EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Windy City got three runs in the first inning off Evansville starter Hasten Freeman and that was enough, as the Thunderbolts beat the Otters 4-2 Wednesday in front of 1,906 at Bosse Field.

Evansville found some offense in the bottom of the fourth.
Chris Sweeney’s RBI single to left scored Alejandro Segovia and Xyruse Martinez singled in Christopher Riopedre later that inning to make the score 3-2.
