Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds’ offense did not live up to the Friday Fireworks mantra and were shutout by the Omaha Storm Chasers 5-0 in front of a sellout crowd of 10,481 at First Tennessee Park. It was the second time in the 2018 campaign the Sounds have been shutout.
Sounds starter Eric Jokisch cruised through the first three innings, allowing just two hits before Omaha broke through in the fourth inning. Hunter Dozier collected a one-out double and came around to score when Frank Schwindel squeaked a triple just fair inside the first base bag that trickled down into the right field corner. Schwindel was brought home on a sacrifice groundout by Ryan O’Hearn.
Nashville, TN – The recent damage caused by wind and tornados in the Montgomery County area brings out the best in people, as strangers reach out to help others in need. Unfortunately, the aftermath of a crisis also brings out contractors who take advantage of those who have already been victimized.
As a follow up, your Better Business Bureau is warning local residents affected by the recent storms to beware of storm chasers and out-of-town contractors soliciting business.
“It is not uncommon for out-of-town storm chasers to go door-to-door offering assistance after storms like the ones we had on Saturday night,” said Robyn Householder, President & CEO of Better Business Bureau. “Storm chasers may not have proper licensure for your area and may offer quick fixes or make big promises for which they won’t deliver.”
