NASHVILLE – Luke Voit, Jon Singleton and Alex Jackson each hit a home run on the night, but the Nashville Sounds (24-23) were pummeled 12-5 by the Iowa Cubs on Thursday night at First Horizon Park.
As a whole, the Sounds pitching staff had a night to forget, with all three hurlers being charged for at least a couple of earned runs. Robert Gasser (2-1) took the loss, allowing 10 hits and seven runs (5 ER) in 4.0 innings in the start. Ryan Middendorf was charged with two runs (all earned) in his two innings on the mound, while Robert Stock gave up three scores over the final three innings.
Left-hander Thomas Pannone (1-0, 2.66) will get the ball for Nashville tomorrow. Iowa’s starter is still to be determined. The first pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. CDT from First Horizon Park.
