For the sixth consecutive ball game the Sounds (19-20) drew first blood but unlike the previous five it wasn’t the long ball that broke the ice. With the bases loaded in the top of the third inning, Matt Chapman drew a walk to score Jaycob Brugman who started the two out rally with a base hit.

The following batter, Kent Matthes hit his 16th double of the season. He then scored on a Bryan Anderson ground-rule double on the very next pitch and the Sounds led 2-0. Anderson and the Sounds were just getting started.
