Memphis, TN – Randall Grichuk’s walk-off single to deep center field gave the Memphis Redbirds a 2-1 win over the Nashville Sounds Friday night at AutoZone Park.
Grichuk’s drive came with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. Sounds (31-28) reliever Simon Castro found himself in a jam after issuing a leadoff walk to Patrick Wisdom with the score even at 1-1.
A sacrifice bunt moved Wisdom to second, and a wild pitch put him 90 feet away. Castro came back to strike out Wilfredo Tovar, but then hit Todd Cunningham and intentionally walked Nick Martini to load the bases.
Papillion, NB – A pair of errors from Sounds second baseman, Joey Wendle, cost Nashville dearly as the Omaha Storm Chasers eked out a 4-2 victory Thursday night. The loss meant a series split for the Sounds who were seeking a third consecutive series win.
The first error of the evening from Wendle came in the first inning as he was playing in shallow right field with the shift on against left handed hitting first baseman Ryan O’Hearn was at the plate. The error allowed Ruben Sosa to come around to score to put Omaha out in front.
Nashville responded with a run of its own in the next half inning as Renato Nunez doubled to begin the frame, advanced to third on a Matt Chapman single, and scored on a sacrifice fly from Jaff Decker.
Memphis, TN – The Memphis Redbirds scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to send the Nashville Sounds to a heart-breaking 7-6 loss Thursday night at AutoZone Park.
Armed with a 6-5 lead going into the bottom of the ninth, the Sounds were three outs away from clinching the American Southern Division title after Round Rock defeated New Orleans.
The celebration was put on hold when Memphis center fielder Harrison Bader drilled a game-tying solo home run off Sounds reliever Aaron Kurcz to level the score at 6-6.
Memphis, TN – The Memphis Redbirds and Michael McKenry’s walk-off home run provided the last laugh in a 7-6 win over the Nashville Sounds Wednesday night at AutoZone Park.
McKenry’s game-winning solo blast with two outs in the bottom of the ninth came just moments after Max Muncy tied the game with a two-run homer in the top of the ninth.
With the Sounds (48-39) trailing 6-4, Muncy was summoned as a pinch-hitter for Carson Blair. With Joey Wendle leading from second base, Muncy hit an opposite field shot to even the game at 6-6 with one out in the top of the ninth.
Memphis, TN – The Nashville Sounds ended their five game losing streak in fashion by clubbing three home runs to take an 8-2 win over the Memphis Redbirds Tuesday night from AutoZone Park.
Chad Pinder, Ryon Healy, and Bruce Maxwell each homered to pace the Sounds to the win. Healy would finish a triple away from the cycle as the Sounds designated hitter went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI double to plate half of the Sounds eight runs.

The center fielder hit the second pitch he saw from J.B. Wendelken into The Band Box to break a 4-4 tie in extra innings.
The solo blast came just moments after the Sounds squandered a golden opportunity in the bottom of the ninth inning. With the game even at 4-4, Arismendy Alcantara sent a one-out triple into the left field corner to put the winning run 90 feet away.
Nashville, TN – The Memphis Redbirds used a nine-strikeout performance from starter Alex Reyes on their way to a 4-3 win over the Nashville Sounds in front of 5,369 fans at First Tennessee Park Monday night.
Reyes’ solid outing started early as he struck out the side in the first inning. The top prospect in the St. Louis Cardinals organization, according to Baseball America, allowed one run on two hits in his second win of the season.
While Reyes was keeping the Sounds off the bases, Jesse Hahn was struggling to find the strike zone for Nashville.
