Nashville Sounds News Release


Jacksonville, Fla. - After they fell behind early, the Nashville Sounds (22-23) could not rally and lost 7-3 to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (19-26) in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at 121 Financial Ballpark.

Evan McKendry (0-3) made his return from the injured list, pitching in his first game since April 11 at Memphis. He struggled in his outing, allowing four hits, two earned runs, and was lifted with only one out recorded. Darrell Thompson entered with traffic on the bases and escaped the inning without any further damage.

The Sounds got on the board in the fifth inning courtesy of a solo home run by Vinny Capra to cut the Jumbo Shrimp advantage to 2-1. It was his third home run of the season and extended his hitting streak to six games.

Tyler Woessner was solid in long relief, allowing one earned run across 3.2 innings of work. Woessner worked out of trouble in the third inning thanks to a heads-up play by Francisco Mejía to catch a runner between third and home. In his last two outings, he has allowed two earned runs in 9.2 innings with 10 strikeouts.

Down 6-1 entering the eighth inning, Nashville rallied with a double by Oliver Dunn , an RBI single by Tyler Black and an RBI triple by Isaac Collins to cut Jacksonville's lead to 6-3. But a Wes Clarke flyout would end the frame.

The Sounds return home to face the Charlotte Knights after concluding a 12-game road trip. Nashville will send right-hander Tobias Myers (1-1, 1.45) to the mound in the series opener. He will face off against right-hander Nick Nastrini (0-4, 5.83) for Charlotte. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. at First Horizon Park on Tuesday.
