Nashville Sounds get out front early, hold off Gwinnett Stripers for 2-1 win at First Horizon Park

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds took an early lead and kept the Gwinnett Stripers from putting up much of a fight in a 2-1 victory at First Horizon Park on Wednesday night.

Gwinnett struck first with a lone run in the first inning, but the Sounds did not waste any time in their trip to the plate. Sal Frelick tripled to start the game in his first at-bat in Nashville. Next, Brice Turang crushed a two-run home run to right field, giving Nashville a 2-1 lead.

Tyler Herb took over from that point. The right-hander held Gwinnett to four hits in the 5.0 inning-start. He tied a season-high by fanning eight Stripers and did not allow a walk.

Nashville’s bullpen followed Herb’s dominance with a masterpiece of their own. Jake Cousins notched two strikeouts in his fifth rehab appearance with the Sounds to close out the sixth. Peter Strzelecki took over for the seventh and put down a couple more Stripers via strikeout. Trevor Kelley added a scoreless eighth, and Luis Perdomo nailed down the save with a 1-2-3 ninth.
It’ll be a doubleheader for the Sounds and Stripers tomorrow at First Horizon Park. Game one will feature rehabbing Brewers starter Adrian Houser (0-0, 0.00) going for Nashville, facing Gwinnett’s Darius Vines (0-0, 0.00). The Stripers will send out Freddy Tarnok (1-0, 2.08) in game two. Nashville’s hurler in the nightcap is to be determined.

The first game will start at 5:35pm CT, with game two to follow 30 minutes after the conclusion of game one.
