We have not received any word on the Battle of the Chainsaw Superstars in Sioux Falls, SD Monday night, but we can tell you the novel American Association doubleheader played in two stadiums in two different states within 11 hours may have disappointed virtually all of the fans. We are only kidding, of course.
It is just that the visiting team won each game. Sioux Falls scored twice in the ninth to prevail 3-1 over homestanding Sioux City, IA in the morning game. After traveling 85 miles to Sioux Falls the Explorers got revenge, pounding out 19 hits while gaining an 8-4 victory.
It was a great experiment. Now, if we can only get the chainsaw results.
