Figga's slam carries X's past T-Bones
Sioux City Journal - Jul 2, 2003


EXPLORERS HAMMER T-BONES
Explorers Press Release - Jul 1, 2003
"The Sioux City Explorers picked up six runs in the third inning on their way to a 7-2 win in front of 1,681 fans at Lewis & Clark Park tonight. Mike Figga provided the biggest blow of the night when he stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the third inning and popped one over the fence for the X's first grand slam of the season that sent the X's to a 6-0 lead. T-Bones starting pitcher Erik Grunwald, who hadn't allowed an earned run all season wound up with the loss after giving up six earned runs in five innings of work."
