The Florence Freedom erupted for 15 runs during the first four innings Thursday night and coasted to a 17-2 win over the Windy City Thunderbolts at UC Health Stadium.

Jordan Brower homered and drove in four runs for the Freedom, who swept the three-game series with Windy City. Keivan Berges and Craig Lepre each added three RBI as Florence collected 17 hits and hammered five home runs en route to the easy victory.

The Freedom scored five times in the first inning as Brower hit a solo homer and Lepre later added a three-run shot. Florence extended the lead to 10-0 in the second inning as Brower swatted a two-run double.

Brower and Berges both scored three runs, while Jacob Wark added three hits and two RBI. Austin Wobrock was 3-for-5 and scored twice, and teammate Xavier Turner was 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI.

Florence starting pitcher Chuck Weaver went seven innings and allowed two runs, striking out seven and scattering four hits.

The Freedom are back in action at 7:05 p.m. Friday, hosting the Schaumburg Boomers.
