NASHVILLE – The Nashville Sounds (80-64, 40-30), powered by the efforts of three of Milwaukee’s top six prospects, snagged a 6-4 victory over the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (69-77, 37-34) at First Horizon Park on Wednesday night. Jackson Chourio, Milwaukee’s top prospect, earned his first Triple-A RBI, while Carlos Rodriguez (No. 6) fanned half a dozen in his Triple-A debut.

Post-Game Notes

  • With Carlos Rodriguez’s strikeout of Jake Mangum to start the fifth inning, the Sounds set a new franchise record for punchouts in a season. The previous mark of 1,265 was set in 2022.
  • Garrett Mitchell (0-for-4, R) and Darin Ruf (0-for-3, BB) each appeared on rehab assignment from Milwaukee. Mitchell served as the designated hitter while Ruf played nine innings at first base.
