Nashville’s Hector Gomez Belts Two Homers in Loss; Leon Debuts
Nashville, TN – Despite a pair of home runs from Sounds shortstop Hector Gomez, the first-place Nashville Sounds (32-29) dropped their series opener against the Memphis Redbirds on Thursday night at AutoZone Park by a 7-4 final margin.
Trailing 3-0, Nashville leveled the game in the top of the fifth with a pair of two-out extra-base knocks, but Memphis followed with three runs of their own in the inning, which proved to be the difference.
Nashville, Tn – Junior Tyler Beede was selected 14th overall by San Francisco in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft to become the 12th Commodore in history to be a first round pick in the June draft.
For Beede, it marks the second time in three years the Auburn, Mass. native has been selected in the first round of the draft after being the 21st overall selection in 2011 by Toronto out of high school.
The right-hander joins a long list of Commodores to be taken in the first round during the Tim Corbin era, including David Price, Pedro Alvarez and Sonny Gray. Beede is the seventh Vanderbilt pitcher selected in the first round since 2004 and eighth in history. «Read the rest of this article»
Nashville, Tn – Tennessee State defensive end Anthony Bass was named to the 2014 College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) watch list.
The initial watch list includes 38 defensive linemen, vying for the top defensive end and defensive tackle awards in the Football Championship Subdivision. All players are eligible for awards at their respective positions; players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration.

Nashville, Tn – Whatever Tim Corbin told his Vanderbilt Commodores after their embarrassing exit from the SEC Baseball Tournament must have “clicked” because now Vanderbilt is playing in the team’s fourth Super Regional out of the last five years, having just won the NCAA Nashville Regional last weekend.
The Stanford Cardinal will be in the Music City beginning Friday and the Commodores are playing some good baseball.
Last season the Commodores dropped two games to Louisville, but clinched the 2011 Super Regional with two straight wins over Oregon State.
Let’s summarize what’s happened through roughly a third of the Braves season. I bet I can do this in a paragraph.
Everyone got hurt early. Everyone that wasn’t hurt didn’t hit very well. Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang were better than expected. Tommy La Stella and Shae Simmons showed up and stole Dan Uggla’s job (true) and David Carpenter’s job (potentially coming true, and not a knock on Carpenter at all).
Atlanta went 16-17 against teams with winning records. Chris Johnson re-entered orbit after an exceptional 2013. And BJ Upton emerged from the worst year anyone anywhere has ever had to become merely not very good this season.
