Nashville Sounds blanked by Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp at First Horizon Park

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds had a rare offensive night without fireworks in a 4-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp in front of 7,871 fans at First Horizon Park on Friday night.

The Jumbo Shrimp added their second run of the night in the fifth and a pair of runs in the seventh to pull away. It was only the fourth time the Sounds suffered a shutout loss in 2022.
 
Game five of the series is scheduled for Saturday night at First Horizon Park. Right-hander Caleb Boushley (11-2, 3.51) starts for the Sounds. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm CT.
