The Schaumburg Boomers reduced their magic number to 1 for the Frontier League playoffs with a 4-1 victory over the Rockford Aviators on Wednesday at Boomers Stadium.

The Boomers did not trail in the contest, building an early 3-0 lead. A groundout by Tony Delmonico in the first first scored Alexi Colon, and Mark Nelson followed that with an RBI single off Rockford starter Ryan Zimmerman, who threw a complete game in a losing effort. Gerard Hall drilled a solo homer leading off the second to provide the cushion for starter Cal Bowling. Bowling threw seven innings, allowing just 1 run.
