Mike Fiers isn’t one of the Milwaukee Brewers top prospects, but the 29-year-old right-hander showed a crowd of 6,345 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark why he’s making a strong push to return to the majors.

Fiers struck out 10 and allowed only four hits and one run over six innings to lead the Nashville Sounds to a 5-3 win.

Fiers (4-0) lowered his ERA to 1.01. In four starts, Fiers has recorded 36 strikeouts and issued only three walks.

First baseman Hunter Morris highlighted the Sounds’ 12-hit attack with a three-run homer in the third. Andy Simunic had three hits for the RedHawks.

Trailing 5-1 entering the ninth, Oklahoma City loaded the bases with no outs. The RedHawks scored two runs on RBI ground outs before Nashville’s Rob Wooten recorded the final out.
