Sausalito's Duane Martin Suffers Setback
Sunday, May 7th, 2017
The road to recovery is going to be a little longer for Sausalito reliever Duane Martin. The team announced today that Martin suffered a setback in his rehabilitation and will not return to the roster for at least 4 days. He is being treated for a herniated disc.

So far this year Martin has nailed down no saves. His won-lost record is 1-1 with a 3.24 ERA.
Predators Chambers Nails Down 400th Save
Saturday, May 6th, 2017
The Nashville Predators really celebrated their 6-3 victory over the Toronto Red Birds at First Tennessee Park. Not only did the Predators win the game, but reliever Wilford Chambers recorded his 400th-career save. The bullpen ace stopped Toronto on no runs and 1 hit in his 1 innings of work to seal the triumph.

"It's a good milestone -- it doesn't happen very often," Chambers said. "I was out there when my teammates needed me 400 times, and I'm real proud of that."

During his career Chambers has appeared in 816 games, logging 941.2 innings with 1120 strikeouts. He has carved out a 2.22 ERA with 73 wins and 47 losses and posted 400 saves.

Tucker Rips Toronto for 5 Hits
Saturday, May 6th, 2017
Jared Tucker put on a hitting clinic today as the Nashville Predators dumped the Toronto Red Birds 6-3 at First Tennessee Park.

The Nashville second baseman made Toronto defenders earn their pay, lashing Toronto pitching for 5 hits in 5 at-bats in the game. He told BNN reporters after the game that his strategy was "just hit it where they pitched it."

"Too often I try too hard to pull the ball," Tucker said in his postgame press conference. "Today, I just went with the pitch."

Jared Tucker singled in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, doubled in the 5th, hit an RBI double in the 6th and singled in the 8th.

In 33 games Tucker is hitting .286 this season with 38 hits, 4 home runs, 11 RBIs, 17 walks, .373 OBP and has scored 25 runs.
