SIOUX FALLS, SD (KTIV) - After failing to record a hit through the first four innings, Sioux City exploded for six runs on five hits in the 5th and never looked back in an 8-2 win Sunday against Sioux Falls.

The Explorers improve to 2-2 on the season.

Jimmer Kennedy, Kenny Long and Chris Bodishbaugh combined for the final five innings of relief work.

After back-to-back singles by Mark Sobolewski and Tommy Mendonca to open the 5th, an error by Sioux Falls first baseman Chris Duffy allowed Sobolewski to score the first run of the game.

Peter Barrows followed that up with a double, plating Mendoca.

The hit parade continued with Todd Jennings' RBI single to right.

Leading 4-0, Andres Perez drove in his first run of the season with a double to right to give the X's a a five run cushion.

Batting around in the inning, Sobolewski drove in Rene Tosoni before being retired.

Still leading 6-0 heading into the 8th, Barrows' offensive assault on Sioux Falls pitchers continued with an RBI triple to left.

Through four games, Barrows is batting .462 and leads the American Association with seven RBI.

The Explorers return home to Lewis & Clark Park Monday to begin a seven game homestand.  The X's host the St. Paul Saints (May 19-May 21) and then the Amarillo Sox (May 22-May 25).
