Greg Holt prepares to throw a pitch during Sioux City's 12-2 loss to Wichita on Friday night.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Even with a big Fourth of July crowd watching at Lewis and Clark Park, Wichita was too much for the Explorers on Friday, beating Sioux City 12-2.
Sioux City took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Rene Tosoni and Andres Perez had back-to-back doubles with two outs to bring in the first run of the game.
The Wingnuts (32-17) countered with their own two-out rally in the second inning. Chris McClendon hit a three-run homer off of X's starter Greg Holt for a 3-1 lead. Wichita added four more runs in the third inning for a 7-1 advantage, including a two-run single by McClendon.
Sioux City (20-29) would get another run in the bottom of the third when Tosoni singled to drive in rookie Tim Colwell to cut the lead to 7-2. Jake Kahaulelio drove in another Wichita run in the sixth off of X's reliever Alex Pagano. The Wingnuts added three more runs in the ninth.
The series will wrap up on Saturday night at 7:05. The X's have Sunday and Monday off and then travel to Winnipeg on Tuesday.
