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.

The Sounds continue their four-game set against Omaha tonight in Nashville, as they try to even the set and snap a three-game losing streak. First pitch is at 6:35 p.m. with pregame at 6:20. The broadcast airs on 94.9 Game 2, as the Predators are playing hockey tonight on the Sounds’ flagship, 102.5 The Game. You can also listen via the iGoRadio and TuneIn Radio apps.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds outfielder Caleb Gindl, who discusses his home run and two-hit performance from Friday, his start to the season, trying to use not making the Brewers roster out of spring training as a positive and playing for Sounds manager Rick Sweet in winter ball in 2011 when Sweet was with the Reds organization.

Baseball is back at Greer tonight! It’s the 37th and final Greer Stadium home opener, and the Sounds take on Omaha. First pitch at 7:05, and pregame starts at 6:50 on 102.5 The Game.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds utility man Eugenio Velez, who discusses his hot start (.524, 2 HRs, 6 RBIs) to the season, his role on the team, the importance of playing winter ball in his native Dominican Republic, and his new teammates, Irving Falu and Elian Herrera, who play a similar style and role for the Sounds.

The Sounds wrap up their season-opening eight-game road trip today as they try to split a four-game series in Iowa and earn a split on the road trip. Jimmy Nelson gets the ball against Kyle Hendricks. First pitch is set for 12:05 p.m. CT on 102.5 The Game, and pregame starts at 11:50 a.m. You can also listen via iGoRadio and TuneIn Radio apps.

Today’s interview is with Sounds third baseman Taylor Green, who is on the comeback trail after missing all of 2013 with a torn labrum in his hip that required surgical repair. As you can hear in the interview, Green feels great and wants to and feels he can play every day. He homered yesterday as part of a 2-for-3 day at the plate. He discusses coming back from the injury, what he had to get used to doing again after missing a year and how feels so far this season.

This afternoon it’s Game 3 in the four-game set for the Sounds in Iowa. A 12:05 CT first pitch with pregame at 11:50 a.m. Today, like tomorrow and Friday, we’re back on the Sounds’ flagship, 102.5 The Game. As always, you can also listen via the iGoRadio and TuneIn Radio apps.

Today’s interview is with last night’s Sounds starter and winner, Mike Fiers, who discusses his dominant ’14 debut, coming back from an injury-shortened ’13, the Sounds’ formidable starting rotation and playing winter ball in Venezuela where his manager was Rick Sweet.

The Sounds (2-3) look to snap a three-game losing streak tonight as they play Game 2 of their four-game set against the Iowa Cubs (2-3). Due to Predators hockey on 102.5 The Game, the Sounds will air on 94.9 Game 2. First pitch is set for 6:35 CT with pregame at 6:20.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds first baseman Hunter Morris, who had three hits Sunday in Omaha and two hits last night in Iowa. He’s 7-for-19 (.368) so far, and trust me when I tell you some of the outs have been hard, loud outs. Morris discusses his hitting thus far, how he feels about his own game and the team early in the season and what feels different compared to last year, his first experience at Triple-A.

The Sounds continue their season-opening eight-game road trip tonight with the first of four in Iowa against the I-Cubs. First pitch is set for 6:35 CT, and pregame coverage begins at 6:20. Radio coverage is on 94.9 Game 2 tonight as well as the iGoRadio and TuneIn Radio apps.

Like previous years, every Monday will bring us a weekly chat with the Sounds manager. So, until I come up with something more clever, here is this week’s installment of “Sweet Mondays” with Rick Sweet. He discusses the team’s four-game split in Omaha and gives an update on reliever Jose De La Torre, who left Sunday’s relief outing with an injury.
