4,050 fans endured the heat today at historic Greer Stadium in Nashville to see ace Tim Dillard earn his seventh victory of the year, and to see Brendan Katin’s bat scorch the ball with virtually every swing. Nashville (28-24) defeated Omaha (23-28) by a score of 8-4.

Katin was 3 for 4 today, with two home runs (10) and five RBIs. He went 5 for 13 for the series, four home runs, eight RBIs and 5 runs.
