Papillion, NB – The Nashville Sounds made history Wednesday night by no-hitting the Omaha Storm Chasers. A combined effort from Chris Smith, Sean Doolittle, Tucker Healy, and Simon Castro got the job done for the Sounds in their 4-0 victory. It was the seventh no-hitter thrown in club history and first since Manny Parra’s perfect game in 2007.
Smith, the Sounds starter, cruised through the first six innings, allowing just two base runners via base on balls. He then handed the ball off to Doolittle who is with the club on a Major League rehab assignment. Doolittle needed just 12 pitches to retire the three Storm Chasers he faced including two punch outs.
Healy came on in the eighth inning and sat the three Omaha hitters he saw down in order on a mere nine pitches.

After falling behind 1-0 in the top of the second inning, Nashville blasted three homers to back Gossett’s performance. Matt Chapman, Matt Olson and Bryan Anderson all homered in the win.
Memphis, TN – Another strong performance by starter Dillon Overton led the Nashville Sounds to a 2-1 win over the Memphis Redbirds Saturday night at AutoZone Park.
The win was the 46th on the road for the American Southern Division champions. It matches the franchise record for most road wins in a season set by the 1980 Sounds club that also won 46 away from Nashville. The Sounds have five more road games left in the regular season.
Overton limited the Redbirds to one run on five hits in six innings. He issued one walk and struck out four in his 13th win of the season. The left-hander has 13 quality starts and the Sounds are 14-6 in games he starts.

Papillion, NB – Jaycob Brugman delivered a tie-breaking two-run double in the top of the ninth inning to send the Nashville Sounds to an 8-6 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers Saturday night at Werner Park.

At 73-55, the Sounds’ magic number is at eight with 16 games to play. They lead second-place New Orleans by nine games in the American Southern Division standings.

Rehabbing Reliever Sean Doolittle Strikes Out Side In Scoreless Inning
Nashville, TN – The Sounds were bested by the Chihuahuas on the Bark in the Park night at First Tennessee Park, falling by a 4-3 score in the Sunday evening contest.
The one-run game was Nashville’s 37th this season, dropping their record in those games to 17-20. After scoring early, the Sounds were shut out in the final eight frames and moved to 55-67 on the season.
Entering Sunday’s game, Nashville had scored at least 20 more runs in the first inning than any other frame and kept it rolling with even more production. The inning featured singles from Joey Wendle, Jake Smolinski, Jason Pridie and Brent Morel but an error by right fielder Rymer Liriano proved most costly. The four hits put the Sounds on top 3-0.

Next batter Jake Smolinski drove Joey Wendle in on a sacrifice fly and Rangel Ravelo stepped to the plate. The Oakland Athletics’ prospect delivered, recording his first career Triple-A triple, giving Nashville a 4-0 lead.

Des Moines, IA – The Sounds were on the winning side of a tight game Tuesday night, stealing the series opener against the Cubs at Principal Park by a score of 3-2.
Both teams recorded just seven hits, but Nashville never trailed Iowa. Sounds pitching struck out 11 and never walked a batter at any point during the win.
The Sounds stayed on par with a season storyline by scoring a run in the first inning. Andy Parrino found himself in the leadoff spot for just the fourth time this year and made an impact right out of the gate with a double to left. After a groundout advanced the shortstop to third, reigning PCL Player of the Week Ryan Roberts scored him with a sacrifice fly.
