Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds erased an early deficit and held off the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp to take an 8-5 win in front of 7,748 fans at First Horizon Park on Sunday afternoon. The victory was Nashville’s fourth in the six-game series, giving them their 16th series win of the season.
Trailing 4-1 in the middle of the fourth, Nashville drew even after several huge homers. Cam Devanney hit his second home run as a Sound to left field, a two-run blast that also scored Jon Singleton. Two batters later, Weston Wilson made it a 4-4 game with a solo shot to left.
The Sounds took the lead thanks to back-to-back hits in the fifth. Esteury Ruiz got things started with a double, stole third, then scored on Singleton’s RBI single to make it a 5-4 game.
Four consecutive hits in the bottom of the seventh gave Nashville a few insurance runs. Jonathan Davis doubled and scored on Ruiz’s base knock. Devanney tacked on another RBI with a single that scored Ruiz a few batters later. Before the inning was out, Singleton raced home on a wild pitch for the eighth run.
Hobie Harris nailed down his sixth save of the season, stranding a baserunner in an otherwise quiet ninth inning.
