Sioux City hasn't been kind to the Goldeyes on this road trip, as the Fish lost a second straight lopsided decision Monday.
Explorers starting pitcher Alex Caldera surrendered just two hits over six innings as Sioux City romped to an 8-0 win witnessed by 586 fans at Lewis and Clark Park. The Goldeyes were defeated 10-3 by the Explorers on Sunday.
Goldeyes starter Matt Jackson retired the first nine batters before Peter Barrows broke open a scoreless game with a two-run shot in the fourth inning. The home side added two runs in the sixth, three in the seventh and another in the eighth.
The Fish managed just four hits and struck out eight times. Reggie Abercrombie extended his season-high hitting streak to 13 games with a single.
The two teams play again Tuesday and Wednesday before the Goldeyes return home for a four-game set against the Wichita Wingnuts, with the first game set for Thursday at Shaw Park.
