NASHVILLE - Thomas Jankins tossed five scoreless innings of one-hit ball to lead the Missions to a 6-0 whitewash of the Sounds and a split of their Sunday afternoon double header at First Tennessee Park.

Jankins combined with Josh Fields and Taylor Williams on a one-hitter as San Antonio (9-8) registered its first shutout of the season.

Nashville's only hit was a clean first-inning double off the bat of Eli White.

The Missions scored four times in the second inning to chase Sounds starter Wes Benjamin.

Nashville's Ariel Jurado handcuffed the Missions in the opener as the Sounds pulled out a 3-1 win.

Zack Brown (0-2) permitted all three runs in the fifth inning, two on a homerun off the bat of Jose Trevino, who entered the game hitting .162 with one RBI.
