Boomers 3 Bolts 2

SCHAUMBURG, IL – The Schaumburg Boomers scored three unanswered runs to erase an early ThunderBolts lead and take game one of a three game series 3-2 at Boomers Stadium Friday night.

The ThunderBolts (12-7) got on the board in the second inning as Larry Balkwill hit his second home run of the week and third of the season to go ahead 1-0.

The Bolts added another run in the third. Coco Johnson doubled, stole third and scored on an error to double the lead.

Schaumburg (14-5) answered with a run in the bottom of the third. Alex Fink and Jack Parenty each singled to put two on base in front of Kyle Ruchim, who singled home Fink. Both Parenty and Ruchim were thrown out on the bases on the play, but the run counted to make the score 2-1.

A Seth Spivey double and Sean Godfrey RBI single in the fourth tied it at two.

Kenny Towns went deep for the Boomers in the sixth inning to put Schaumburg on top for the first time at 3-2.
