SIOUX FALLS, SD (KTIV) - The Sioux City Explorers are 0-2 in the 2014 season after a 4-1 loss in Sioux Falls on Friday night.

The Canaries scored a run in the first and then doubles their lead in the second on a solo home run from Shelby Ford to right field to make it 2-0.

Sioux Falls would add to their lead in the fifth. Brandon Jones flared a single to left scoring Steve Tinoco to make it 3-0. An error by Sioux City shortstop Nate Samson later in the fifth would give the Canaries their fourth run.

Sioux City's only run came on a two-out double by center fielder Michael Lang in the sixth inning. The X's were held to just seven hits and committed two errors.

Right-hander Geoff Broussard took the loss on the mound, pitching six innings and giving up all four runs on seven hits, while striking out five.

The Explorers host Sioux Falls on Saturday night at 7:05 in their home opener at Lewis and Clark Park.
