HINTON, Iowa (KTIV) - The Sioux City Explorers fell to 1-1 in the preseason, losing to Lincoln 23-16 on Wednesday night. The game was played at Hinton High School and was stopped after eight innings.

The X's, who won their exhibition opener against Sioux Falls, 19-0, scored seven runs in the first inning off of Saltdogs starter Joe Bisenius, a former major league pitcher with the Phillies and Nationals and a Bishop Heelan graduate.
