Today it’s afternoon baseball in Nashville as the Sounds play Game 3 of their four-game set against Omaha. For the rest of the season, except for two dates later in the summer, all Sounds games are scheduled to air on the flagship, 102.5 The Game. Today’s game starts at 2:05 p.m. with Mike Fiers facing P.J. Walters.

Today’s interview is with Sounds second baseman Pete Orr, a 34-year-old veteran who’s played over 400 games in the big leagues with the Braves, Nationals and Phillies. He’s also played in over 1,000 minor league games, a ton of which have been at Triple-A. He nailed an RBI triple last night, made a great play on defense late in the game and also hit what would have been a tape measure home run to right if not for a stiff wind blowing in from that direction. He discusses his game last night, his season so far, coming to the Brewers as a minor league free agent and some of the keys to being successful at Triple-A.
