Wild Card Game Suspended
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. -The 2021 Frontier League Champion Schaumburg Boomers jumped out to a 5-0 lead at home, but the West Division Wild Card Game with the Evansville Otters had to be suspended due to a lighting issue.
The first four batters of the game all reached base for the Boomers in the bottom of the first following a 1-2-3 top of the frame from Shumpei Yoshikawa. Alec Craig dropped a single into right, Braxton Davidson walked, Chase Dawson deposited a bunt single and Mike Hart put the Boomers ahead 1-0 by pushing a single through the right side. Clint Hardy lifted a sacrifice fly to make the score 2-0 before a bunt single from William Salas capped the three-run first. Davidson hammered an opposite field homer after a 1-2-3 second to make the score 5-0 before the game was suspended due to a lighting issue. The contest will resume tomorrow at 1:00pm in the top of the third.
