Sioux City, IA (June 3, 2022) — The Sioux City Explorers take the opening game of a three game series from the Gary SouthShore RailCats, 5-0.

The X’s continued to roll in the third with John Anthon scoring on Nick Franklin’s RBI single to go ahead 2-0. Franklin added another RBI single in the fifth to push the X’s lead to 3-0. And a two-run single off the bat of Chase Harris in the sixth finished off the X’s offensive out put for the night, 5-0.
