The Schaumburg Boomers split the first home doubleheader in franchise history, walking off with a 2-1 win in eight innings in Game 2 following a 7-0 loss in the opener to Evansville.

Steve McQuail provided the game-winning RBI with a sacrifice fly that scored Frank Pfister, who walked to open the eighth. McQuail had also recorded the game-winner Tuesday in the 12th with the first walk-off homer in Boomers history. The win halted a three-game skid for the Boomers (9-7), who are 4-0 in extra-inning games this season, and snapped Evansville's six-game winning streak.


The Boomers' Chris Phelan received a spot start in the nightcap and worked into the sixth. The rookie did not allow a hit until the fifth. Reliever Dexter Price earned the win with 2 perfect innings, striking out three. McQuail and Brian McConkey each collected 2 hits.

Evansville's Ryan Zamorsky threw a complete game 7-inning shutout in the opener. Zamorsky did not allow a hit until Craig Hertler singled with two outs in the fifth. The lefty struck out four and has not allowed a run in 16 innings as a starter this season. The Otters took a 2-0 lead against starter Danny Jimenez in the third and padded the lead with 3 runs in the fourth.

The Boomers are off today before hitting the road to open a three game series against the River City Rascals on Tuesday outside St. Louis Right-hander Cody Griebling (1-1, 5.06) will start for the Boomers against righty Tommy Mendoza (1-2, 5.17).
