Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – It was a sloppy Thursday night in Nashville between the Sounds and the Iowa Cubs in front of 10,469 fans at First Tennessee Park. A total of six runs scored but just two were earned in Iowa’s 4-2 victory.

The first two batters of the ball game reached on base hits for the Sounds. Franklin Barreto came around to open the scoring on a sacrifice fly from Matt Olson.

Nashville starter, Paul Blackburn was superb through the first five innings but things unraveled for him in the sixth. Stephen Bruno reached on an error by the shortstop Franklin Barreto. Blackburn then issued back-to-back free passes to load the bases for Jacob Hannemann who promptly singled home the game-tying run. The Sounds hurler recorded outs on the next two hitters but yielded a two-run double to Victor Caratini to surrender the lead to the I-Cubs.
