Nashville, Tn — The Nashville Sounds used a solid pitching performance from Brett Anderson and timely hitting to dispatch the New Orleans Baby Cakes, 4-2, Wednesday night in front of 6,063 fans at First Tennessee Park.
Anderson tossed six innings and allowed two runs in his first win of the season. The southpaw allowed a pair of runs in the second inning, then went on cruise control the rest of the night. Anderson ended the second by getting Magneuris Sierra to bounce into a fielder’s choice. It started a streak of 13 consecutive retired batters.
Denver, Co — The Nashville Predators advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a convincing win over the pesky Colorado Avalanche, 5-0. The victory sets up a premier showdown with the Winnipeg Jets, who experts are calling the series to watch.

Austin Watson made it 2-0 at 10:19 of the first with a wicked wrister after an assist from Colton Sissons and Nick Bonino. The line of Watson, Sissons and Bonino was the highlight of the lineup in this game tonight.

PAPILLION, Nebraska – The Nashville Sounds offense was unable to find a groove Saturday night as they were defeated 6-2 in their series opener against the Omaha Storm Chasers.
One night after not registering a base hit until the sixth inning Friday night, the Sounds wasted no time getting into the hit column Saturday night. Jorge Mateo lined a base hit to lead off the game and came around to score on Dustin Fowler’s sacrifice fly to spot James Naile with a 1-0 lead. Naile, however was unable to maintain the advantage as he yielded a two-run double from Frank Schwindel with two outs in the first inning. The runs snapped an 18.1 scoreless innings streak to begin the season for Naile.

But Nashville has Filip Forsberg.
