Nashville Drops Third Straight to Omaha

The Nashville Sounds found themselves behind early when the Omaha Storm Chasers put up eight-runs in the first inning. They were able to hold on to that lead for the remainder of the game, eventually putting the Sounds away, 11-3.

The eight-run inning in the first came on seven hits. Jorge Bonifacio hit a single with the bases loaded to score the first run. Two more runs scored on a Nick Dini single. Jecksson Flores hit an RBI single to add another. Humberto Arteaga would knock in two more with a single. The remaining base runs scored on an Erick Mejia triple to give Omaha the early 8-0 lead.

Tim Dillard gave up each of those runs but settled down and shutout the Storm Chasers for the next three innings. However, he gave up two more runs in the sixth inning, allowing 10 runs for his second consecutive start.

The first run scored for Nashville came in the fifth inning on a solo home run by Jett Bandy to lead off the inning. It was his ninth home run of the season.
