First baseman Rangel Ravelo singled and tripled in a pair of runs in the top of the 1st, while second baseman Joey Wendle singled, tripled in a run in the 2nd, doubled in a run in the 9th and scored 3 times. Designated hitter Ryan Roberts walked twice and hit his 11th home run in the top of the 4th, and outfielder Jason Pridie had a pair of hits and drove in 3 runs for the Sounds. With Mills’ promotion to Oakland, RHP Arnold Leon was optioned back to Nashville, RHP Taylor Thompson was designated for assignment, LHP Jim Fuller was activated from the disabled list and RHP Kris Hall was returned to the RockHounds.
