The Sounds completed a seven-game trip out West yesterday as they concluded four games in Tacoma after three in Reno. They’re back in action Wednesday night at First Tennessee with a seven-game homestand. The 14-game inter-conference swing continues with three against Las Vegas (A’s) and four against Salt Lake (Angels). First pitch Wednesday night is at 7:05, and I’ll have the broadcast for you starting at 6:50 on 97.5-FM, the TuneIn Radio app, the MiLB First Pitch app and NashvilleSounds.com (direct audio link HERE).
