NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The Nashville Sounds six game winning streak game came to an end Monday with a 12-3 loss to the Iowa Cubs.
Sounds starter Mike Fiers had been stellar in his last five appearances heading into the game, but struggled early, allowing five runs on six hits over five innings.
Iowa shortstop Chris Valaika and outfielder Josh Vitters homered in the first and third innings respectively giving the Cubs a 5-0 lead heading into the fourth.
Sean Halton got the Sounds on the board in the fourth with an infield single and again in the eighth on a sacrifice-fly.
The Cubs blew the contest wide open with a seven-run ninth inning making Iowa’s 12 runs the most allowed in a single game by the Sounds this season.
The seven runs in the final frame are also the most allowed in a single inning.
The Sounds leave on an eight game road trip Tuesday starting with a four-game set against Colorado Springs.
