NASHVILLE, Tennessee - Rangel Ravelo homered to extend his hitting streak to 19 games, one shy of tying the franchise record, but the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) took the series finale with the Memphis Redbirds (23-25) Friday night in Nashville, Tenn., 10-6.

Memphis led 6-0, but the Sounds (19-28) scored the final 10 runs of the game. After a one-out walk in the top of the third, the next 18 Redbirds were retired until a one-out single in the top of the ninth.

Ravelo's two-run home run capped a six-run second inning for the Redbirds and brought his hitting streak to 19-straight contests. With a hit in his next game, he will match Adam Kennedy for the franchise record for consecutive games with a hit. Kennedy hit in 20-straight from June 28-Aug. 12, 1999.

Max Schrock had a two-run double in that second inning, Tommy Edman had a sacrifice fly, and Ramon Urias drew a bases-loaded walk.

But it was all Sounds after that, with Nashville scoring two in the second, three in the third, one in the sixth, and four in the seventh to secure the victory.

Jake Woodford started and only gave up three hits, but he was hampered by six walks. He struck out five in 5.0 innings. Chasen Shreve took the loss, walking three and surrendering four runs in one-third of an inning.

The Redbirds had two outfield assists in the game, with Drew Robinson getting an out at second base and Tyler O'Neill notching an out at third.

The Redbirds now return to AutoZone Park tomorrow at 6:35 p.m. to start a nine-day, 10-game homestand through Sunday, June 2.
