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.

Today the Sounds conclude their season-opening series in Omaha and are looking to take three out of four from the Storm Chasers. It’ll be Hiram Burgos against Danny Duffy in what should be a fun pitching match-up.

You can listen to the radio broadcast on the Sounds’ flagship station, 102.5 The Game or via one of two apps — 102.5 The Game or TuneIn Radio. Pregame starts at 1:50. First pitch at 2:05 CT.

Today’s interview is with with Sounds right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who yielded just one run over six innings in Game 1 of Sunday’s doubleheader. The Sounds won, 2-1, before losing, 4-3, in Game 2. Nelson discusses his outing yesterday, his off-season after working about 160 innings last year, how he approaches improving as a pitcher mentally in addition to physically and what he took away from his first taste of the major leagues last September with the Brewers.

After a solid victory last night in the season opener, the Sounds are back at it in Omaha today with a doubleheader consisting of two seven-inning games to make up for Thursday’s postponement. First pitch is set for 2:05 on the Sounds’ flagship station, 102.5 The Game.

Today’s interview is with right-hander Johnny Hellweg who gave up two runs in 5 1/3 innings last night for the win. He discusses his outing last night, what he went through during the off-season to add 40 pounds of “good weight” and how last year’s first taste of the big leagues will make a difference for him this season.

The Sounds open their 37th season of baseball tonight as they take on the Omaha Storm Chasers. It’s “Take 2″ after last night’s postponement due to inclement weather.

Tonight’s broadcast can be heard on your radio on 94.9 Game 2 (the Preds are on 102.5 The Game tonight). You can also listen via the iGoRadio app and the TuneIn Radio app. I hope you’ll join me.

Here is tonight’s pregame interview with the Sounds’ new manager Rick Sweet, who discusses why he’s so excited about this year’s club and what he feels will be the strengths of the team.
