Nashville takes 100th win against the Express


The Nashville Sounds took an early lead and defeated Round Rock 8-3 for their 100th win against the Express at Dell Diamond on Saturday night.

Both teams entered the game with 99 wins apiece in the all-time series, but Nashville (2-1) plated seven runs through three innings and didn’t look back.

Franklin Barreto stayed hot as he went 3 for 4 from the plate with three runs scored, a home run and two runs batted in. Jaff Decker was 3 for 5 with a run scored, a double and an RBI.

Renato Núñez drove in two runs as Nashville pounded out 14 hits in the win. He drove in a run in each of the first two innings.

Ronald Guzman homered and drove home a run on a ground out to lead the offense for the Express (1-2).

Will Middlebrooks drove home Round Rock’s first run on a single in the bottom of the third, but by then the Sounds were up 7-1.

Two singles, a walk and a sacrifice fly accounted for four runs in the first inning as Nashville roughed up Express starter Dillon Gee. He suffered the loss, allowing seven earned runs on ten hits through four innings. He struck out two, walked one, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch.

Cesar Valdéz picked up the win, allowing two runs on five hits through five innings. He struck out five and didn’t give up a walk.

Guzman’s homer made it 7-2 in the fourth, but Decker responded in the fifth with an RBI single to score Matt McBride.

The Express will try to even the series Sunday with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
