Nashville Sounds       7

Albuquerque Isotopes  5

WP – Detwiler 1-0 / 1.80

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Ross Detwiler

(5 IP / 3 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 2 K / Win)

RHP Jesse Hahn tossed 1 scoreless inning in a shortened start for the Sounds. It’s assumed that Hahn is likely to make the start for the A’s on Sunday. He was followed on the mound by LHP Ross Detwiler, who was recently acquired from the Indians. The 30-year-old southpaw allowed just 1 run on 3 hits over 5 innings of work to earn the win in his first appearance for the Sounds, while RHP Eduard Santos got the final out in the 9th to notch his 3rd save for Nashville. Center fielder Billy Burns had 3 hits, including a double, stole a base and drove in a pair, while catcher Bruce Maxwell and second baseman Joey Wendle both singled and doubled in the win. In roster news, the A’s optioned LHP Dillon Overton back to Nashville and recalled infielder Arismendy Alcantara, while RHP Raul Alcantara was reassigned to the Sounds, and LHP Brandon Mann returned to the RockHounds on Wednesday.
