Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds and Tacoma Rainiers exchanged punches late with Tacoma issuing the final blow to defeat the Sounds 5-3 Sunday night at First Tennessee Park.
With the Sounds on top 1-0 and the pitching staff seemingly cruising, the Rainiers pulled out a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning. Ian Miller singled with one out in the frame off Jeremy Bleich and swiped second base.
Raul Alcantara then replaced Bleich to face John Andreoli whom he promptly walked. Two batters later Mejias-Brean served a hit into shallow centerfield. An onrushing BJ Boyd made a sliding attempt at a catch but the ball skipped past him allowing both Andreoli and Miller to score and Mejias-Brean to reach third base.
