Special to the Daily Herald

The Schaumburg Boomers opened a nine-game homestand on a down note, dropping a 5-1 decision to the East Division-leading Washington Wild Things in 10 innings Wednesday night. Three of the four meetings between these two teams have gone into extra innings.

Offense was hard to find against two of the Frontier Leagues' top pitchers. The Boomers took a 1-0 lead with an unearned run in the fourth against ERA leader Zac Fuesser when Michael Valadez reached base on an error. The Wild Things tied the score in the fifth against Seth Webster, who worked 8 innings and allowed just that run. The Wild Things scored 4 in the 10th to grab the victory.

Tony Delmonico had 2 hits for the Boomers (41-29), who own a league-best 26-8 home record but saw a six-game winning streak snapped at Boomers Stadium.

The series continues today at 6:30 p.m. when the Boomers send left-hander Hunter Ackerman (3-2, 4.91 ERA) against righty Scott Dunn (5-3, 2.99),
