LHP Dillon Overton had a shaky start for the Sounds, allowing 5 runs over 5 innings of work to suffer the loss on Thursday. RHPs Andres Avila, Carlos Navas and Angel Castro each tossed a scoreless inning in relief for Nashville. First baseman Matt Olson had 2 hits, including an RBI single in the top of the 1st inning to give his team an early edge, but the Sounds wouldn’t score again until right fielder B.J. Boyd singled in a run with two outs in the top of the 9th. Shortstop Franklin Barreto walked, doubled and scored a run in the loss. And with the best-of-five series now tied 1-1, the action moves to Nashville on Friday.
