First baseman Rangel Ravelo busted out of a 1 for 21 slump in a big way to help lead the Sounds to victory on Tuesday night. Ravelo ripped a 2-run homer to knock in the go-ahead run for Nashville in the 4th inning, doubled in another run in the 6th, and singled but was left stranded in the 8th. Third baseman Max Muncy led off the 4th inning with his 6th home run to put the Sounds on the board, while right fielder Matt Olson doubled home a pair of runs to tie the game later in the same inning. RHP Henderson Alvarez, making what’s expected to be his second to last rehab start, allowed 3 runs on 4 hits while walking 1 and striking out 3 over 4 innings of work. He threw a total of 79 pitches, 50 for strikes and 29 for balls. RHP Aaron Kurcz, who was promoted to Nashville earlier in the day from Midland, picked up the win despite giving up 2 runs in 2 innings of relief, while RHP Tucker Healy tossed a scoreless 9th for his 1st save. In addition to Kurcz, catcher Bryan Anderson also rejoined to Sounds, while RHP J.B. Wendelken was optioned back to Nashville from Oakland, and the A’s added utility man Tyler Ladendorf and relievers Andrew Triggs and Daniel Coulombe. Sounds starter Eric Surkamp is expected to officially rejoin the A’s roster on Wednesday.
