Washington became the first visiting team to win a series at Boomers Stadium this season, opening a 3-0 lead in the first on 4 singles. The Wild Things tacked on 2 runs in the fourth and 3 in the seventh against starter Hunter Ackerman to lead 8-0. Ackerman worked 6⅓ innings in the loss.

Schaumburg came roaring back in the seventh, scoring 6 runs. The Boomers mustered just 2 hits in the inning, taking advantage of 4 walks and an error.

Michael Valadez and Jordan Dean drew consecutive bases-loaded walks to open the scoring. Alexi Colon notched a 2-run single, and Joe De Pinto drove in a run on a groundout. Schaumburg put the tying runs on base in the eighth but could not tie the game.

Schaumburg (41-30) will conclude the series with Washington on Friday night in a Bacon Bonanza that features postgame fireworks. RHP Eddie Cody (3-1, 2.95) starts for the Boomers, while Washington counters with RHP Troy Marks (3-0, 0.92).
