Isotopes take double header from Sounds at Greer

August 3, 2009

The Nashville Sounds (58-51) lost a twi-night double header against the Alburquerque Isotopes tonight at Greer stadium. Game one ended in a 4-1 loss as the Sounds could only manage one hit against the Isotopes pitching.  Game two was not much better.  Nashville lost that one – in extra innings – by a score of 2-1. Nashville is barely still in first place in the American North division, nursing a half-game lead over Memphis.

Nashville’s sole hit in game one was provided by Johnny Raburn. The Sounds plated one runner (of six) in scoring position.  Sam Narron started for the Sounds and took the loss (1-4). Charlie Haeger started for the Isotopes in game one and threw a one-hitter through six innings to go 11-6 on the year.

Nashville 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 3
W: Charlie Haeger (11-6); L: Sam Narron (1-4); SV: Scott Strickland (24)

Game two was more exciting for a couple reasons.  It was a one-run margin for the final score. It went into extra innings. And the Sounds failed to plate the tying run in the bottom of the eighth (extra inning) when Joe Koshansky failed to slide at home plate after Mat Gamel provided the late-game heroics with an almost certain game-tying single to right.

    I couldn’t believe Money waved Koshanski home. Joe isn’t exactly a speed demon. Combined with the fact that the hit was very shallow to right field, I didn’t think Joe had a chance. Then again, I thought Joe was out Friday night when he did his “hook slide” (as Chuck called it) around the catcher’s tag.
