Sounds first baseman Matt Olson , right fielder Mark Canha  and designated hitter Jaff Decker  combined for seven hits and six RBI, including a homer from Olson, while starting pitcher Ben Bracewell  tossed six quality frames in Nashville's 10-1 victory over the Omaha Storm Chasers on Thursday evening in front of 6,638 fans at Werner Park.

Following a single Sounds tally in the second frame, Canha and Decker contributed to a four-run third, each driving in two runs via a double and single, respectively. Olson then struck for two more scores of the evening by launching a two-run blast to deep right-center, his 18th longball of the season to make it 7-1. LF Kenny Wilson capped Nashville's scoring with a bases-clearing triple in the ninth.

The trio of Canha (3-5, 3 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI), Olson (2-5, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI) and Decker (2-4, 2 RBI), along with 2B Joey Wendle (2-4, R, 2B, BB), SS Franklin Barreto (2-5, 2 R) and CF Yairo Nunez (2-5, R, RBI), all tallied two or more knocks in the victory. No Omaha batters accrued a multi-hit effort, though 1B Ryan O'Hearn (1-3, BB) and LF Terrance Gore (1-2, R, BB) each reached base twice via a hit and walk.

The Storm Chasers got their lone run of the night thanks to CF Billy Burns ' sacrifice fly to left in the third frame. Bracewell (6.0 IP, 2 H, R, ER, BB) yielded that lone run, earning the victory while allowing just two hits in his six solid innings of work. Nashville relievers Felix Doubront (1.0 IP, H, 2 K) and Lou Trivino (1.0 IP, K) would follow by combining for the final three scoreless frames. Omaha southpaw Sam Selman (2.1 IP, H, BB, 2 K) fired 2.1 shutout innings in support of starter Yender Caramo (5.0 IP, 11 H, 7 R, 7 ER, BB, K), who suffered the defeat.

The two squads are set to continue their four-game set on Friday evening, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT at Werner Park. RHP Luke Farrell (7-4, 4.11) is anticipated to toe the rubber for the Storm Chasers, with the Sounds slated to give the nod to RHP Jesse Hahn (0-0, 9.82).
