Nashville Sounds nab 8-4 win at Tacoma Rainers

 

Young 19-Year-Old Makes Impressive Debut For Nashville In Win

Nashville SoundsTacoma, WA – Young Jesus Zambrano provided a welcomed spark during the second game of a doubleheader against Tacoma on Sunday night, making a strong debut and helping Nashville to an 8-4 win in the series finale.

It had been a tough series for the Nashville pitching staff going into Sunday’s series finale, but when the youthful Zambrano was called upon, he answered in a big way. Fresh off his 19th birthday just one week ago, the right-hander was promoted from the AZL A’s earlier in the day to make his first start above the Arizona League level in his brief three-year career. He did not disappoint.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: Long September

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – As the calendar readies a turn to September and the Braves postseason chances officially dwindle to zero, it’s time to take stock of what’s important.

The Atlanta Braves are in third place in the National League East, but need a telescope to see the top of the division and are somehow even further back in the Wild Card hunt. Barring a season-ending run the likes of which have never been seen (to reach 85 wins, Atlanta would need to go 31-4 the rest of the way as of Wednesday, and even that may not be enough to garner a postseason bid), the competitive part of the season is over.
