Nashville, TN -The Nashville Sounds came out on the wrong end of a pitcher’s duel with the Tacoma Rainiers in front of 10,117 fans at First Tennessee Park Saturday night. The Sounds were shutout by Tacoma 1-0 as both pitching staffs kept the opposing offenses at bay.
Nashville’s Edwin Jackson shined in his Sounds debut but it was not enough as Tacoma’s Rob Whalen had his best performance of the season. Jackson notched his seventh quality start of the season after six with Triple-A Syracuse as he allowed just one lone run on three hits in his six innings of work. He walked three and fanned seven. Whalen meanwhile yielded just two infield singles in six innings of shutout baseball and recorded an out against the final 12 batters he faced.
