Sioux City jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but it wasn't enough as Fargo-Moorehead rallied to top the Explorers 5-4 Saturday night.

The loss is the X's 10th in 11 games, dropping them to 24-36 on the season.

Leugim Barroso scored the first run of the game, racing home on a wild pitch by RedHawks pitcher Alex Caldera.  Two batters later, Luke Murton smashed a double into right center plating Bryan Pounds to give the X's a 2-0 lead after one inning.

Fargo-Moorhead exchanged runs in the third inning before Mitch Einertson's RBI single in the fourth inning tied the game up at two.

Tied at four heading into the ninth inning, Ronnie Bourquin led the final frame off with a solo home run.  That proved to be the game winning run.

Richard Salazar tossed seven innings and did not factor into the decision. Jimmer Kennedy took the loss.

Sioux City and Fargo-Moorhead wrap up the four game series on Sunday. First pitch is set for 6:05 p.m. at Lewis & Clark Park.
