From the Notes
Dillard's Strikeout Watch: Tim Dillard added another strikeout Tuesday night to bring his season total to 13. He has 347 in his Nashville Sounds career and is 5 shy of tying Jamie Werly's all-time franchise record of 352. Dillard recorded his franchise-leading 40th win of the year in his productive effort (6 IP, 4 H, 0 R) against the Oklahoma City Dodgers on May 7.
Streaking Willie: With his two-run homer Saturday night, Willie Calhoun has hit safely in 12 consecutive games for the Sounds and currently owns the longest active streak in the Pacific Coast League. During the 12-game streak, he's hitting .353 (14-for-41) with 8 runs, 2 doubles, 5 home runs, 12 RBI and 11 walks.
Day Games: The remaining three games of the Nashville/Memphis series will be day games. Overall, the Sounds are 4-6 in day games. Nashville is hitting .238 in such games, with Eli White and Zack Granite excelling. White is hitting .370 in 8 games with 6 runs, 4 doubles, a triple, and a home run while Granite is hitting .344 in nine games with 7 runs and two doubles. Nashville's pitching staff has struggled, allowing a 7.20 ERA and a .301 batting average.
Walk the Line: Four Nashville Sounds' hitters recorded two walks Saturday night: Willie Calhoun, Matt Davidson, Andy Ibáñez and Patrick Wisdom. The Sounds had 9 total walks, one shy of there season-high from when they walked 10 times at Iowa on April 26. Memphis has walked the third-most batters in the Pacific Coast league at 158 bases on balls.
Hitmen: Last night, Phillips Valdez hit three Memphis hitters in the first three innings of the game. That now totals 11 hit batsmen against the Redbirds this season. In the series finale at First Tennessee Park, Valdez hit two batters. In game one of a doubleheader on May 5, the Sounds tied a Pacific Coast League record by hitting five batters, four by Yoel Espinal and one by Joe Kuzia.
