Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsPapillion, NE – The Nashville Sounds hit back-to-back home runs two different times en route to a 7-3 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers Tuesday afternoon at Werner Park.

Right fielder Jaff Decker was in on both in his sixth multi-homer game of his career. With Omaha leading 1-0 in the top of the second, Decker belted a home run to left field just moments after Matt Chapman drew a walk. Decker’s first long ball of the season gave Nashville (30-26) the lead for good at 2-1.

On the very next pitch from Omaha starter Josh Staumont, Matt McBride clobbered a solo homer to deep left field to extend the lead to 3-1.
