Alcides Escobar was 3 for 4 in game one.

The Nashville Sounds (32-26) came from behind a 4-0 deficit to beat the Omaha Royals (24-33) today in game one of a double-header by a score of 8-6. R.J. Swindle (1-0) gained his first victory of the season and Victor Marte (0-2) absorbed the loss. Dave Johnson earned his 3rd save.

Game summary:

Things did not start so well for Nashville. Starter Matt Ginter (who had a rough outing) allowed Omaha to plate four runs in the first inning.  He allowed five hits (3 for extra bases) and four runs. 4-0 Omaha.

Not to be outdone, the Nashville offense finally came alive – after a two game near silence – in their half of the 3rd, scoring four runs themselves. With two outs and Almonte on 1st, Escobar hit a double (15) to left scoring Almonte. Salome followed with an RBI single of Escobar. Joe Koshansky then slammed his 11th home run, a two-bagger, to tie the score 4-4.

Omaha took a 6-4 lead in the fourth on two solo homers: one by Aldridge (6) and another by Lisson (4).  6-4 Omaha.

Nashville would not give up. An RBI triple by Bourgeois (2) and an RBI single by Escobar tied the score again. It could have been worse though. Katin struckout swinging with bases loaded to end the inning. 6-6 tie.

The Sounds plated two more runners in the top of the sixth to take the final lead. With two outs again, Gillespie hit a double (8) to left. Bourgeois’s triple(2) to right scored Gillespie, the winning run. Escobar added an insurance run by singling Bourgeois home. Final score 8-6.
