Sounds of the Game – June 6, 2009

The Moon overhead last night looked like a baseball floating above the scoreboard.

The sounds of the game last night at historic Greer Stadium were void of one typical for the previous three: the sound of a bat hitting a ball.  Nashville had one measely hit in the fourth and did not have another until the 9th inning. Manager Don Money was visually (and audibly) distressed last night as his Sounds left 8 runners on base and were a pathetic 0-for-11 with RISP.

The Sounds are now 31-25 but still remain atop the American North division in the PCL, 2.5 games ahead of division-rival Memphis who are on a three-game slide.

Iowa managed to squeeze out nine hits last night, several of them dinkers, but only scored two runs. But that was enough to silence a large crowd at Greer who witnessed the Sound’s 3-game win steak end.

There was a new sound of the game almost 8,000 Nashville fans experienced last night; the sound of newly promoted LHP Chris Cody throwing the ball into the mitt of Angel Salome.  Inspite of first-game jitters, Cody pitched solidly. Iowa plated two runners (1 earned), yielded eight hits but showed his characteristic plate-control only walking one Cubbie.

No doubt Don Money heard some grumbling comments late last night – perhaps early this morning – as his Sounds boarded a late-night flight or early-morning flight to Omaha where Nashville will play four games three days against the Omaha Royals. The O-Royals are on a four-game slide as the hotter Sounds invade Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha tonight at 7:05pm.

Listen to 3B Adam Heether rob Iowa’s Dave Macias of an extra-base hit last night [LISTEN].
