CLEBURNE, Texas (June 16, 2019) – Taylor Jordan struck out 12 over seven scoreless innings, and the Sioux City Explorers shut out the Cleburne Railroaders 4-0 on Sunday night at The Depot. The game was called after eight innings due to rain.
Jordan (2-4) allowed just four hits, three of which were singles. Cleburne (13-16) got just one runner to third base for the evening, courtesy of a Chase Simpson double and a wild pitch in the fourth inning.
Nefi Ogando (0-3) matched Jordan pitch-for-pitch through five innings, keeping the game scoreless with six strikeouts. Nate Samson broke the deadlock with a one-out solo homer, then a wild pitch with two outs scored Drew Stankiewicz.
The Explorers (14-16) added two more in the top of the seventh on a two-run home run from Kyle Wren.
Conner Dotson made his professional debut in the top of the eighth, working around a one-out walk to post a scoreless frame.
