Boomers Shutout in Second Straight
CRESTWOOD, IL — The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, were shutout by the Windy City ThunderBolts for a second consecutive night, dropping a 3-0 decision on the road Thursday to lose two-of-three in the series.
Both teams traded chances early as the Boomers posted hits in the first four innings, but Windy City struck for the only offense in the fifth. Michael Mateja drilled a three-run homer for the only scoring of the contest. Schaumburg starter Aaron Rozek worked seven innings and walked one while striking out six but took the loss. Chase Dawson finished with two hits in the loss.
