Solid pitching and offensive efficiency leads Sounds to 4-3 victory Dillard
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.
Both teams managed eight hits apiece but the Sounds were more efficient in their delivery and thus eeked out a one run victory tonight.
