Nashville Sounds 10 at Memphis Redbirds 4
Adolis Garcia: 3-4
Edmundo Sosa: 2-4, HR, BB
Irving Lopez: 2-4, HR
Junior Fernandez: 3.1 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 5 Ks
Junior Fernandez has arrived in Memphis, and he didn’t take long to do exactly what he’d been doing in Palm Beach and Springfield.
Aside from that, there wasn’t much to smile about after Nashville scored eight runs between the second and third inning.
Memphis struck first in the game, with the first run coming when Edmundo Sosa scored because of a balk. Andrew Knizner immediately followed that with an RBI single. The Redbirds quickly fell into a 3-2 deficit after three Nashville runs in the top of the second but tied the game on an Irving Lopez home run in the bottom half.
Sosa led off the bottom of the third with a home run after Nashville scored five in the top half, and the scoring was dead from there. Nashville tacked on two more runs in the ninth.
Anthony Shew started with two innings and gave up three runs, five hits, no walks and struck out two.
Before Fernandez, Seth Elledge made his Memphis debut, which didn’t go so great. Elledge managed two outs and gave up five runs, six hits and two walks.
Fernandez, on the other hand, was great, as you can see from the above stat line.
Chris Beck followed by delivering two scoreless and Tommy Layne gave up the two ninth inning runs.
Memphis falls to 33-45. Game 2 of 4 with Nashville is Wednesday at 6:35.

Nolan Gorman: 1-4, HR
Angel Rondon: 5.1 IP, 2 R, 7 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks
Two runs in each of the first two innings was enough to give Palm Beach a lead that lasted for good.
Scott Hurst got things started with a two-run home run in the first inning. Nolan Gorman led off the second with his first Palm Beach home run, and Lars Nootbaar added another run later in the inning with an RBI double. Florida got a run in the third and sixth.
Angel Rondon (5-1) went 5 1⁄3 and gave up two runs, seven hits, one walk and struck out three. Patrick Dayton threw 2 2⁄3 scoreless and C.J. Saylor a perfect ninth with two strikeouts for his first save of the season.

Clinton LumberKings 4, Peoria Chiefs 2
Brendan Donavan: 2-4, 2B
Brandon Riley: 2-3
Kyle Leahy: 6 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 10 Ks
In a game that didn’t see scoring until the seventh inning, Clinton managed to pull away with four runs in the eighth.
Juan Yepez broke the scoreless tie with an RBI double in the seventh and came around on a Bryce Denton triple to give Peoria a 2-0 lead, though it was short lived after Clinton’s four-run eighth to seal the win.
Kyle Leahy returned to Peoria after a spot start with Palm Beach and picked up where he left off. Leahy’s scoreless inning streak in Peoria is up to 27 and he’s gone four straight starts without giving up a run with the last coming on May 23.
Cole Aker (0-3) pitched 1 1⁄3 and gave up the first three of four runs in the eighth. Evan Sisk pitched the remainder of the eighth and gave up the fourth run.
Peoria falls to 32-42. Game 2 of 4 with Clinton is Wednesday at 6:30.
