The Sounds continue their eight-game road trip tonight as they take on the Reno Aces (D-backs) in Game 2 of a four-game series. The Sounds had an early lead last night but ultimately fell, 4-3, in low-scoring game that is very atypical for Reno. The Sounds have dropped four straight games as they take the field tonight in Northern Nevada. They’ll send Corey Walter (2-5, 5.82), up against Arizona prospect Taylor Clarke, who makes his Triple-A debut and went 9-7 with a 2.91 ERA in 21 starts at Double-A.

First pitch tonight is set for 9:05 CT with the pregame at 8:50 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 Oakland A’s player development director Keith Lieppman, who’s in Reno to watch the Sounds in person for a few days. He discusses Frankie Montas’ outing last night, Matt Olson and Franklin Barreto remaining with the Sounds and not being in Oakland right after the trade deadline, and the importance of playing multiple positions for guys like Yairo Munoz and Joey Wendle.
