Aviators manage just 2 hits in loss to Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Right-hander Tim Dillard and three relievers held the Aviators to two hits as the Nashville Sounds notched a 2-0 Pacific Coast League victory Wednesday night before 8,994 at First Tennessee Park.

Dillard (5-5) worked 5 2/3 innings, allowing both hits. He struck out two and walked three.

Nashville (26-39) snapped a scoreless tie in the fifth when Chase d’Arnaud’s sacrifice fly scored Tyler Pill, a former Las Vegas 51s player, from third base.

Eli White, who was 2-for-4, added a solo homer in the sixth.

Nick Martini had both hits — doubles — for the Aviators (35-31).

Loser Jake Buchanan (3-5) pitched six innings, allowing four hits and two runs. He struck out three and walked two.
