The Schaumburg Boomers scored 13 runs on 16 hits Sunday and needed every one of them as they hung on for a 13-12 victory at Boomers Stadium.

The Boomers (48-26) relied on the heart of the batting order as four players combined for 14 of the 16 hits.

Chad Mozingo was a double shy of the cycle and led the way with a 5-for-6 day, including his 11th homer, a triple, 4 runs scored and 4 RBI. Second baseman Chase Fontaine had 4 hits, including his third double in just his fifth game.

Frank Pfister's 3-single performance pushed his team-leading average to .329, and Steve McQuail smacked his club-best 18th home run as part of his 4-RBI, 2-hit day.

Schaumburg took a 7-2 lead after two innings. The Boomers batted around in the first and scored 4 runs on 4 hits, including Mozingo's line-drive, 2-run homer to right field.

In the second, the Road Warriors scored twice, but the Boomers answered with 3 runs thanks to consecutive extra-base hits by Mozingo, McQuail and Fontaine.

The Boomers led the entire game, but at no point did a lead seem safe as the Road Warriors kept chipping away.

Wesley Jones finished 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored for the visitors, and Matt Wright went 2-for-4 effort with 3 runs scored and 3 RBI.

Sam Robinson earned the win in relief of Matt Kuna, who last 4 innings and allowed 6 runs on 10 hits.

Kirk Clark earned his first save for the Boomers with a perfect 1 innings. He has not allowed a run in his 6 innings with Schaumburg.
