From the Notes

Tim Dillard: 36-year-old Tim Dillard starts for the Sounds tonight. The right-hander is 8-8 with a 4.61 ERA in 31 games (19 starts) in 2019. Dillard's 4.61 ERA is the seventh-lowest in the Pacific Coast League and the 140.2 innings he has thrown is second-most. His last time out was on August 21 in a start against Oklahoma City. He recorded his ninth quality start of the year in Nashville's 7-2 win. Dillard allowed 2 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks in 7.0 innings. Dillard is the Nashville Sounds all-time leader in innings pitched (697.1), wins (47), strikeouts (423), runs allowed (387), home runs allowed (61), walks (232) and games (240). In his career, Dillard has pitched in 73 big league games and 509 minor league games. He signed a minor-league free agent contract with the Texas Rangers on December 21, 2018.

Happy Birthday, Patrick Wisdom: On this date 28 years ago, Patrick Wisdom was born in Murrieta, California. In six career games on his birthday, Wisdom is hitting .444 (8-for-18) with 2 runs, 1 double, 1 home run, 1 RBI, 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. Wisdom played against Nashville on August 27, 2016 and went 2-for-4 with a solo homer off Dillon Overton in Memphis' 2-1 loss at AutoZone Park.

Ibáñez Gets to 30 Doubles: Infielder Andy Ibáñez recorded his 30th double of the season last night - far and away his career-high. The 30 doubles for Ibáñez is tied for 10th-most in the Pacific Coast League. Over the last 10 years, including 2019, Ibáñez is the 7th Sounds player to notch at least 30 doubles. The list includes: Joey Wendle - 42 in 2015, Taylor Green - 36 in 2011, Matt Olson - 34 in 2016, Ryan Roberts - 33 in 3015, Anthony Garcia - 31 in 2018, Joey Wendle - 31 in 2016. He needs 5 more doubles to crack Nashville's all-time single-season Top-10 list.

Trouble in Omaha: Through five of eight games the Sounds have played this year in Omaha, they have zero wins. In the five games, Nashville has been outscored 36-10 at Werner Park. Since the Sounds began playing games in Omaha in 1998, they have never not won at least one game each year.

I'm honored by this award but I wouldn't have done it without the great group of guys we had in Nashville this year. I'm so thankful that I got to call all of them teammates and friends! #SendIt

I got the chance to sit down with Ronald Guzman recently. Read the article to see what he's been working on that has his hitting back on track. #power
