What PCL team has won 8 of their last 10 games?  The same team just won 6 of 8 home games. The same team has the 3rd highest winning percentage (.575) in the league. The same is 11-6 on the road this year.

Figured it out yet? Need to buy a vowel?

It’s the Nashville Sounds of course. The Sounds? Yes.The Sounds are in first place in the PCL American North division.

The 2009 Sounds are 2317 (.575) through their first 40 games. The 2008 Sounds-version did not win their 23rd game until May 29th. The 2008 Sounds were 17-23 in their first 40 games.

Why the turn-around, literally?

How about these stats?

  1. Mike Burns is 6-0 (2.15 ERA) and he was not even expected to start for Nashville when the seaosn opened.
  2. Tim Dillard is 6-1 with a 2.66 ERA.
  3. Mat Gamel, before being called up to Milwaukee on May 14th, was in the top tier of every major offensive category in the PCL.
  4. The bull-pen has shut-down opponents in the month of May, recording a 1.62 ERA.
  5. The bull-pen has recorded 15 of 17 saves this season, a league-best.
  6. The Sounds are 2nd in the PCL with a 3.72 team ERA.
  7. Don Money turns in the line-up at home plate before every game.
