RECAP: Otters season ends with narrow loss to Boomers.

The Evansville Otters season ended with a 3-1 loss in game four of the FLDS to the Schaumburg Boomers

Box Score

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.- The Evansville Otters 2017 season came to an end with a game four loss to the Schaumburg Boomers 3-1 in the Frontier League Division Series.

For the second straight night, Evansville managed just one run. The Otters also saw fielding struggles with two errors in their final game. In total, Evansville committed nine errors across the FLDS.

Schaumburg saw a dominant pitching performance from Joe Hauser. The Boomers starter threw a complete game allowing just five hits in nine innings. Hauser struck out 10 batters and did not issue a single walk. He also sat down 19 batters in a row not allowing a single baserunner in the third through the eighth. Evansville’s Hunter Ackerman recorded the loss.

The Otters got on the board first in the second inning. Alejandro Segovia led off the frame with a single. Zach Welz then hit an RBI double to give Evansville the 1-0 advantage.

Schaumburg answered back in the bottom half. Zach Weigel hit a single to lead off the Boomers side. When stealing second base, Otters catcher Kolten Yamaguchi threw the ball into centerfield allowing Weigel to third. An RBI single from Sean Godfrey scored Weigel to make it 1-1.

Then in the third, the Boomers would add the final runs of the game. An RBI single from Kyle Ruchim scored James Keller. Then on a groundout to second base, David Harris drove in Ruchim to make it 3-1.

Evansville threatened in the top of the ninth inning. Ryan Long led off with a single. Boomers second baseman Jack Parenty had a chance to turn a double play on a Josh Allen ground ball, but bobbled on the play and was able to only retire Allen as Long reached second.

Kolten Yamaguchi almost had his second hit of the night up the middle of the infield, but Parenty made a spectacular play for the second out but allowing Long to reach third. With the tying run Jeff Gardner at the plate, Harris made a diving play in right field to end the game and give the Boomers the series.
