NASHVILLE – The Nashville Sounds (32-31) scored eight runs in the first two innings on their way to stomping the Gwinnett Stripers (29-35) 11-3 on Tuesday night at First Horizon Park. Nashville plated six in a second inning that saw 10 Sounds come up to the plate.

Robert Gasser (W, 5-1) rolled through another strong outing on the hill, allowing three earned runs over six innings and striking out five. Darrell Thompson, J.C. Mejia and Alex Claudio combined for three scoreless frames of relief.

Post-Game Notes

  • Robert Gasser turned in another great start tonight. Over his last three starts, the southpaw has struck out 21 over 20.0 innings. He has a 3.15 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over the span. Gasser leads the International League with 72 strikeouts this season.
  • Gasser has yet to allow a run, earned or otherwise, in the first inning this season. He is the only pitcher in the IL, and just one of eight in the minors, with 10 or more starts and a 0.00 ERA in the first inning.
  • Nashville’s 16 hits came just shy of their season-high of 17, which was accomplished on June 1 at Charlotte.
  • Rehabbing Brewers outfielder Jesse Winker went 3-for-4 with two runs, a homer, RBI and one walk. In five games on assignment, Winker is batting .385 (5-for-13) with four runs, three homers, three RBI and more walks (4) than strikeouts (2).
  • Alex Jackson scored three times, his first three-run night since May 27, 2021 vs. Memphis with Gwinnett. Jackson hit three homers in that 2021 contest.
