WASHINGTON, Pa. -- The Schaumburg Boomers built a 6-0 lead and held off the Washington Wild Things 6-3 to win on the road Saturday night, stopping a brief two-game slide.

Sean Mahley, All-Star Game MVP on Wednesday at Washington, roped a triple into the right-field corner to bring home Frank Pfister with the first run in the top of the second. Mahley scored moments later on a groundout by Ty Nelson.
