Y'alls Drop First Game of Divisional Round Versus Boomers
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - In Game One of the Frontier League's Divisional round matchup against Schaumburg, the Boomers scored two runs in the first inning, and the Y'alls had no offense to counter the early scoring in a 5-1 loss Tuesday night at Wintrust Field.
Schaumburg takes a 1-0 lead in the Midwestern Division matchup. The Boomers wasted jumping out to a lead in their quest for a series advantage with two runs in the first inning thanks to RBI hits by Quincy Nieporte and Braxton Davidson. Only one of the runs charged to starting pitcher Jared Cheek was earned due to an error earlier in the inning.
The Boomers tacked on another run in the fourth inning on a Brett Milazzo fielder's choice to take a 3-0 advantage. Schaumburg put the nails in the coffin with two more runs in the sixth inning to take a decisive 5-0 lead. Florence committed two more errors in the sixth, so both runs were unearned though Nick Oddo still recorded an RBI for the Boomers.
The only run the Y'alls could muster came in the seventh inning. With runners on first and third, Jordan Brower grounded back to the pitcher, Kyle Arjona, and Arjona elected to go to second base to try and turn two. Only one out was recorded, and Harrison DiNicola scored from third to pull within four.
Arjona dazzled for Schaumburg, allowing just that one run in seven-plus innings. He struck out eight and allowed six hits. Cheek lasted five innings for the Y'alls and allowed three runs (two earned). He fanned seven in the losing effort.
The Y'alls only managed six hits with DiNicola and Andres Rios recording two apiece. The 3-4-5 batters in the order went a combined 0-12 with four strikeouts. Davidson had three hits for Schaumburg, and Nieporte had two knocks. Jack Snyder pitched the final two innings with two strikeouts to close the door.
The Y'alls look to even the series tomorrow, Wednesday, September 15, before heading back to Florence at the end of the week. Johnathon Tripp takes the hill for Florence versus Geoff Bramblett. First pitch at Wintrust Field is set for 6:30p CT.
