(Double / 2 RBIs)

Outfielder Kent Matthes doubled in a pair of runs with 2 outs in the bottom of the 1st to give the Sounds all the runs they would need to prevail on Sunday. Nashville tallied just 3 other hits in the game but managed to draw a total of 7 walks. First baseman Max Muncy, third baseman Tyler Ladendorf and outfielder Billy Burns all singled and walked for the Sounds. RHP Chris Bassitt was scheduled to start, but RHP Fernando Rodriguez took the ball to begin the game with Bassitt following for an extended stint in relief. Rodriguez allowed 1 run over 2 1/3 innings, while Bassitt threw 4 2/3 shutout innings to earn the win. LHP Eury De La Rosa tossed a scoreless 8th, and RHP Ryan Cook pitched a perfect 9th to pick up his 1st save for the Sounds.
