Sounds Lose Rain-Shortened Opener In Oklahoma City

Game Halted With Two Outs In The Bottom Of The Fifth

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The Nashville Sounds lost, 2-0, to the Oklahoma City RedHawks in a five-inning, rain-shortened opener of a four-game series on Tuesday evening at Chicasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

With two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning, the game went into a rain delay and was officially halted approximately later at 9:03pm, making it an official game.

The loss moved Nashville to 20-31 on the season, which has also dropped eight of nine to Oklahoma City.

RedHawks starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel (5-4) tossed five shutout innings while striking out three for the victory.

Nashville starter Brian Baker tossed three scoreless innings before Oklahoma City took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth. After Mike Hessman singled, Jimmy Paredes belted a two-out RBI double down the left field line.

Oklahoma City tacked on their other run in the fifth right before the rain delay. Former Sound Carlos Corporan was hit by a Baker fastball, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a Brad Snyder double.

Baker (1-3) gave up two runs on four hits with four strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings for the loss.

Left fielder Jordan Brown went 2-for-2 to extend his hitting streak to a season-high eight games.

The Sounds and RedHawks continue their series at 7:05 pm CT on Wednesday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Right-hander Seth McClung (1-4, 5.28) will toe the rubber for Nashville against Oklahoma City righty Brian Bass (NR).
