  • Nashville Sounds 2008 season thread

    I don't know who will be interested in this but I'm planning on starting a thread dedicated to the Brewers AAA affiliate, Nashville Sounds (Pacific Coast League). I did something similar last year but more as a way of tracking Ryan Brauns progress before his Major League call up.

    I follow the team reasonably closely so I'll post game reports, news and anything else of note.

    In 2008 the Sounds will look to win their division for the fourth year in a row.

      April 1st vs Belmont

      As has become an annual tradition, the Nashville Sounds preceded their regular season with an exhibition game against the Belmont Bruins. This year the Sounds won the contest 4-1 in seven innings.

        April 3rd @ New Orleans

        The Sounds struggled to turn baserunners into runs in their Opening Day contest against the New Orleans Zephyrs at Zephr Field, going down 5-2 despite collecting 10 hits. With the exception of short stop Ozzy Chavez all the Sounds starters got a base hit, with Adam Heether (third base) and Abrahan Nunez (second base) collecting two hits apiece.

        Brendon Katin drove in Vinny Rottino in the fourth inning with an RBI double, but failed to capitalise on having second and third and only one out.
        In the ninth, with the game almost a foregone conclusion, Abraham Nunez drove in Adam Heether for the Sounds only other run of the night.

        Sounds starter Zach Jackson took the loss, going six innings whilst giving up four runs on eight hits whilst fanning two.

        Sounds current record: 0-1

          April 4th @ New Orleans

          The Sounds once again went down to New Orleans in their seaosn opening series at Zephyr Field, this time falling 7-5.

          The news of interest coming from this game was that Yovanni Gallardo made the rehab start for the Sounds. He went four innings, throwing 75 pitches (50 strikes). Allowing three runs on six hits whilst walking one and striking out five. Reliever Jason Shiel took the loss after giving up three earned in 1 and a third innings.

          On the offensive side of things, Laynce Nix collected three hits whilst left fielder Hernan Irrabarren collected two hits along with Brad Nelson, Ozzy Chavez and Brendon Katin. Gallardo and Russel Branyon each had one hit for the Sounds.
          Nix and Katin both drove in two runs whilst Abraham Nunez got the other RBi on a ground out in the eighth inning.

          BOX SCORE

          Sounds current record: 0-2

            Really not much to report on from todays game with the Sounds once again going down to the Zephyrs. This time by a score of 2-0.

            The Sounds were 5-hit on the day, whilst striking out 11 times.

            Starter Chris Narveson took the loss, giving up two runs on four hits in five innings.

            Word out of Nashville is that Yovanni Gallardo will likely start two more games for the Sounds before returning to the Major League roster.

            BOX SCORE

            Sounds current record: 0-3

              What a difference a day makes! After being blanked yesterday, the Sounds in turn shut out the Zephyrs 4-0 in their series finale.

              Four Sounds pitchers combined to limit New Orleans to just three hits on the day. Starter Nic Ungs (win) gave up the three hits in his five innings, whilst relievers Steve Bray, Tim Dillard and Melqui Torres threw four no-hit innings in relief.

              Catcher Vinny Rottino did most of the damage for the Sounds hitting a solo shot in the fourth inning off of New Orleans starter Joselo Diaz. He also drove in runs on sacrafice flies in the sixth and eighth innings.
              The fourth run was scored after Russel Branyan stole home (!) in the eighth inning.

              BOX SCORE

              The Sounds start their series at Oklahoma tomorrow.

              Sounds current record: 1-3

                April 7th @ Oklahoma

                The disappointing start to the season by the Sounds continued tonight going down to the Oklahoma Redhawks 6-1 in their series opener at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.

                For a team who last year set the PCL record for fielding percentage their defense was below average this evening, committing 3 errors in the game.

                Hernan Iribarren scored the Sounds lone run of the game in the top of the first inning after scoring on Vinny Rottino's ground out.
                For the Redhawks, former Brewer Kevin Mench had two doubles, two runs scored and one run driven in.

                Sounds starter Lindsay Gulin had a brief outing. Giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits in 3 2/3 innings.

                The series continues from Oklahoma City tomorrow night, starting at 7:05pm central time.

                BOX SCORE

                Sounds current record: 1-4
