The Schaumburg Boomers dropped an extra-inning game for the third time this season as the visiting Florence Freedom collected an 8-5 victory Wednesday night.

The Boomers rallied from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead with 4 runs in the seventh inning. Chad Mozingo plated the first run for Schaumburg with an RBI double in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 14 games, matching the second longest in team history.

Bobby Martin registered a 2-run triple to tie the game in the seventh, scoring Ty Nelson and Sean Mahley. Mozingo would put the Boomers in front with an RBI single and Steve McQuail capped the rally with an RBI single as well.

Florence evened the game with a pair of two-out unearned runs in the ninth and added 3 in the 10th to account for the final scoring.
