The Schaumburg Boomers scored early and often Tuesday night in a 12-5 victory over the visiting Evansville Otters.

Welcoming back pitcher Charle Rosario, who missed 67 games with a head injury, the Boomers provided plenty of offense early to support their starter.

Schaumburg took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on an RBI double from Tony Delmonico. The Boomers extended the lead to 2-0 on an RBI single from Alexi Colon in the second.

Five runs scored in the third to break open the game. Mark Nelson opened the scoring with an RBI single. Schaumburg added 3 runs in the fourth and 2 in the fifth. Rosario worked 4⅔ innings in his return. Anthony Smith tossed 3⅓ scoreless innings to earn the win.

Seven batters picked up hits for the Boomers, who finished with 13. Justin Vasquez had 3 hits in his first 3 at-bats. Ty Nelson finished with 3 RBI. Schaumburg owns a league best 30-10 home record.

Schaumburg (45-31) continues the series Wednesday at 1 p.m. RHP Eddie Cody (4-1, 2.76) starts for the Boomers opposite LHP Jose Velez (1-2, 2.25).
