Durham, N.C. – The Nashville Sounds (20-19) had a rough go of it on Tuesday night, taking a 7-2 loss to the Durham Bulls at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in the first game of the six-game set.

Durham Bulls starter and rehabbing Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow set the tone early. The fireballer dominated the Sounds hitters, striking out nine over 4.0 scoreless innings in his third rehab start of the season.

The Sounds will try and even things up in game two of the six-game series today. Right-hander Pedro Fernandez (1-1, 2.63) is the scheduled starter for Nashville. Right-hander Taj Bradley (1-3, 11.25) will start for the Bulls. First pitch is scheduled for 5:35 p.m. CDT at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
