SAUGET, Ill. — The Schaumburg Boomers failed to hold a lead for the third time in as many games at Gateway, falling for the fifth straight time by a final of 6-3 on Saturday evening.
The Boomers struck for an unearned run in the first and built a 2-0 lead when Frank Pfister homered in the third. The homer was the 12th of the season for Pfister. Alex Rivers cruised through five shutout innings and left with the lead after allowing four hits with a pair of strikeouts.
Gateway clawed within a run at 2-1 in the seventh but Adam Tollefson left the tying run at third. The Grizzlies struck for five runs in the bottom of the eighth, taking advantage of an error to grab the lead. Schaumburg brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth after an RBI single from Jereme Milons but could not even the game. Chad Mozingo posted three hits for the Boomers.
Schaumburg continues a six-game road swing with the opener of a three-game series at Windy City on Sunday night at 5:05 p.m. RHP Cody Griebling (0-1, 2.84) will square off against RHP Tyson Corley. The Boomers (33-24) trail Windy City by 1.5 games in the West Division race.
