Nashville Sounds never get on track in 9-3 loss at Memphis Redbirds

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsMemphis, TN – The Nashville Sounds fell in an early 8-0 hole against the Memphis Redbirds and never recovered, losing 9-3 on Friday night at AutoZone Park in the opener of a four-game series. With only 10 games left in the season, Memphis is now one win or one Sounds loss away from eliminating the Sounds from playoff contention and clinching the American Southern division.

Jesus Luzardo gave up one run in the first and then labored through a five-run, 38-pitch second inning. Down 6-0 in the third, he retired his first two batters before a single from Lane Thomas and a two-run homer by Randy Arozarena made it 8-0.
