Sounds win suspended game 5-3, Cody takes win

July 4, 2009

The Nashville Sounds (47-36) defeated the Alburquerque Isotopes (42-20) by a score of 5-3 Monday evening as the two teams resumed the postponed game from Saturday. With two outs in the top of the 4th Saturday, the game was suspended due to torrential downpour.  The Isotopes clearly had some momentum building as they scored twice in the 4th and had another runner on first as Nashville starter Tim Dillard seemed to be vulnerable. Then the rains came. And came.  And would not leave.  9,282 fans left Greer wet and disappointed Saturday afternoon.

But around 2,500 fans showed back up Monday evening, after Sunday’s baseball was postoned as well, to watch the Sounds and Isotopes finally complete the suspended Saturday-game.

LHP Chris Cody assumed the mound for Nashville in the top of the 4th against Alburquerque as the game re-started. Cody worked solidly going 4.1 innings, giving up just one hit, on one run, one walk, striking out four, on his way to notching his (w, 3-3) third victory of the season.

Game summary

Nashville took a one-run lead in the bottom of the third on an Iribarren RBI-triple (4) scoring Gillespie who singled to center in pouring down rain.  1-0 Sounds.

Adam Heether

The Isotopes took the lead in the top of the fourth on a sac-fly and an RBI-single by Gonzalez; then the rain-delay and eventual postponement of the contest at 8:24PM.  2-1 Isotopes.

Nashville tied the game 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI-single by Iribarren, scoring Cody from 3rd. 2-2 tie.

The Sounds then plated two more runners in the sixth to take the lead 4-2, which they would never relent.  Katin led-off the inning with a single to right, followed by a Koshanky-single to center.  Up stepped Adam Heether who knocked a tw0-run RBI double (14) to left.  4-2 Sounds.

Both teams plated one more runner in the eighth. Nashville’s was due to Heether’s ninth long-ball of the season. Adam would finish 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs on the night.

Final score: 5-3 Sounds.

Though pitching a little rocky in the ninth, Ryan Houston did record his 4th save of the year.
