Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds concluded a wild day with a 2-1 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers on a walk-off wild pitch in front of 8,087 fans Friday night at First Tennessee Park.
With the bases loaded and nobody out in a 1-1 game in the bottom of the ninth, Omaha’s Clayton Mortensen uncorked a pitch in the dirt that got away from catcher Parker Morin. Sounds shortstop Chad Pinder raced home with the winning run to push Nashville’s record to 55-45.
The start of the game was delayed due to travel delays the Sounds and much of the Pacific Coast League experienced Thursday night and into Friday. The team didn’t arrive in Nashville until close to 6:30pm.
El Paso, TX – A season-high five home runs helped the Nashville Sounds to a series-opening 13-3 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Thursday night at Southwest University Park.
Renato Nunez, Matt Olson, Joey Wendle, Jaycob Brugman and Bruce Maxwell all clubbed homers as the Sounds pounded out 19 hits in the lopsided win to begin the unofficial start of the second half.
Already with a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, Renato Nunez belted the first homer of the game to extend the lead to 3-0. His two-run shot to left scored Max Muncy who knocked in the first run of the game with a base hit to right field.
Nashville, TN – A 14-hit outburst wasn’t enough for the Nashville Sounds in an 8-6 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs in front of a sellout crowd of 10,018 fans Saturday night at First Tennessee Park.
Every Nashville player in the starting lineup had at least one hit while Jaycob Brugman and Colin Walsh had three apiece.
The offensive outburst went for naught when the Zephyrs erupted for six runs in the fifth inning. Starter Chris Smith was cruising and the Sounds held a 3-0 lead going into the top of the fifth before disaster struck.
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.
Sounds starter Dillon Overton was brilliant in his return to the club as he went six innings allowing just two runs on seven hits. He picked up his eighth straight win as a Sound and his ninth of the season.

In a battle of first place teams in the PCL’s American Conference, Oklahoma City grabbed game one of the four-game series thanks to scoring in five different innings.

Des Moines, IA – Five errors led to the downfall of the short-handed Nashville Sounds in a 7-4 loss to the Iowa Cubs Friday night at Principal Park.
The season-high in miscues led to a three-run second inning the Sounds (44-32) couldn’t recover from. With the game even at 1-1, starter Jesse Hahn had to face several extra batters in the frame after an error by Ryon Healy and two from Renato Nunez.
When the damage was done, Iowa (35-37) held a 4-1 lead heading to the third. The Sounds battled back and scored a pair of runs to pull within one.
Nashville, TN – Chad Pinder hit a tie-breaking home run in the sixth inning to lift the Nashville Sounds to a 3-2 win over the Round Rock Express in front of a sellout crowd of 10,390 Saturday night at First Tennessee Park.
It’s the third consecutive sellout for the Sounds (42-27) who extended their American Southern Division lead to five games over the Express (36-31). The three straight capacity crowds match a Sounds record for consecutive sellouts in the PCL era.
Both teams got a pair of runs in the second inning to get the scoring started early. Round Rock’s Drew Robinson belted a booming two-run homer off Henderson Alvarez to get the Express out to a 2-0 lead.
