Windy City tied the score when Riley singled in the fourth and crossed the plate on a Larry Balkwill sacrifice fly.

The Boomers reclaimed the edge in the sixth inning, loading the bases on three infield singles before Schulze’s hit brought home two runs.

A Riley single and Max White RBI double the next inning brought the Bolts back to within one, but the Boomers distanced themselves once again with a Colon home run in the top of the seventh.

That’s when the ThunderBolts took over. They began the seventh inning with seven straight hits.
