SCHAUMBURG, IL - The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, dropped a 2-1 decision to the Joliet Slammers in the opener of a homestand on Tuesday night.

Schaumburg struggled against Joliet starter Daren Osby, who tossed six shutout frames.

The Boomers nabbed a 1-0 lead in the seventh on a two-out RBI infield single from Jimmy Galusky, plating Connor Oliver, who walked to open the frame.
