Boomers even series with win in Traverse City

TRAVERSE CITY — Ten-four is commonly followed by “Good buddy.”

Not Wednesday for Traverse City.

The Schaumburg Boomers racked up 16 hits and took advantage of several Traverse City Beach Bums miscues to take a 10-4 decision to even their series after TC won 10-2 Tuesday.

“They played better than we did,” Beach Bums manager Gregg Langbehn said. “You don’t deserve to win when you play like that. But we’re playing pretty doggone good this year and we’re allowed have a hiccup every now and then.

“We didn’t play as well we have. That’s all there is to it.”

Scott Dunn mowed down the Boomers Tuesday, but they were able to bring their bats alive Wednesday against TC’s Jake Sabol.

Traverse City’s three errors ties for the most in a game this season — and two of those led directly to four Schaumburg runs.

Aside from Alexi Colon’s solo homer in the fifth, each inning in which Schaumburg scored was aided by an error, a wild pitch or passed ball.

“We’ve got to take advantage of situations like that, because we’re going to have days like (Tuesday) where we’re not hitting the ball well,” Boomers manager Jamie Bennett said. “And when you get those opportunities, you’ve got to jump on them.

“We had some opportunities (Tuesday). We had the bases loaded with one out in a 4-2 game and didn’t get anything done. It’s still 4-2 and they get two runners on with two outs and hit a home run. Things like that can obviously change a game quick.”

“He left a few pitches up and they’re an aggressive-hitting team,” Langbehn said. “They swing early in the count, and you have to account for that. He’s fine. It’s just a matter of location, not stuff. It was just one of those nights where everything fell apart for us.”
