Rallying from down 3 runs, the Schaumburg Boomers swept the visiting River City Rascals with a 4-3 walk-off victory Sunday.

Steve McQuail collected his second game-winning hit of the series, coming to the plate following an intentional walk to Frank Pfister in the ninth inning.

McQuail roped a single down the left-field line to drive in Gerard Hall with the winning run. McQuail drove home all 4 runs, erasing a 3-0 deficit with a two-out, 3-run homer in the seventh. It was his 11th of the year, currently tied for the league lead.

River City opened a 3-0 lead with single runs in the first, second, and third innings against starter Matt Kuna, threw 6 innings in a no-decision. Dexter Price, the third reliever of the day, earned the win with a perfect ninth.

The Boomers finished with 10 hits, 3 from Hall and the 2 from McQuail.

The Boomers (27-19) played from behind in all three games. Schaumburg, who have 6 walk-off wins, finished the season series with River City by winning seven in a row, posting an 8-1 mark against the Rascals.

Schaumburg is off Monday before opening a three-game road series with the Rockford Aviators on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. Right-hander Seth Webster, signed Sunday, will make his pro debut for the Boomers opposite fellow righty Drew Rucinski (3-5, 2.54).
