Solid pitching and offensive efficiency leads Sounds to 4-3 victory Dillard

Sounds Baseball by you.

Erick Almonte (#13) went 2 for 4 on April 13th against the Red Hawks, and scored the eventual winning run in the bottom of the fourth, as the Sounds won a 4-3 decision against the Oklahoma City Redhawks at Greer Stadium.

The Sounds posted a solid victory tonight against the Oklahoma City Red Hawks in a 4-3 decision with a sparse crowd of just 1,253 fans at Greer Stadium. Those that stayed through the 30 minute rain delay were treated to the Sound’s second victory in five games this year.

Sound’s pitcher Tim Dillard (1-0) turned in a very fine performance tonight, pitching five innings and giving up just two runs (one earned). He walked two and struck out three.

Sound’s relievers were stellar tonight. Smith worked two innings and only surrendered one while giving up 3 hits. Narveson notched his first save of the season and was nearly flawless in his two innings of work; giving up no hits or runs, while walking just one and striking out four Red Hawk’s batters.

Tonight’s heavy lumber came from Mat Gamel (1-2, a HR and 2 RBIs) and Hernan Irabarren (1-3, 2 RBIs). Gamel now has two homers and ten RBIs for the season.

Both teams managed eight hits apiece but the Sounds were more efficient in their delivery and thus eeked out a one run victory tonight.
