The Memphis Redbirds continued a six-game homestand with a 6-1 win over the Nashville Sounds on Thursday night at AutoZone Park.

Memphis starting pitcher Michael McGreevy (1-1) provided the best start for the club of 2024. The right-handed pitcher tossed 6.2 innings of shutout baseball, allowed four hits, walked one and struck out four. The start is the longest by a Redbird this season and the first scoreless.

First baseman Luken Baker gave Memphis the lead in the bottom of the first with a three-run home run to left field, his third home run of the season. With the blast, Baker became the first Redbird batter to reach the double-digit RBI plateau.
