Farmhand Of The Game:

Outfielder Billy Burns

(4 for 5 / Triple / GWRBI / 2 Stolen Bases)

Outfielder Billy Burns had a big day for Nashville on Tuesday, collecting 4 hits, including a 10th inning triple that drove in the winning run for the Sounds. Burns also swiped a pair of bases in the game. Shortstop Tyler Ladendorf had 3 hits and drove in a run in his first game for Nashville, while catcher Bryan Anderson and outfielder Alden Carrithers had a pair of hits apiece for the Sounds. Starter Chris Bassitt was in command early, holding Oklahoma City scoreless through the first 6 innings but was charged with 2 runs in the 7th. Bassitt ended up allowing 2 runs on just 3 hits while striking out 9 over 6 1/3 innings of work. Errors by third baseman Andy Parrino and first baseman Max Muncy combined with a pair of walks and a hit batter by LHP Eury De La Rosa enabled Oklahoma City to tie the game in the 7th. After Nashville took the lead again in the top of the 8th, RHP Chad Smith gave up a run in the bottom on the 9th to send the game to extra innings, where Billy Burns was able to drive in the decisive run in the 10th.

    60mph winds in Lancaster postponed the game… isn’t that pretty much the norm in Lancaster? 🙂
