The Milwaukee Brewers extended their player development contract with Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

The two-year extension runs through the 2014 season.

"We are pleased to extend our working agreement with the Sounds," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said. "While the current facility and conditions are not totally satisfactory, we remain loyal and are very supportive of the ownership and Frank Ward in his continued efforts to get a much-needed new park. As general manager of a Major League franchise, I totally believe in this ownership, and if we can get the same support from the city, Nashville will be one of the most desirable franchises in minor league baseball."

The Sounds have served as the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate since the start of the 2005 season. Nashville has produced five winning records, made the playoffs three times and captured the 2005 Pacific Coast League title during the eight-year span.
