Storm Chasers and Sounds split series

Storm Chasers and Sounds split series

Storm Chasers first baseman Erich Weiss homered and drove in three runs, however Sounds third basemanMatt Davidson clubbed a longball while brought home two runs and starting pitcher Seth Maness tossed a quality outing in Nashville’s 8-4 win over Omaha in front of 6,533 fans on Thursday evening at Werner Park.

The Sounds surged ahead with a five-run opening frame, capped by Davidson’s two-run blast to left. Following a single tally in the third, Nashville extended that margin to eight courtesy of RBI singles by RFPreston Beck and CF Zack Granite in the fifth.

After RF Jorge Bonifacio’s run-scoring double broke the Sounds’ shutout hopes in the sixth, Weiss brought Bonifacio across with a single to center to make it 8-2. Weiss would later launch a two-run shot to right to narrow the deficit to four.

Granite (3-5, R, RBI) tallied a game-high three knocks, with Davidson (2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI) and LF Patrick Wisdom(2-5, R, 2 RBI) adding two hits apiece. Weiss (2-4, R, HR, 3 RBI) and Bonifacio (2-4, R, 2 2B, RBI) each recorded multi-hit efforts for Omaha.

Maness (6.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R< 2 ER, BB, 3 K) earned the win to improve to 8-4, while relievers Jeffrey Springs (1.0 IP, K) and David Carpenter (1.0 IP) each fired shutout frames of support. Omaha starter Brian Flynn (6.0 IP, 11 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 4 K) suffered the defeat.

The Storm Chasers are set to begin their final series of the 2019 season at Werner Park, a four-game set versus the Round Rock Express on Friday, August 30. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm CT.
