AVON, Ohio -- The 2013 Frontier League champion Schaumburg Boomers opened their title defense with an 11-3 road loss to the Lake Erie Crushers on Friday night.

The Boomers quickly fell behind 3-0, but rallied to tie. Consecutive run-scoring infield singles from Michael Valadez and Sean Mahley (2 hits) in the fourth inning brought the Boomers within a run, and Brian McConkey evened the game with a fielder's choice in the fifth before the Crushers pulled away.
