Sounds Get Blasted by San Antonio on Monday Night

In what was a close game in the first half of the game, San Antonio scored six runs in the fifth inning to break open their lead and continued to score, eventually winning 11-1. Two-time MLB All-Star Gio Gonzalez made a rehab start for San Antonio and allowed the only run to Nashville.

San Antonio scored first in the bottom of the first when Trent Grisham hit a lead-off homer on a fly ball to right-center field, giving the Missions a 1-0 lead. Nashville’s starting pitcher Seth Maness pitched well after that, getting the Missions to ground into double plays in three of the first four innings.

Eli White was the one who tagged the run on Gonzalez when he hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. It was his 12th home run of the season. That tied the game at one apiece.

But San Antonio exploded for six runs in the fifth inning. Cory Spangenberg opened the inning up with a two-run single. David Freitas had an RBI single himself before Travis Shaw hit a three-run home run to make the score 6-1, Missions.
