O'FALLON, Mo. -- Riding the best outing by a starter this season, the Schaumburg Boomers bounced back to topple the River City Rascals 8-2 and win the road series Thursday night.

The Boomers were able to strike in the first inning for the third consecutive game, nabbing a 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly from Chad Mozingo. The run was more than enough to support Mike Giovenco.
