Jacksonville, Fla. – The Nashville Sounds (30-30) couldn’t get going offensively, mustering just three hits in a 4-1 loss to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (26-34) on Thursday night at 121 Financial Ballpark.
The offense was stifled by Jacksonville starter Enmanuel De Jesus (W, 2-1), picking up just three hits. Brian Navarreto’s double was the lone extra-base knock for the Sounds. The bats had a few opportunities early on, getting the leadoff hitter on base in five of the first six innings. But they cashed in only once, leaving four men aboard and losing two others via outs on the basepaths.
The Sounds look to turn it around tomorrow night as Janson Junk (2-4, 4.27) toes the rubber. Rehabbing Miami southpaw Trevor Rogers (1-0, 0.00) gets the nod for the Jumbo Shrimp. First pitch from 121 Financial Ballpark is set for 6:05 p.m. central time.
