Winnipeg 9, Sioux City 5 – Game 1/7 Innings

The Winnipeg Goldeyes took the first game of their twinbill with the Sioux City Explorers 9-5 thanks to a late-inning offensive explosion.

In the seventh, the Goldeyes added four more runs as 1B Shawn Pleffner provided the game winning runs with a grand slam.

The Explorers were held to just three hits in the game but one of those was a three-run home run from 1B Dre Gleason in the bottom of the fourth inning.
