The Sioux City Explorers roughed up six Winnipeg hurlers, scoring nine runs on 18 hits, but the Goldeyes did even more damage knocking around X's pitchers for 10 runs on 14 hits in a 10-9 win Sunday night at Lewis & Clark Park.
The two squads also combined for five errors in the game.
The loss snaps Sioux City's four game winning streak.
Trailing 1-0 heading in the home half of the first inning, Brandon Newton led the inning off with a triple. Yusuke Inoguchi drove Newton home on a fielders choice to tie the game at one.
Two batters later, with one on, Ray Serrano blasted his sixth home run of the season to put the X's up 3-1. One pitch later, Ryan Priddy followed suit, homering off Rich Hawkins to give Sioux City a 4-1 lead.
Sioux City would hold that lead until the four inning, when Winnipeg roughed up starter Nick Schumacher for fours runs in the inning. The squads would exchange runs over the next four frames.
Now trailing 10-7 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, the X's mounted their comeback.
After a lead off single by Serrano to start the ninth, Ryan Priddy followed up with a bunt single. Wally Backman, Jr. reached first on an error, loading the bases with nobody out.
The fourth batter of the inning, Adrian Martinez pulled Sioux City within 10-9 with his RBI single.
But, Goldeyes closer Kaohi Downing closed the door the rest of the way collecting three straight outs to end the rally.
