In the eighth innings, Nate Samson's two-out single scored Michael Lang and the X's trailed 4-3. Fargo-Moorhead scored a run in the bottom of the eighth for a 5-3 lead but Sioux City would not give up.

Mark Sobolewski led off the top of the ninth with a home run to cut the lead to 5-4 but that's as close as the X's would get. X's starting pitcher Ryan Mitchell worked into the seventh inning but took the loss.
