The Sounds were off on Wednesday. They next travel to Memphis where they open a four game series with the Redbirds on Thursday evening.
Huntsville got back on the winning track on Wednesday afternoon with a 7-5 win over Jackson. Mitch Haniger hit a pair of home runs as part of a 3-for-4 day and knocked in four runs.

Tanner Poppe followed with two scoreless and David Goforth finished with two shutout innings to record his 13th save.
The Manatees scored two in the fist and that would prove to be all they would need to knock off the Pirates FSL affiliate.

Clint Coulter also belted a home run earlier in the game, his team leading 11th of the year. Outfielder Michael Ratterree doubled and was hit by a pitch. Tyler Alexander started for the Rattlers and went 3.1 innings, allowing two runs. Rodolfo Fernandez followed Alexander with 1.2 scoreless innings before giving way to Taylor Williams. Williams went four innings and gave up two runs, one earned en route to his third win of the season.
The Brewers squeaked out a win as first baseman Nicol Valderrey scored the game’s only run to give the Brewers a 1-0 victory. Valderrey singled and walked in four trips to the plate. Raphachel Colatosti went 2-for-4 and collected the only Brewers extra-base hit, a double. Juan De Los Santos singled and drew a pair of walks. Starter Yosmer Leal went four scoreless, striking out six. Orlando Torrez followed and matched Leal with four shutout innings and six punchouts.
