TRAVERSE CITY, MI – The Traverse City Beach Bums’(40-51) offense couldn’t get started against the Schaumburg Boomers(39-54), as they fell in final home game on Thursday night, by a final score of 4-1.

In the fifth, Jordan Dean hit an RBI single to right field, scoring Nick Oberg, who doubled to start the inning. After Dean stole second and reached third on an error, Mark Nelson drove him home with an RBI to give Schaumburg a three run lead.
