NASHVILLE — Andy Gonzalez led off the bottom of the ninth inning with his six homer of the season, and Nashville trimmed Oklahoma City 3-2 on Wednesday night in Pacific Coast League baseball before 3,001 fans at Greer Stadium.
Nashville (29-44) had lost 10 consecutive games to the RedHawks (42-30) before Gonzalez launched Adalberto Flores' full-count pitch over the left field wall. Gonzalez had grounded out, grounded into a double play and struck out in three previous at bats. Flores, who entered the game in the eighth inning, fell to 4-1.
Oklahoma City recovered from a two-run deficit in the sixth inning. Angel Sanchez was hit by a pitch, and Landon Powell walked. J.B. Shuck followed an out later with a triple.
Vinnie Chulk, the last of four Nashville pitchers, improved to 3-0 after striking out two in just one inning of work. Sounds starter Seth McClung entered the game with an 1-8 record, but he threw well Wednesday night. He held one of the PCL's top offenses to two runs on two hits in six innings. McClung had a game-best six strikeouts.
