NASHVILLE — Khris Davis’ three-run home run in the seventh inning gave the Nashville Sounds a lead they would not relinquish in a 6-5 triumph over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Monday night at Herschel Greer Stadium.
The Isotopes (57-46) have lost four of five games since the all-star break. They fell out of first place for the first time since July 7 as they’re now one game behind Round Rock in the PCL’s American Southern division.
Stephen Fife made a rehab start for the Los Angeles Dodgers and allowed two runs in four innings. Scooter Gannett singled home a run in the third inning and Josh Prince later scored in that inning on a Fife wild pitch. Fife allowed four hits (two were bloopers and one was an infield single), walked one and struck out six.
Matt Palmer, the regularly scheduled starting pitcher, entered in the fifth inning. Davis, the son of a Dodgers scout, singled home a run in the fifth inning to give him four RBIs in the game.
In the bottom of the seventh, Davis crushed an 0-1 pitch for the go-ahead home run, wiping away the Isotopes’ 4-3 edge. It was his 13th home run.
