The Boomers responded with 2 runs in the bottom half on an RBI single from Chad Mozingo and a passed ball and brought the tying run to the plate but could pull no closer in the inning.

Joe Parsons took the loss, pitching 6 innings and allowing 8 runs.

The loss halted a franchise best six-game home winning streak. The game also brought to an end a Boomers streak of five straight with 6 or more runs scored.
