CRESTWOOD, IL -- The Schaumburg Boomers rallied from a 2-0 hole to pull a little closer in the East Division race after notching a 10-4 win over the Windy City ThunderBolts on the road Tuesday night.

Quincy Nieporte tied the game with an RBI double and Clint Hardy handed the Boomers the lead at 4-2 with his seventh homer of the year. After Windy City evened the game in the seventh, Nieporte doubled home the winning run in the eighth and the Boomers tacked on five in the ninth to account for the final.

Jack Parenty and Gian Martellini also logged multiple hits. Dylan Stutsman grabbed the win in relief. Connor Reed left with the lead after five innings, striking out four.
