The host Schaumburg Boomers treated an Independence Day crowd of 7,178 to a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the Normal CornBelters in Frontier League action Friday.

Trailing 4-0, the Boomers collected 5 straight hits in the sixth inning. Gerard Hall opened the scoring with an RBI double, Ty Nelson had an RBI single and Michael Valadez delivered a sacrifice fly. Alexi Colon tied the game with a single, and the go-ahead run scored on an error. Brian McConkey added insurance with an RBI single in the seventh.

Kris Singh earned the win in his professional debut in relief of starter Eddie Cody, who worked 5 innings. Dexter Price pitched the ninth for his second save in as many nights and 10th of the year. The comeback was the largest of the season for the Boomers, who finished with 12 hits. Tyler Sciacca, Hall, and McConkey each had 2 hits.

The Boomers continue their homestand today at 6 p.m. when they send lefty Hunter Ackerman (1-0, 2.59 ERA) against lefty Matt Packer (0-0, 0.00).
