Nashville Sounds put away Louisville Bats, 9-3

 

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Nashville Sounds right-hander Bowden Francis did a little bit of everything to help the club to a 9-3 win over the Louisville Bats in front of a sellout crowd of 11,686 at First Horizon Park on Sunday night. It was the sixth-largest crowd in First Horizon Park history.

Francis limited the Bats to one run on three hits over six innings. He walked a pair of batters and struck out four in his fourth win in a Sounds uniform. For good measure, Francis collected a pair of infield singles at the plate.

The only run Francis allowed was a lead-off home run to Louisville second baseman Max Schrock. Only one Louisville batter made it to second base against Francis the rest of the way.
