NASHVILLE – The Nashville Hot Chickens (48-37, 8-3) took the lead with two solo shots in the sixth and held on to take a weather-shortened 7-6 victory over the Columbus Clippers (39-46, 6-5) in seven and a half innings on Sunday afternoon at First Horizon Park. Play was stopped in the middle of the eighth inning due to wet grounds and did not restart due to unplayable field conditions and incoming weather.

The Sounds will have the next four days off as part of the All-Star break. They will return to action on Friday, July 14 at Louisville. Right-hander Jason Alexander (1-0, 1.80) will go for Nashville. Left-hander Levi Stoudt (2-3, 5.23) gets the ball for Louisville. First pitch is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. CDT at Louisville Slugger Field.
