FARGO, ND - A late rally fell short on Wednesday night as the RedHawks fell 7-3 in the rubber against the Sioux City Explorers at Newman Outdoor Field. Devan Ahart had three hits and a solo home run for Fargo-Moorhead in the loss.

The Explorers (65-23) jumped out to a 5-0 lead after four and a half innings before the RedHawks (47-40) were able to get on the board. Sioux City put together 15 hits over four innings (third-sixth) to score six runs off RedHawks starter Brandon Barker.
