SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -
Winnipeg rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Sioux City Explorers, 9-5, on Tuesday in game one of a doubleheader at Mercy Field at Lewis and Clark Park.
The Explorers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Tony Campana scored on a ground out by Joe Bennie.
Sioux City (33-34) doubled their lead in the third inning when Dre Gleason scored on a fielder's choice to make it 2-0.

Shawn Pleffner hit a grand slam home run in the seventh inning off of X's reliever Brad Orosey to put Winnipeg in the lead for the first time at 9-5.
