The Nashville Sounds (15-13) failed to hold onto a one-run lead in the eighth inning and eventually fell 5-3 to the St. Paul Saints on Wednesday night at CHS Field.
Holding a 3-2 advantage entering the bottom of the eighth, the Saints would get back-to-back baserunners to reach before doubling then plating another on a Sounds error to take a 5-3 lead. Though Isaac Collins would reach to start the ninth, Nashville failed to mount a last-ditch rally as St. Paul evened the series.
Starter Janson Junk (2-1, 1.31) gets the nod for Nashville in tomorrow night’s contest. Left-hander Brent Headrick (0-0, 6.00) will get the start for the Saints. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:37 p.m. from CHS Field.
