Erick Almonte

Erick Almonte’s 2-for-5 (4-RBI) led the spiraling Nashville Sounds to victory tonight to halt a season-high seven game slide against Albuquerque.  Almonte has been hitting solidly all year, mostly in a pinch hit role, and continued his hot bat in the starting position tonight at 1B. He slammed his first HR of the season [LISTEN].

J.J. Hardy also supplied some firepower by going 3-for-5. Adam Heether went 2-for-4 and hit his 14th homer. Nashville eeked out the victory even though they were only 2-for-10 with RISP.

It was Joe Koshansky’s two out pinch hit home run (21) that provided the eventual game-winning run for the Sounds.

Chase Wright took the win (W, 8-7) by going six strong innings, yielding three runs, on six hits, walking two. Chris Smith earned his 15th save of the season.

Game did not play. Katin was 0-for-3. Arlis caught and went 0-for-3. The Sounds were 12-for-38 at the plate tonight.
