Nashville Sounds lose to Memphis 2-1 in Montas complete game effort

 

Nashville SoundsMemphis, Tn — Frankie Montas delivered a complete game, but the Nashville Sounds fell to the Memphis Redbirds, 2-1, Monday afternoon at AutoZone Park.

Montas used only 93 pitches to breeze through eight innings. The right-hander yielded a pair of solo home runs to Redbirds’ right field Tyler O’Neill. The solo blasts were enough as Nashville squandered two golden opportunities in the middle innings.

O’Neill hit a solo home run in the second, but Nashville’s Anthony Garcia answered with a solo blast in the top of the fourth to even the game at 1-1. The tie didn’t last long as O’Neill launched his second homer of the day in the bottom of the fourth to give Memphis a 2-1 lead.
