X's manager Steve Montgomery and Gary manager Greg Tagert argue on Wednesday night.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Sioux City Explorers lost both ends of a doubleheader against first place Gary-Southshore, 2-0 and 6-0 on Wednesday at Lewis and Clark Park.
The X's (6-15) were limited to one hit in the opener by Gary righthander Dustin Crenshaw, who retired the first 16 batters he faced in the seven inning contest. Peter Barrows' single in the sixth inning broke up Crenshaw's perfect game.
Sioux City had just three hits in the second game against Stephen Hiscock. The X's are last in the American Association in runs scored and were shutout for the first two times this season.
Gary (11-8) scored four runs in the second inning of game two to take a quick 5-0 lead. The Railcats rallied after Sioux City manager Steve Montgomery and Gary skipper Greg Tagert had a heated exchange on the field after Montgomery went to the mound to talk to his pitcher. Both benches emptied but no punches were thrown.
The final game of the four game series will be Thursday night at 7:05.
