MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Nashville Sounds plated six unanswered runs over the final five innings but ended up a run short in a 7-6 loss to the Memphis Redbirds on Thursday night at AutoZone Park.
The Redbirds sent 11 batters to the plate in a six-run third inning to lead big early. Memphis’ Cory Spangenberg singled home another run to give Memphis a 7-0 advantage through four frames.
Andruw Monasterio and the Sounds put an end to the shutout in the fifth inning. With two on, Monasterio just cleared the left field wall for a three-run shot to get Nashville within four runs. In the sixth inning, a Tyler White single and David Dahl sacrifice fly made it a 7-5 game.
Nashville came up just short after threatening in the eighth and ninth innings. After two walks and a Dahl single, Monasterio was set down via strikeout by Memphis’ Kodi Whitley to keep it a two-run game.
Weston Wilson cranked a solo shot to get Nashville within a run in the ninth. The Sounds had the tying run at third base and the go-ahead run at first in the ninth with nobody out. Unfortunately, Nashville could not get the big hit to tie the game.
