SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -  After an hour-long rain delay to start their seven game homestand, the Sioux City Explorers beat Sioux Falls, 7-5, on Friday night. Dillon Usiak's two-out double in the eighth inning drove in two runs to give Sioux City a 6-5 lead. Todd Jennings followed Usiak's heroics with an RBI single to give the X's an insurance run.

Sioux City (13-22) scored three runs in the first inning. Rene Tosoni singled to drive in Oscar Mesa for a 1-0 lead. Sacrifice flies from Nate Samson and Amos Ramon plated two more runs for the X's.

Sioux Falls (12-21) would score four runs in the sixth to take a 5-3 lead and chase X's starting pitcher Wade Morrison, who struck out four over 5 2/3 innings.

Sioux City got closer in the bottom of the sixth. Samson's second homer of the season cut the Canaries lead to 5-4.

Game two of the series is Saturday night at 7:05. Sunday's series finale starts at 6:05 at Lewis and Clark Park.
