The Schaumburg Boomers earned a second consecutive victory over the Evansville Otters with a 6-1 decision on Wednesday afternoon.
The Boomers claimed victory despite managing only four hits in the game. Ty Nelson opened the scoring with an RBI single, one of two hits in the game, to drive home Mark Nelson in the bottom of the second. Jordan Dean scored on a wild pitch in the third.

Kevin Brahney recorded the final four outs for his first save, leaving the tying run at third in the eighth. Michael Valadez provided some distance with a three-run two out double in the bottom of the eighth.
