And then there was one. The Sounds play their finale game of the season today as they take on the New Orleans Baby Cakes (Marlins) on Labor Day in Louisiana. The Sounds are trying to finish the season with a sweep after another late rally and win last night down on the bayou. Today Zach Neal (3-8, 5.18) takes on lefty Victor Payano (4-3, 3.70) in the matinee.

First pitch tonight is set for 1:00 CT with the pregame at 12:45 on ALT 97.5-FM and the iHeart, MiLB First Pitch and TuneIn Radio apps. Here’s the online audio stream: http://milb.streamguys1.com/nashvillesounds.

Tioday’s interview is our final Monday chat with Sounds manager Ryan Christenson, who discusses the team’s strong finish, his “call-up” opportunity to join the A’s coaching staff in September, what he’d like to see from Renato Nunez if the young slugger gets called up to the A’s (as has been widely reported and hinted) and what types of conversations he has with players going into the off-season.

The Sounds play their penultimate home game of the season tonight as they take on the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) in Game 3 of a four-game series. The Sounds are 4-5 so far on this final homestand after falling, 9-3, last night. On the season, the Sounds now are 64-70 with six games remaining in the year, so they can’t finish with a winning record and need to win their last six to finish at .500. Tonight Zach Neal (3-8, 5.29) takes on 21-year-old Arlando Hernandez, who is up from Low-A Lexington as a spot starter. It’s the third time this homestand the Sounds have faced an opposing pitcher up from A-ball, and that hurler has tossed a quality start each time so far.

First pitch tonight is set for 7:05 CT with the pregame at 6:50 on ALT 97.5-FM and the iHeart, MiLB First Pitch and TuneIn Radio apps. Here’s the online audio stream: http://milb.streamguys1.com/nashvillesounds.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds right-hander and Houston native Daniel Mengden, who pitched well last night while working with a heavy heart. He discusses what his family and friends are dealing with in Houston right now, how difficult it is to be away and try to focus on baseball, his outing last night, and his comebacks from injury.
