After going 4-3 on their eight-day road trip and ending with a 8-7 hearbreaking loss last night in Colorado Springs, the Sounds are back in Nashville tonight to start a four-game series with the New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins). Chris Smith (0-2, 7.20) faces Ivan Pineyro (0-2, 4.09) with a first pitch at 6:35 CT and pregame on 94.9 Game 2 and online HERE (Preds hockey has the flagship 102.5 The Game tonight).

Tonight’s interview is with infielder/outfielder Max Muncy, who went 6-for-15 with two homers and seven RBIs in the Colorado Springs series, including a two-run homer in the 9th last night that looked like it would be the game-winner before the Sky Sox rallied with three in the bottom of the inning. Muncy discusses his start to the season, playing several different positions, what he took away from last year’s first taste of Triple-A and the big leagues, and a return to his native Texas next weekend for the Round Rock series.

The Sounds conclude an eight-day road trip tonight as they try to take three out of four from the Sky Sox in Colorado Springs. The Sounds are 4-2 on the trip after a thrilling 9-8 win last night in Game 3 that included an Andrew Lambo grand slam, the first grand slam by a Sound since 2014 (Jeremy Hermida). Tonight it’s Sean Manaea (2-0, 1.50) for the Sounds (7-7) against Jorge Lopez (0-0, 6.48) for the Sky Sox (6-7). First pitch on flagship 102.5 The Game, the TuneIn Radio app and online HERE is set for 7:35 CT. Pregame starts at 7:20.

Tonight’s interview is with Lambo, who discusses his start to the season and joining the A’s; his last few years with the Pirates, including being on their Opening Day roster last year and missing most of the year with plantar fasciitis; and his passion for always trying to improve.

After splitting a doubleheader yesterday, the Sounds and Sky Sox continue their four-game series tonight with Game 3. Zach Neal opposes Brent Suter. First pitch is 7:35 CT, and pregame coverage on 94.9 Game 2 (with Preds hockey on flagship 102.5 The Game tonight) and online HERE commences at 7:20.

Tonight’s interview is with left-hander Dillon Overton, who tossed a seven-inning complete game yesterday in Game 2 of the twinbill, an 8-1 win that included home runs from Max Muncy, Joey Wendle and Chad Pinder. Overton discusses his performance yesterday, pitching at high elevation in The Springs, getting to see family and friends during the series in Oklahoma City, and the evolution his tremendous command and off-speed pitches.

After a postponement last night in Colorado Springs, the Sounds and Sky play a doubleheader today starting at 12:05 CT. It’s Jesse Hahn — with 12 scoreless innings on the year so far — taking on Junior Guerra in Game 1 in a rematch of last Wednesday afternoon in Nashville (Here’s a piece on Hahn from A’s MLB.com beat reporter Jane Lee). First pitch is set for 12:05 CT with pregame at 11:50 a.m. Game 2 features Dillon Overton against Ariel Pena, and the broadcast will move over to 94.9 Game 2 and online HERE.

Today’s interview — taped yesterday before the postponement — is with Sounds reliever Ryan Brasier, who tossed two more scoreless innings Monday in OKC and has 6 2/3 scoreless innings on the year. He joins Danny Coulombe (5ip), Tucker Healy (5ip) and Patrick Schuster (5ip) as Sounds reliever yet to allow a run this season. Brasier discusses how he feels this season, what it’s like to pitch in cold temperatures, and signing with the A’s in July last year following several years with the Angels and a comeback from 2014 Tommy John elbow surgery.

After getting postponed by rain on Sunday in Oklahoma City (with the makeup scheduled as part of a doubleheader on June 9 when the Sounds come back here), the Sounds conclude their series with the Dodgers tonight. The Sounds have moved everyone in the rotation back a day following the rainout, so Chris Smith opposes Zach Lee tonight in a rematch of Opening Night in Nashville. First pitch on 102.5 The Game, the TuneIn app and online HERE  is set for 7:05 CT with pregame at 6:50.

Tonight’s interview is this week’s installment with Sounds manager Steve Scarsone, who discusses the team’s 4-2 record over the last six games, the overall feel of the team with so many new players compared to last year, the hot-hitting from Renato Nunez and how a rainout can help a team.

The Sounds continue their four-game series and eight-game road trip tonight as they take on the Oklahoma City Dodgers in Game 2. The Sounds took the opener last night, 5-3, thanks in part to back-to-back home runs from Renato Nunez and Matt Olson, each hitting his first Triple-A round-tripper. Tonight it’s quite a pitching matchup. Two of the top pitching prospects in the game go at it — Sean Manaea for the Sounds (4-5), and Julio Urias for the Dodgers (5-4). First pitch on 102.5 The Game and the TuneIn app is set for 7:05. Pregame at 6:50.

Tonight’s interview is with the Sounds third baseman Nunez, who discusses his home run last night, playing in April this year after not playing in April last year at Double-A Midland, and his otherwise great 2015 that included Midland’s Texas League title and his appearances in the Futures Game and Arizona Fall League.

After going 3-5 on their season-starting homestand, the Sounds start their first road trip of the year tonight, battling the Oklahoma City Dodgers in Bricktown. First pitch is set for 7:05, and I’ll have the broadcast for you starting at 6:50 on 94.9 Game 2 and online HERE (with Predators hockey on flagship 102.5 The Game tonight). It’s Zach Neal against Jeremy Kehrt in a rematch from last Sunday in Nashville when Kehrt beat Neal in a 3-1 final.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds shortstop and center fielder Tyler Ladendorf, who had three hits and made three outstanding defensive plays last night in the Sounds’ disappointing 7-5 loss. Ladendorf discusses his start to the season, whether he views himself as a leader on the team, his outlook coming into the season after an ankle injury shortened his otherwise promising 2015, and his thoughts on the NHL playoffs as a Chicago-area native who played hockey in high school.
