Nashville Sounds get off to fast start in 6-2 victory over Columbus Clippers

Nashville SoundsColumbus, OH – The Nashville Sounds’ dominance over the Columbus Clippers did not slow down on Saturday night, as they hit four home runs in a 6-2 victory at Huntington Park and won their season-high eighth consecutive game overall.

The Sounds have hit 11 home runs in the series and have not trailed at any point, improving to 11-0 all-time at Huntington Park dating back to last season.

After the Clippers got a run back in the bottom of the second, the Sounds continued their onslaught in the middle innings. Abraham Almonte singled home Weston Wilson in the fourth, Tyler White smashed a homer to left in the fifth, and Dahl drove in Brian Navarreto in the sixth for a 6-1 score.
 
Tyler Herb (1-4) continued the Sounds’ excellent run of starting pitching in the series, giving up one run on four hits over six innings in the quality start and win. He walked one and struck out six. Then Connor Sadzeck and Peter Strzelecki combined for two scoreless innings, and Luis Contreras gave up a run in the ninth before ending the game.
