Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds used a walk-off suicide squeeze bunt from Boog Powell to defeat the Fresno Grizzlies 2-1 Thursday night in front of 8,551 fans at First Tennessee Park. The win clinched the Sounds’ three-game series against the Grizzlies.
The Sounds loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning and the game tied at one run apiece. Beau Taylor struck out and Anthony Garcia grounded into a fielder’s choice at the plate to leave it up to Powell to be the hero for the Sounds. Powell came through in an unconventional way. The speedy right-fielder bunted down the first base line and beat out the attempted glove flip from first baseman A.J. Reed as BJ Boyd crossed home plate for the game-winning run.
