Papillion, NE – The Nashville Sounds were edged by the Omaha Storm Chasers 4-1 in Sunday’s matinee. The victory clinched the three-game series for Omaha.
Nashville’s Frankie Montas and Omaha’s Clay Bucholz went toe-to-toe on the mound as they both cruised through the first five innings without allowing a run. Omaha finally broke the seal on the scoreless ball game in the sixth inning. After inducing a fly out to begin the inning, Montas yielded a single to Logan Moon and walked Ramon Torres before being pulled from the game.
Papillion, NE – The Nashville Sounds offense was unable to find a groove Saturday night as they were defeated 6-2 in their series opener against the Omaha Storm Chasers.
One night after not registering a base hit until the sixth inning Friday night, the Sounds wasted no time getting into the hit column Saturday night. Jorge Mateo lined a base hit to lead off the game and came around to score on Dustin Fowler’s sacrifice fly to spot James Naile with a 1-0 lead. Naile, however was unable to maintain the advantage as he yielded a two-run double from Frank Schwindel with two outs in the first inning. The runs snapped an 18.1 scoreless innings streak to begin the season for Naile.

Yet Cameron Maybin has been the outfield presence the Braves have sorely needed in 2015, quickly becoming an every-day fixture in centerfield and playing exemplary defense as such to offset his sometimes-streaky offense.
