Des Moines, IA – Before Chris Smith took to the mound for the Sounds Friday night he was spotted seven runs. The Sounds would then cruise to a 12-3 win to take game two of a four-game series against the Iowa Cubs.
Nashville erupted for seven runs on nine hits in the top of the first inning to give the 36-year-old right-hander a 7-0 lead over the I-Cubs. Smith (3-2, 3.35) followed up Michael Brady’s quality start Thursday night with one of his own.
He lasted six innings and matched a season-high by fanning eight I-Cubs. Iowa scattered three hits across the first three innings against Smith but he retired the final ten batters he faced en route to the 18th quality start of the season for Sounds pitchers.
