After Lake Erie tied the score in the third, Ty Nelson delivered a 2-run single in the bottom half to put the Boomers ahead for good.

Clark Labitan recorded a key out with the bases loaded in the seventh to preserve a 1-run advantage before the bats erupted for 5 more runs in the seventh to put the game out of reach. Ty Nelson doubled home 2 and all-star Michael Valadez hit a 3-run double to complete the scoring.

Cal Bowling worked 5 innings to win for the first time since July 3, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits.

Valadez led an 11-hit attack with 3, including a pair of doubles. Ty Nelson recorded 4 RBI.

The sixth straight victory matched a franchise record winning streak. The Boomers, owners of the top home record in the league at 26-7, had never finished 6-0 on a homestand previously in franchise history.
