Jacksonville, Fla. – The Nashville Sounds (30-29) hit four homers in game two of a doubleheader for an 11-4 win over the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (25-34) on Wednesday afternoon at 121 Financial Ballpark. Jacksonville took the first game of the day by a 4-1 final as the teams split the pair of contests.
Noah Campbell had his first breakout performance at the Triple-A level in game two with a couple of homers and a team-best six RBI. Following an RBI single in the third, Campbell launched a two-run blast in the fifth that gave Nashville an 8-0 advantage. Not to be limited to one homer, he crushed a ball almost over the right field bleachers in the sixth, a three-run shot to make it an 11-4 game.
Though the Sounds were crushing the ball throughout game two, game one was a different tale. Cam Devanney’s seventh inning solo shot was Nashville’s lone run in the 4-1 loss. Quinn also reached base twice in the early game with a single, walk and two stolen bases.
The seven-game series continues Thursday, with left-hander Thomas Pannone (1-0, 2.86) set to start for Nashville. Jacksonville’s starter will be left-hander Enmanuel De Jesus (1-1, 3.60). First pitch from 121 Financial Ballpark is set for 6:05 p.m. central time.
