Lincoln Defeats X's By Final of 6-2

Sioux City-----Lincoln scored three un-earned runs in the eighth inning as they defeated the Explorers 6-2 in the first game of a three-game series at Lewis and Clark Park.


The un-earned runs came when the Explorers made two of their season high three errors.  Matt Forgatch drove in the three runs in the eighth on a bases loaded double.


After Lincoln’s Michael Coles hit a two-run home run in the third inning to give the Saltdogs a 2-0 lead, the Explorers scored single runs in the fourth and sixth innings to tie the contest.  Peter Barrows drove in the first run with a double in the fourth and Luke Murton tied the game with a RBI double in the sixth.  Both Barrows and Murton had two each apiece in a losing effort.
