Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsMetairie, LA – Trailing by a pair of runs and a Sound on every base in the ninth inning, Jaff Decker roped a bases-clearing double to put the Sounds in front for good. Nashville overcame the New Orleans Baby Cakes 8-6 Saturday evening at The Shrine on Airline.

Yairo Muñoz added an insurance run for the Sounds with a sacrifice fly after Decker swiped third base.
