Nashville, TN -The Nashville Sounds failed to hang on to a 6-1 lead and dropped the series finale to the Tacoma Rainiers, 8-6, in front of 7,824 fans at First Tennessee Park Monday night.
Tacoma scored four runs in the seventh and three in the eighth to erase the deficit. It came after Nashville starter James Naile limited the Rainiers to just one run on five hits in six innings. The quality start was Naile’s team-leading sixth of the season.
Nashville built a lead thanks to a four-run bottom of the sixth. Leading 2-1 entering the frame, four consecutive hits by Beau Taylor, Anthony Garcia, Bruce Maxwell and Franklin Barreto extended the lead to 3-1. Jorge Mateo made it a 6-1 game when he cleared the bases with a three-run triple down the right field line.
