Topic: Alden Carrithers
Oklahoma City, OK – A big third inning led the Oklahoma City Dodgers to a sweep of the Nashville Sounds as they cruised to a 4-2 victory at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Sunday night.
The Sounds got on the board first, hanging two runs in the top of the third courtesy of RBI singles via Anthony Aliotti and Jason Pridie after Alden Carrithers led the inning off with a double down the right field line.
Momentum shifted quickly however. Hector Olivera led off the bottom half of the inning with a single and Buck Britton flied out.
Zach Neal Suffers First Loss of the Season
Oklahoma City, OK – For the first time this season Sounds’ starter Zach Neal was beaten, as Oklahoma City defeated Nashville 6-4 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Saturday night.
Neal had five wins in as many appearances with Nashville posting a 1.60 ERA entering tonight’s action, including a win over Oklahoma City at First Tennessee Park on April 24th. After giving up just six runs all season, the Dodgers matched that total, knocking the Sounds’ starter out of the game with just one out in the fifth.
Chris Bassitt, Arnold Leon Pitch Well in Losses
Metairie, LA – The New Orleans Zephyrs beat the Nashville Sounds twice on Monday night at Zephyr Field, taking game one 4-3, and game two 3-1.
The first matchup featured the completion of the contest the two teams began on April 27th, a game that Arnold Leon initially started. The Zephyrs could not use their original starter, Adam Conley, because he was promoted to Miami yesterday. Leon threw 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball before rain ended his outing the first time.
After the game resumed, Leon retired the first 9 batters he faced before Juan Diaz singled with two outs in the seventh. Leon would walk the next two batters and manager Steve Scarsone went to his bullpen attempting to preserve the 2-0 lead the Sounds had earned via RBI from Joey Wendle and Kent Matthes earlier in the game.
Brad Mills Allows Just Two Runs And Lowers ERA To 3.66
Metairie, LA – The Sounds used ninth inning heroics for the second straight game to move past New Orleans on Sunday afternoon at Zephyr Field, 3-2.
Held even in a 2-2 tie, Nashville entered the ninth inning trying to repeat last night’s success of overcoming the Zephyrs late. The feat seemed too great after New Orleans recorded two quick outs, but the Sounds had other things in mind.
Jason Pridie smoked a line drive out to left that went for his 13th double of the year and two batters later, Alden Carrithers drove him in with a two-out single. It was the left fielder’s first hit of the game but it was enough to help Nashville move to 28-29 on the year.

Fresno, CA – Ryan Roberts hit his first home run of the season, but it was not enough as Nashville lost to Fresno 5-3 at Chukchansi Park on Sunday afternoon.
