SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - The Schaumburg Boomers posted early season highs in runs and hits to improve to 5-0 on the young season with a 9-1 victory over the Tri-City ValleyCats on Tuesday night at Wintrust Field.

Schaumburg opened the scoring in the bottom of the second. Ryan McCarthy tripled off the wall in right and scored on a two-out opposite field double from Brett Milazzo. The second inning tally marked the first of five consecutive frames with a run. After Tri-City tied the game in the third, Seth Gray pounded a three-run homer down the line in right to hand the Boomers a 4-1 advantage. The homer was his first of the year.

Alec Craig knocked home a run with a single in the fourth while Kyle Fitzgerald and Tyler Depreta-Johnson both knocked home runs in the fifth. Gray added another RBI as two more scored in the sixth to account for the final.
