From the Notes

Winding Down: The Sounds wrap up their road schedule tonight as the 2018 season winds down to a close. On the season, Nashville is 31-38 away from First Tennessee Park. Nashville is batting .271 on the road compared to .248 at home but the pitching staff has boasted a 2.83 ERA at First Tennessee Park compared to a 5.13 mark on the road.

Hits Only: Last night was just the third time this season the Sounds have lost a game in which the pitching staff did not walk any batters. The Sounds are 12-3 when they don't walk a batter in a game. However, the Sounds have lost the last two game in which they have not issued any free passes. They were shutout 2-0 in Round Rock on August 21 and 2-0 last night in New Orleans. Nashville has walked 358 batters this season - fewest in the Pacific Coast League.

Work Horses: The Sounds are one of two teams in the Pacific Coast League with two pitchers who have compiled 130.0 or more innings pitched. Tonight's starter James Naile has logged 130.0 innings while Eric Jokisch has accumulated 141.2. Nashville shares that distinction with Reno. Jake Buchanan (152.2) and Taylor Clarke (147.0) have done so for the Aces.

Boog Finding His Groove: After a career-long 0-for-22 skid at the plate last week, Boog Powell has now hit safely in six straight games. During the modest streak Powell is batting .273 (6-for-22) with 4 runs, 2 RBI, and 1 double.
