FARGO — Designated hitter Rymer Liriano had three hits and drove in two runs to lead the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks to a 6-5 victory against the Sioux City Explorers on Thursday in American Association baseball at Newman Outdoor Field.

The RedHawks (42-23) snapped a three-game losing streak with the victory with left-handed starter Peyton Wigginton earning the victory. Right-handed reliever Joe Jones earned the save as F-M won the final game of a three-game series with Sioux City.

“It certainly wasn’t a must win, but at the same time things were going south a little bit and for us to win a game like this was important," RedHawks manager Chris Coste said of the afternoon game played before 3,499 fans.

F-M next starts a three-game road series at 7:05 p.m. Friday, July 29, against the Lincoln Saltdogs.
