NASHVILLE – The Nashville Sounds led off the season with back-to-back walk-off victories in a doubleheader in front of 7,879 fans at First Horizon Park on Saturday night. Tyler Naquin’s heroics via a two-run homer gave the Sounds a 3-1 win in game one, and Skye Bolt scored on a wild pitch to put Nashville on top 5-4 in game two.

With the first pitch in the bottom of the eighth inning in game one, Tyler Naquin launched a skyscraping home run over the left field fence. The mob scene ensued at home plate after the Sounds scored victory via their first four-bagger of the year.
