On Sunday, the Nashville Sounds made four player moves including the call-up of starting pitcher Tim Dillard to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The 26-year-old right-hander leads the Pacific Coast League with 10 victories this season, posting a 10-4 record and 3.66 ERA in his 19 outings for Nashville.

Dillard saved his finest effort for last for the Sounds, working an eight-inning, one-hit shutout on Wednesday at Memphis and throwing just 65 pitches in the contest.

He is a candidate to make a start for Milwaukee on Tuesday and fill the roster spot of ex-Sound Seth McClung, who was placed on the Brewers' disabled list due to a sprained right elbow.

In an additional transaction on Sunday, Nashville added former Major League reliever Jesus Colome to the roster. The former Nationals reliever was signed to a minor league contract by the Brewers on Monday.

Sounds management stayed busy on Sunday, swapping a pair of relievers between Nashville and Double-A Huntsville.

Right-hander Wes Littleton was sent down to the Stars after posting an 0-4 record and 7.14 ERA relief appearances this season. Left-hander Sam Narron returns to Nashville after going 1-0 with a 2.13 ERA in a pair of Southern League starts.

After a long road trip, the Sounds return to Greer Stadium on Tuesday to open a nine-game homestand.
