Pitcher Raul Alcantara

(6 2/3 IP / 6 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 6 K / Win)

RHP Raul Alcantara turned in his third straight outstanding start for the Sounds on Tuesday, allowing just 1 earned run while striking out 6 over 6 2/3 innings to earn his 2nd win for Nashville. It was the first earned run the 23-year-old has allowed in his three starts since joining the Sounds, and he’s failed to issue a single walk in any of those outings. Third baseman Colin Walsh singled, walked and drove in 2 runs, while catcher Matt McBride and shortstop Chad Pinder had a pair of hits apiece to help the Sounds win their fourth straight on Tuesday. And with Josh Reddick dealt to the Dodgers on Monday, Tyler Ladendorf was recalled by Oakland, while the A’s activated RHP Andrew Triggs from the disabled list and optioned RHP J.B. Wendelken back to Nashville. Meanwhile, RHP Jharel Cotton, the current Pacific Coast League strikeout leader who was acquired from the Dodgers, is scheduled to make his debut for the Sounds on Thursday.
