Game Called in Sixth After 134 Minutes of Total Delay
Metairie, LA – Behind Matt Carson’s power hitting and baserunning, the Nashville Sounds defeated the New Orleans Zephyrs 6-3 (6) at rain-soaked Zephyr Field on Tuesday afternoon.
The game’s original 11:00am start time was pushed back one hundred minutes due to rain. It was not the first time the tarp would come on the field.
After falling behind 1-0 after one, Matt Carson gave the Sounds a 3-1 advantage that scored Niuman Romero and Jason Pridie. In his next appearance, Carson stole second and went to third on a throwing error by Zephyrs catcher Brandon Bantz in the fourth inning. He then scored on a Luke Carlin sacrifice fly and the Sounds led 4-1.
Chris Bassitt, Arnold Leon Pitch Well in Losses
Metairie, LA – The New Orleans Zephyrs beat the Nashville Sounds twice on Monday night at Zephyr Field, taking game one 4-3, and game two 3-1.
The first matchup featured the completion of the contest the two teams began on April 27th, a game that Arnold Leon initially started. The Zephyrs could not use their original starter, Adam Conley, because he was promoted to Miami yesterday. Leon threw 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball before rain ended his outing the first time.
After the game resumed, Leon retired the first 9 batters he faced before Juan Diaz singled with two outs in the seventh. Leon would walk the next two batters and manager Steve Scarsone went to his bullpen attempting to preserve the 2-0 lead the Sounds had earned via RBI from Joey Wendle and Kent Matthes earlier in the game.
Brad Mills Allows Just Two Runs And Lowers ERA To 3.66
Metairie, LA – The Sounds used ninth inning heroics for the second straight game to move past New Orleans on Sunday afternoon at Zephyr Field, 3-2.
Held even in a 2-2 tie, Nashville entered the ninth inning trying to repeat last night’s success of overcoming the Zephyrs late. The feat seemed too great after New Orleans recorded two quick outs, but the Sounds had other things in mind.
Jason Pridie smoked a line drive out to left that went for his 13th double of the year and two batters later, Alden Carrithers drove him in with a two-out single. It was the left fielder’s first hit of the game but it was enough to help Nashville move to 28-29 on the year.

The Nashville pitching staff was marvelous yet again, fanning a season-best 15 hitters. Bassitt tossed the club’s 17th quality start and the bullpen failed to allow a run to extend their streak to the last 19.2 innings. The Sounds improved to a league-best 9-1 in their last 10 games.
Nashville Sounds Come One Out Away From Victory Before Fresno Delivers Walk-Off Hit
Fresno, CA – Brad Mills delivered a stunning start and Kent Matthes roped a run-scoring double in the 11th, but the Fresno Grizzlies scored a pair of runs late to walk-off over the Sounds on Saturday night at Chukchansi Park with a 3-2 win.
Despite Mills’ 1-5 record this season, the lefty was coming in riding a quality start streak through his last three outings. He made it four straight by throwing 7.0 shutout innings with six strikeouts and no runs. Mills made it through his eighth start of 2015 with just 74 pitches, 52 going for strikes, never walking a batter. The veteran took the no-decision, but lowered his ERA to 3.91.

Nashville, TN – Kent Matthes snapped a 0-for-18 streak with an RBI double and the Sounds walked-off with a 2-1 victory over the New Orleans Zephyrs on Tuesday night at First Tennessee Park.
Sounds leadoff hitter Matt Carson – who had already been on base three times in the game without even registering a hit – led off the ninth with a double. Next batter, Joey Wendle flew out to left field and the walk-off was suddenly in doubt; Nashville had twice already squandered bases loaded with one out situations on the night.
Right-Hander Kendall Graveman Allows Two Unearned Runs Over 7.0 Innings
Nashville, TN – Kendall Graveman delivered a stellar start for Nashville and the Sounds snapped their four-game losing skid with a 6-2 win over New Orleans at First Tennessee Park on Sunday.

Josh Hamilton Goes 1-for-3 in First Rehab Appearance

The Sounds’ southpaw earned his first win of the season, pitching seven scoreless innings, surrendering just four hits and striking out five. Sounds pitching has been outstanding as of late, throwing five quality starts in their last seven games, posting a 2.47 ERA over that stretch.
