Anatomy of a seven-game slide?

August 23, 2009

It almost could not be worse.

The Nashville Sounds (65-63) are suffering a seven-game slide that has them 2.5 games behind division leading Memphis Redbirds (67-60). With just 16 games remaining, only four of them home games, it appears Nashville will be hard-pressed to not slip into third place in their division before the season ends.

No one is playing worse baseball in the Pacific Coast League than Nashville right now.

Here’s the anatomy of the current-worst team in the PCL:

  • Lost seven-straight games (not including today’s game).
  • Won only two of last eight, lost ten of last 14.
  • During last seven-game loss:
    • Combined 13-for58 with RISP (.224).
    • Gave up 57 runs (8.1 game)
    • Scored only 27 runs (3.8 game)
  • Combined team hitting of 24-for-127 or just .188

Omnious clouds formed on Aug 17th vs Fresno that portended a really horrible next six games for Nashville.
