NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The first-place Nashville Sounds downed the visiting Colorado Springs Sky Sox 5-2 Wednesday at Greer Stadium, highlighted by a four-run sixth inning featuring Pete Orr's pinch-hit home run.

Matt Clark, 2 for 4, got the Sounds' big inning started with his lead-off single to left field. Caleb Gindl followed by slapping a double to right field to score Clark and level the game at two runs apiece.

Starting pitcher Ariel Pena (7-6) held the Sky Sox scoreless through his first five frames, but ran into trouble in the sixth inning, allowing Colorado Springs to take the 2-1 lead with two runs on three hits.

Kyle Parker and Matt McBride had RBIs for the Sky Sox.

Pena, who picked up the win after benefiting from the Sounds' four-run sixth, finished with six strikeouts and no walks. He finished the inning and was followed by reliever Brent Leach, who delivered two scoreless innings for Nashville.

Rob Wooten entered in the ninth inning, using only 11 pitches to record three outs and log his fifth save of the season.
