The Sounds continue a seven-game road trip as they play Game 2 in a four-game series in Memphis against the Redbirds. Tonight Taylor Jungmann (4-5, 5.55) faces John Gast (2-2, 9.43). First pitch from Autozone Park is 7:05, with pregame at 6:50 on 102.5 The Game and the TuneIn Radio and iGoRadio apps.

Tonight’s interview is with new Sounds first baseman Matt Clark, who has played in three games with the Sounds after signing with the Brewers as a minor league free agent. The former LSU Tiger played in the Padres system for several years, including two very successful years at Tucson in ’11 and ’12, where he worked with current Sounds hitting coach Bob Skube. Clark then played in Japan in 2013 and, after finding out late in the winter he wouldn’t be going back to Japan, signed with the Mets in January and went to Double-A. The Brewers signed him last week when they confirmed Sounds first baseman Hunter Morris had suffered a fracture in his right wrist and would be missing several weeks.

The Sounds have won eight of their last 10 and they continue a seven-game road trip as they open a four-game series in Memphis against the Redbirds. The clubs just met in Nashville last week, and the Sounds took three out of four. Tonight Jimmy Nelson (10-2, 1.56), who is in the Top 4 in all of the minors in wins, ERA, strikeouts and opposing average, faces Zach Petrick (4-4, 5.45). First pitch from Autozone Park is 7:05, with pregame at 6:50 on 102.5 The Game and the TuneIn Radio and iGoRadio apps.

Tonight’s interview is this week’s installment of “Mondays with the Manager” with Sounds skipper Rick Sweet, who discusses the Sounds’ recent hot hitting,  including Jeremy Hermida and Sean Halton, the offense’s balance in the lineup, the addition of first baseman Matt Clark and the injuries to Hunter Morris and Dustin Molleken.

The Sounds look to take their win streak to five tonight as they play Game 2 of their four-game set against the Memphis Redbirds. It’s Ariel Pena (4-6, 4.72) against rehabbing St. Louis hurler (and former Redbird) Joe Kelly. Originally-scheduled starter Zach Petrick will follow Kelly.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds infielder and Ontario native Pete Orr, who discusses Canada Day, which commemorates July 1, 1867; his love for the Toronto Blue Jays when he was a kid; his and the team’s season to this point; and what a busy and unpredictable time of year this is for a Triple-A roster.
