Nashville Sounds Settle For Sunday Split in Jacksonville


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Two-homer games by Eddy Alvarez and Tyler Naquin highlighted the afternoon as the Nashville Sounds (31-31) split a twin bill with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (27-35) on Sunday at 121 Financial Ballpark. The Sounds won the continuation of Saturday night’s suspended game 6-4, needing an additional frame to secure the victory. Jacksonville rumbled early in game two, cruising to an 8-4 win. Nashville continues their tango with .500 with a doubleheader, series, and road trip split.

The Sounds head home to kick off a 12-game homestand. They will start a six-game set against the Gwinnett Stripers, affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, on Tuesday night. Starters for both teams are TBD. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. central time.
