Sounds Sink Missions
NASHVILLE - The Sounds scored four times in the fourth inning against Bubba Derby and cruised to a 7-3 win at First Tennessee Park in the penultimate game of the season.
Corey Ray slugged a two-run homer and also singled and scored, while Blake Allemand doubled and tripled home a run for the Missions. Allemand's triple was the club's first since Trent Grisham hit for the cycle on July 30. They had been the only minor club without a three-bagger since.
Derby was the victim of a couple of softly hit singles in the fourth inning, but he also gave up a double to former Brewer Jett Bandy on a ball that narrowly missed going over the fence, and a three-run homerun off the bat of Christian Lopes.
The loss was the Missions 14th in the last 17 road games.
Both clubs will finish the season on Monday afternoon.
TBD vs. LH Wes Benjamin (7-6) 12:05 PM
