The X's took down Lincoln 11-4 in five innings and sit one game away from tying the Saltdogs for the Central Division lead.

Sioux City exploded in the second, scoring seven runs. They chalked up three more in the third and one in the fourth before the game was called in the fifth due to rain.

Outfielder Derrick Robinson knocked in three runs, while outfielder Michael Lang and catcher Ralph Henriquez chalked up two RBI's.    

These two teams take the field again tomorrow at seven at Lewis and Clark Park.
