New Orleans, LA – Matt Chapman’s three-homer game wasn’t enough for the Nashville Sounds in a 6-5 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs Saturday night at Zephyr Field.
Chapman hit a home run in each of his first three at bats to become the seventh player in Sounds (83-58) history to hit three in a single game. The 23-year-old has seven home runs in 17 games with the Sounds and 36 in 134 games between Nashville and Double-A Midland.
The last three-homer game by a Sounds player was Russell Branyan who also did it against New Orleans on May 16th, 2008. Others to accomplish the feat include Ryan Braun, Craig Wilson, Darnell Coles, Dan Pasqua and Steve Balboni.
