Newly promoted Joshua Butler (from Advanced-A Brevard County) pitches stellarly in 2-1 loss for Nashville Sounds.

May 30, 2009

The Nashville Sounds (27-24) lost the second game of tonight’s double header to the Omaha Royals (23-27) but retain the first-place spot in the American North as the Memphis Redbirds also split a double header tonight.

Joshua Butler pitched in his first Triple-A game tonight.

The bright spot in this tough loss was that Joshua Butler, just called up from Advanced-A Brevard County, pitched extremely well in his Triple-A debut. Butler (who was 6-0 with a 2.47 ERA) pitched six complete innings, yielded just three hits and two runs. The only bad pitch he threw was a 2-run home run by .188 hitter Scott Thorman in the 5th.

The Nashville Sounds just might have a very promising prospect in Joshua Butler who throws right and knows how to work the strike-zone. His change-up and breaking ball had Royals hitters missing badly as the young righthander struck out four batters but did not walk a single batter.

Yabuta (1-1) – in relief for Omaha – earned his first win of the season.
