Sounds Shut Down Chihuahuas 7-3 in Nashville

The Nashville Sounds scored seven unanswered runs late in Saturday’s game and beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 7-3. After a hot streak last road trip in Salt Lake, the Chihuahuas have dropped five of their last six games.

The Chihuahuas struck four consecutive hits in the top of the first inning, including a two-run double by Rafael Ortega. One inning later, Franchy Cordero’s RBI groundout made it 3-0 El Paso. The Sounds brought in two runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and four two-out runs in the eighth to go ahead 7-3.

Carlos Asuaje, Nick Buss and Ortega all had two hits for the Chihuahuas.

Saturday was the first loss the Chihuahuas ever sustained in Nashville, as the team was 4-0 in Music City entering this series.
