Special to the Daily Herald

The Schaumburg Boomers scored early and often on the way to a rain shortened 11-0 win over the River City Rascals in O'Fallon, Mo., on Wednesday night.

Schaumburg got a 2-run double from Steve McQuail and added a single run in the second on a sacrifice fly from Sean Mahley. That was more than enough for Robby Donovan, who worked 5 shutout innings, surrendering 4 hits with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts.

The Boomers provided plenty of insurance with a 7-run fourth, chasing starter Justin Sarratt. The Boomers sent 12 men to the plate and got 2-run singles from McQuail, Drew Heithoff, and Jereme Milons.

The Boomers (43-31) posted 12 hits in the contest, which was shortened to seven innings. Storms were threatening through most of the night but the skies finally opened in the top of the eighth, forcing the end of the contest.

McQuail drove in 5 runs, the most in a game by a Boomers player this season, and Mahley had 3 hits.
