The Nashville Sounds and Oklahoma City Dodgers finished the top of the fourth inning before rain at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark forced the game to be suspended. Oklahoma City was up 4-0 before the game was stopped.
All four runs by the Dodgers were scored in the bottom of the third inning. With runners on first and second, Matt Beaty singled to score Drew Jackson. Kyle Garlick doubled to score Daniel Castro and Beaty. Edwin Rios singled to score Garlick and put the score at 4-0.
The two teams will continue the game as part of a doubleheader in one of the four games from August 19 to 22 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. The suspended game will be played as a full nine-inning contest and game two will follow roughly 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game and be a seven-inning contest.
