It's the second career All-Star Game selection for Carpenter who was named a PCL All-Star with Oklahoma City in 2011. It's the third career All-Star Game selection for Maness. He was named a Florida State League All-Star with Palm Beach in 2012 and a New York-Penn League All-Star with Batavia in 2011.

The New Guys vs. Arauz: Memphis starter Harold Arauz has faced two current Nashville Sounds this year - Christian Lopes and Juremi Profar. Lopes is 2-for-3 with a triple and Profar is 2-for-5 with 3 runs scored, 1 RBI and 1 walk.

18 Hit Attack: Nashville's 18 hits last night were a season-high, surpassing the previous best of 16. The Sounds had 16 hits on June 4 at Reno, May 29 vs. Round Rock and May 26 vs. Round Rock.

Granite's Big Night: Outfielder Zack Granite matched a season and career-high with 4 hits last night. It's the second time Granite has had 4 hits in a game this year and the fifth time of his career. It's also the fourth time a Sounds player has had 4 hits in a game this year (Carlos Tocci and Hunter Cole).
