Sam Judah played hero for the second game in a row, coming through with a two RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning lifting Sioux City to a 4-2 win Tuesday night against Winnipeg.

The win is the Explorers third straight, a feat they haven't accomplished since winning the first three games of the season against Sioux Falls.  The win improves Sioux City's record to 17-20 on the season.

Trailing 2-1 heading into the eighth, with one out, Luke Murton raced home from third on a wild pitch to tie the game at two.

Later in the inning with runners on second and third, on a 2-1 pitch Judah singled, driving home Peter Barrows and Yusuke Inoguchi to put the X's on top 4-2.

In the top of the 9th Winnipeg tried mount a rally. 

With one down, Nate Samson singled to right and tried to advance to second on a fielding miscue, but was gunned down at second in his attempt.

Chris Bodishbaugh picked up his ninth save of the season to preserve the win.

Murton led the X's going 3-for-4 at the plate and raised his average to .400.

Sioux City and Winnipeg will play again on Tuesday.  First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. at Lewis & Clark Park.
