Though he ended up suffering his 6th loss for the Sounds on Friday, RHP Jesse Hahn looked strong throughout most of the game. The 27-year-old threw 6 2/3 shutout innings before surrendering a 3-run homer with two outs in the 7th inning to take the loss. RHP Eduard Santos then followed with 2 scoreless innings in relief. Shortstop Chad Pinder had two hits, including an RBI triple to put the Sounds on the board in the bottom of the 1st. Then, down by a run in the 8th, Nashville loaded the bases with no outs on three consecutive singles but failed to push the tying run across the plate. The Sounds are now set to start a 12-game road trip in New Orleans on Saturday.

Third baseman Matt Chapman homered for the second straight night, ripping his league-leading 24th round-tripper to put the RockHounds on the board in the 6th inning. He also singled in the 1st and walked and came around to score in the top of the 9th, while designated hitter Viosergy Rosa doubled in both the tying and winning run in the 9th to help the RockHounds win their fourth straight on Thursday. RHP Lou Trivino tossed a scoreless 8th to pick up the win, while RHP Bobby Wahl got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 9th save for Midland.

Whether it’s due to Ryon Healy’s recent promotion to Oakland or something in the water in El Paso, a number of Nashville’s position players have appeared to be pretty inspired at the plate lately. And no one has been hotter than catcher Bruce Maxwell. The backstop had a career day on Saturday, collecting 5 hits, including a pair of home runs, while driving in 6 runs for the Sounds. And Maxwell is now 10 for 14 with 4 home runs and 10 RBIs in the first three games of Nashville’s four-game series in El Paso.
