The Schaumburg Boomers suffered another walk-off defeat at the hands of the Lake Erie Crushers on Sunday, losing 2-1 in 11 innings. The Crushers swept the three-game series.
Boomers pitcher Danny Jimenez made a solid return after missing the entire second half last season with an injury. Jimenez allowed 1 run on 4 hits in 5⅔ innings. Reliever Anthony Smith worked 2⅓s coreless innings. The Boomers' run came in the fourth when Ben Kline (2 hits) tripled and scored on Bobby Martin's sacrifice fly. The Crushers won in the 11th on a dribbler up the first-base line.
The Boomers continue their road trip against the Southern Illinois Miners at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday when they send right-hander Seth Webster against righty Tyler Lavigne.
