In a game where the Nashville Sounds were trailing in the first half of the game, they were able to beat the Sacramento River Cats 13-10 thanks to a late seven-run inning on Tuesday.

The first runs of the game came from the Sounds in the top of the second inning. Patrick Wisdom led off with a double and Eli White traded places with him, hitting a double himself to score the first run. White would later score on an error to make it 2-0 early.

Sacramento grabbed lead immediately in the bottom of the second inning. Francisco Pena hit a solo home run to give the River Cats their first run. Levi Michael hit a two-run double to take the lead later in the inning to give Sacramento the 3-2 lead.
