Sounds’ Taylor Jungmann Earns First Triple-A Victory

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The first-place Nashville Sounds (28-26) picked up a 7-2 victory over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Wednesday night at Greer Stadium behind a charged-up offense and Taylor Jungmann’s quality start.

The Sounds offense got off to a hot start, plating four runs on six singles in the first inning to snap a stretch of 18 1/3 scoreless frames.

Outfielder Sean Halton recorded the third single in the inning to score Hector Gomez for the Sounds initial 1-0 lead. Matt Pagnozzi, Taylor Green and Kevin Mattison each followed with two-out RBI singles into centerfield for the 4-0 Nashville advantage.

The Sounds plated two more runs in the home half of the second inning on Hunter Morris’ sacrifice fly and a wild pitch from Sky Sox starting pitcher Yohan Flande (1-7).

Pinch hitter Hainley Statia connected for a double to lead off the 6th before scoring on a double from Pete Orr. Statia’s two-bagger improves his pinch-hit average to .571 (4-for-7) for the season.

Each of Nashville’s batters, minus reliever Kyle Heckathorn, helped contribute for Nashville’s 14 hits. Orr, Gomez, Caleb Gindl and Halton finished with multi-hit appearances.

In his first Triple-A start, Jungmann (1-1) picked up the win, holding Colorado Springs to one run on four hits over six innings of work. His lone blemish came in the 6th inning, allowing a solo home run to outfielder Kyle Parker, the Colorado Rockies’ No. 4-rated prospect.

The 24-year-old earned his first Triple-A win with the quality start. He now holds a 1.35 ERA in the month of May, spanning four starts with Huntsville and two appearances, one start, with Nashville.

Rehabbing Milwaukee Brewers lefty Tom Gorzelanny entered in relief behind Jungmann in the 7th inning. In his second appearance for Nashville, the southpaw retired the side using only eight pitches, firing five for strikes.

Heckathorn also saw work out of the ‘pen for Nashville, allowing one run in the 8th inning on one hit. Pinch hitter Angelys Nina hit a triple to centerfield and scored on Jason Pridie’s groundout.

Sounds batters went 6-for-13 with runners in scoring position after hitting .103 (4-for-39) in their previous six games.

The Sounds will play game three against Colorado Springs on Thursday at 7:05pm. LHP Brad Mills (3-0, 2.02) takes the hill for Nashville, opposite RHP Christian Bergman (3-3, 3.92). Broadcaster Jeff Hem has the call on 102.5 The Game.
