The Schaumburg Boomers scored 8 runs in the first inning and erased a five-game losing streak with a 10-1 victory over the host Evansville Otters on Sunday.

The Boomers sent 13 men to the plate in the first inning and had just 3 hits but took advantage of 5 walks, an error and a hit batter to take the big advantage.

Jordan Dean capped the scoring with the only hit that produced a run in the first, a 2-run double in his second at bat of the inning.

Justin Vasquez opened the scoring with an RBI walk. Ty Nelson, Bobby Martin, Brian McConkey and Jared Martin also drove home runs in the first.

Ty Nelson connected on his first professional homer in the ninth to finish the scoring. Dean, Mark Nelson, and Ty Nelson each had 2 hits.

Starting pitcher Seth Webster did the rest on the mound. Webster carried a shutout into the ninth. The second year Boomer recorded 12 consecutive outs from the second through the sixth and did not allow more than one runner to reach until the eighth.

Webster struck out five and allowed just an unearned run in the ninth while improving to 3-2 on the season.

Schaumburg is back at home Tuesday to begin a six game stretch through the Fourth of July weekend. The Boomers (21-18) own one of the best home records in the league. LHP Danny Jimenez (2-2, 4.14) will start the opener with the Joliet Slammers, who have not announced a starter for the 6:30 p.m. game.
