Boomers Sweep Defending Champs

EVANSVILLE, IN — The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, capped a weekend road sweep of the defending Frontier League champion Evansville Otters with a 9-3 victory.

Schaumburg did not trail in the series and slowed a red hot Evansville offense to just nine runs and 21 hits over three games. Sean Godfrey singled home two runs with two outs in the top of the first to give the Boomers a 2-0 lead. The Boomers were able to win despite accumulating just seven hits in the contest, drawing eight walks.

Godfrey drove home three in the game and finished with three hits, a steal and two runs scored. Cosimo Cannella walked twice, scored twice and drove home a run. Michael Wood picked up the win in relief, allowing just one hit in four innings. Conrad Wozniak started and threw four innings.

The Boomers (44-21), who continue to lead the East Division with the best record in the league, open a seven-game homestand on Tuesday night against the Lake Erie Crushers, winners of five in a row, at 6:30 p.m. Make the Boomers part of your plans this season by calling (847) 461-FOWL (3695).
