NASHVILLE, TN—Despite a solid start from pitcher Josh Lindblom, the Nashville Sounds fell short to the Columbus Clippers, 6-2, on Wednesday night at the First Horizon Park. The Clippers even 6-game series to one win each now.
The Sounds put up a late rally in the 7th and 8th innings. Presented with a bases-loaded situation and one out, the Sounds forced home just one run after Columbus catcher Wilson Ramos made a passed-ball error. Nashville stranded three baserunners to end the 7th inning.
In the bottom of the 8th inning, Weston Wilson hit a solo home run to cut Columbus' lead to just one run, 3-2. It was Wilson's 15th home run of the season. But that was Nashville's last run scored for the game as they fail to take the lead in the later part of the game.
The Clippers put out a strong offensive start against the Sounds. They took the lead in the first inning with an RBI single from Wilson Ramos, making the score 1-0. Columbus then added another score in the 3rd and 4th innings, and Nashville trailed, 3-0, early in the game. They then added another 3 runs in the top of the 9th after Nashville put a strong effort to cut their lead.
Josh Lindblom had a quality start from the mound. Despite allowing 3 runs with only 2 earned, the right-handed pitcher went 6 innings, struck out 7 batters, and allowed 7 hits.
The third game of the 6-game-series against the Columbus Clippers is scheduled for Thursday night at First Horizon Park. The Sounds' right-handed pitcher Thomas Jankins (1-5, 6.63 ERA) will start against the Clippers' right-handed pitcher Heath Fillmyer (1-3, 6.81 ERA).
