The Schaumburg Boomers rallied from a 2-0 deficit to record the fifth walk-off win of the season 3-2 over the River City Rascals when Michael Valadez singled home Sean Mahley in the bottom of the ninth.

River City posted single runs in the first and third against Boomers starter Cody Griebling. Griebling allowed just 1 earned run in 6 innings of work but did not factor in the decision. Brian McConkey homered in the fourth while Alexi Colon notched an RBI single in the fifth to plate Mahley with the tying run. Frank Pfister finished with three hits, falling a homer shy of the cycle. Clark Labitan collected the win out of the bullpen, his first as a pro, working 1.2 scoreless innings.
