Yi 6C THE TCHMCSStAN rrWw'AlWWT IT, a. Tonight's game Nashville closes out Its ftve-game series with Buffalo at 7:35 wtm right-hander Rob Lopez the scheduled starter. Lopez is 7-8 with a 3.63 earned run average. His Bison counter-part tonight Is right-hander Rick Reed, 6-3 and 2.63. I vs. ET4 Colvard jumps from frying pan into fire While most players involved In a pennant race don't relish the idea of change, it's not bad for the Benny Colvard, the newest Sound. Colvard, called up earlier in the week from Chattanooga, was in- volved in a pennant race with the Class AA Lookouts. "We were four games out of first, even though we were playing below .500," said Colvard, who played col-legiately at Eastern Oklahoma State College for one season and then at Southeast Oklahoma State for three. "I was surprised to be called up this late in the season." Colvard said there has been no major discussion on what his role will be, although as a right-handed hitter he expects to be used primarily against left-handed pitchers. "Nothing much has been said," Colvard said. "I'm just here to play and help when and where I can." Roster effects: The Nashville Sounds roster is due for another change. Nashville's Chris Hammond, the American Association leader in wins, ERA and strikeouts, is to leave today to go to Cincinnati, replacing Danny Jackson on the disabled list And Rosario Rodriquez, a lefthander reliever from Chattanooga who played at Nashville the first month of the season, has also been called up by the Reds. That means that Cincinnati will have to either put someone else on the disabled list, release a player or send someone down to the minor leagues. If they Reds release a player, speculation is that it will be veteran pitcher Rick Mahler, who has not been that effective of late. Speculation is that if they send someone down, it might be right-hander Scott Scudder. Skeeter Skeeter Barnes missed last night's game with a pulled leg muscle It was the first game this season in which the veteran Barnes has not played.
