Center fielder Jaycob Brugman’s hot bat helped the Sounds win on Sunday. Brugman had 3 hits, including a double, walked, scored 3 times and drove in the game-winning run in the 9th inning for Nashville. With two men on and the game tied in the top of the 9th, Brugman singled to bring home left fielder Colin Walsh for the winning run. Second baseman Joey Wendle also came around to score and Brugman ended up making it all the way to third with the help of an error by left fielder James Ramsey. Brugman later came in to score the third run of the inning on shortstop Arismendy Alcantara’s sacrifice fly. And Brugman has now gone 11 for 17 with 5 doubles, a home run and 8 RBIs over his last 4 games for the Sounds. First baseman Ryon Healy hit a 3-run homer in the 1st to give Nashville an early lead and then drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly in the 8th. Starter Chris Smith allowed 4 runs over 6 innings of work, while RHP Tucker Healy picked up the win after pitching a perfect 8th, and RHP Andrew Triggs got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 2nd save for Nashville. In other news, recent Sounds reliever R.J. Alvarez was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
