A five-run 3rd did the trick as the Red Wings dropped their tenth straight game, 7-4 to the RailRiders. MLB Rehab Will Harris “worked on some stuff” for a home run in the top of the 1st, which was “good enough” for the loss. Donovan Casey singled twice and scored a run while Dee Strange-Gordon walked and singled in his return.
Roster moves: RHP Cory Abbott recalled to Washington; UT Dee Strange-Gordon reassigned from the FCL.

Jake Irvin went the first five and allowed the first three RubberDuck runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out five. Francys Peguero took the loss, his fourth, as he was unable to work around an error to lead off the 8th inning. Omar Meregildo and Israel Pineda hit back-to-back HRs in the 7th while Wilson Garcia tied it at 3-3 with a two-out single in the 8th, which would be the fifth and final hit for the Sens.
