EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- The Schaumburg Boomers failed to hold three different leads as the Evansville Otters rallied to a 9-8 decision in 10 innings.

Starter Hunter Ackerman carried a no-hit bid into the sixth as he retired the first nine batters of the game and recorded five consecutive strikeouts at one point. The no-hitter ended on a two-run homer in the sixth. Evansville added two in the seventh to grab a 4-3 lead. Ackerman worked six innings and struck out seven while allowing just two runs on two hits.

Bobby Martin drilled a three-run homer in the eighth, his second homer of the night, to hand Schaumburg a momentary 6-4 advantage. The Otters evened the game with two in the ninth to force extras. The Boomers plated a pair in the eighth to snatch an 8-6 lead. The go ahead run crossed on a sacrifice fly from Alexi Colon. Evansville responded in the bottom of the inning, scoring three and sealed the win on a two-out single. Martin finished with three hits, three runs scored, and four RBIs for the Boomers. Tyler Sciacca also added three hits.
