Louisville, Ky. – Despite Luis Urías reaching base five times, the Nashville Sounds (48-40, 8-6) fell to the Louisville Bats (48-40, 8-7) 8-5 in a tightly contested 10-inning contest Sunday night at Louisville Slugger Field. Nashville has been swept in three games, their first since dropping four contests in San Antonio from July 15-18, 2019.

The Sounds return to the comfort of home on Tuesday to start a six-game set against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, Triple-A of the Miami Marlins. RHP Justin Jarvis (0-1, 10.80) will toe the rubber for Nashville against Jacksonville southpaw Enmanuel De Jesus (3-3, 5.27). First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. CDT from First Horizon Park.
