 8,668 fans at First Horizon Park on Friday night.

Entering the 75th game of the season, the Sounds had scored five runs in an inning five times. Their sixth five-run inning of the season quickly erased a 3-0 Indians lead in the fifth inning. Pedro Severino started the big frame with a double and came around to score on Patrick Dorrian’s first triple of the season.

Dorrian was the first of five consecutive batters to reach via hit. Garrett Whitley trimmed the deficit to 3-2 with an RBI double, Weston Wilson tied the game with another RBI double, Brice Turang gave the Sounds the lead with a run-scoring single and Abraham Almonte capped the five-run frame with an RBI single to center field.
 
Armed with a 5-3 lead, Nashville starter Ethan Small returned to the mound and tossed a 1-2-3 inning in the sixth. The southpaw logged his second straight quality start (6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 1 K) and improved to 5-3 on the season.
 
Dorrian started another rally in the seventh inning when he led off the inning with a double down the right field line. It turned out to be the only hit in the inning and Nashville still plated five runs. They took advantage of five walks and a sacrifice fly to take a 10-3 lead.
 
For good measure, Abraham Almonte launched a mammoth three-run homer on top of The Band Box in the eighth inning to give the Sounds a 13-3 lead. It was Almonte’s eighth home run of the season.
 
Game five of the six-game series is scheduled for Saturday night at First Horizon Park. Right-hander Marcus Walden (0-0, 3.00) starts for Nashville against right-hander Miguel Yajure (1-1, 4.26) for Indianapolis. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
