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.

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.
