The Schaumburg Boomers earned their 60th win of the regular season, rallying past the Normal CornBelters 4-2 on Wednesday to set a team record for wins.

A pitcher's duel throughout, Normal opened the scoring with a single run in the top of the fifth against Schaumburg starter Eddie Cody. The 1-0 lead held until Alexi Colon hit his 11th homer of the season over the wall in right in the bottom of the seventh, a three-run shot with Gerard Hall and Michael Valadez aboard.

Cody worked seven innings to earn his eighth win of the year, striking out six. Mark Nelson added a solo homer in the eighth and Dexter Price collected his 21st save.

Schaumburg, which posted a 39th home win, won despite accumulating just 4 hits. Hall notched a single to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, a team record.

Schaumburg (60-35) closes out the regular season on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with Fan Appreciation Night. The Boomers remain tied for first in the West and need a win coupled with a River City loss to claim the division title.
