Nashville, TN – Nashville Sounds first baseman Tyler White hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning to complete a dramatic come-from-behind 10-8 win over the Memphis Redbirds in front of 6,739 fans at First Horizon Park Sunday afternoon.
White’s three-run blast was his second home run of the day and one of four clubbed by the Sounds. Nashville trailed 5-0 in the third inning and 8-1 in the sixth. The seven-run deficit is the largest comeback by the Sounds this season.
Nashville’s first run of the game came in the third when White (2-for-4, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI, BB) drilled a solo homer, his 12th of the season, out to left field. It trimmed the Memphis lead to 5-1.
Nashville put up a four-spot in the bottom of the sixth with two-run home runs by Weston Wilson and Brian Navarreto. Navarreto tied a season-high with three knocks in the game.
Rehabbing Brewers outfielder Tyrone Taylor (3-for-4, R, SB) started a rally in the seventh with his third hit of the game. He came around to score on a Mark Mathias run-scoring double to make it 8-6, and Brice Turang’s RBI groundout made it a one-run game at 8-7.
With one out in the bottom of the eighth, Navarreto singled and Matt Lipka drew a walk. After a groundout, White drilled a three-run homer down the left field line to give the Sounds a 10-8 lead.
The comeback was completed when Trevor Kelley retired the Redbirds in order in the ninth inning.
The Sounds have the next four days off for the All-Star break and resume play Friday night in Louisville. The first pitch of the three-game series in Kentucky is scheduled for 6:05pm (CDT).
