WINNIPEG, Man. -- The slide continued Wednesday for the Sioux City Explorers.

The franchise-record losing streak reached double digits Tuesday at Shaw Park following a narrow 5-3 loss to Winnipeg.

Sioux City couldn't avoid a 10th straight setback as Winnipeg got the most of its eight hits in the contest.

After spotting the Explorers a 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning the host Goldeyes tallied three runs of their own in the bottom half of the frame.

David Rohm hit an RBI single that was followed by a two-run single off the bat of Josh Romanski for Winnipeg.

Sioux City, also with eight hits in the game, had taken the early lead on RBI singles from Michael Lang and Jayce Ray.

Winnipeg, the Central Division leaders, tallied single runs in the fifth and sixth innings off Explorers' starting pitcher Kramer Sneed, who allowed five earned runs on eight hits in five and 2/3 innings.

Rohm, one of three Goldeyes with two hits each in the game, connected for his fifth home run of the season in the fifth while Casey Turgeon delivered an RBI double in the sixth.

Sioux City stranded 10 runners in the contest including leaving the bases loaded in the eighth and two aboard in the ninth when the game ended.

Ray, who was 2-for-3 in the game, lifted a sacrifice fly in the ninth before Ryan Chaffee closed for his 20th save of the season.

Sioux City plays the third and final game of the series in Winnipeg on Thursday before opening a three-game series at Haymarket Park against Lincoln on Friday.
