Carlos Machorro replaced Webb in the seventh and gave up a two-run home run to Jared Walker, which gave Great Lakes a 4-2 lead. Dauri Moreta gave up two runs in the eighth on a home run by Gavin Lux, and Aaron Fossas allowed two runs in the ninth.
Dragons tales: Taylor Trammell had a good night at the plate but a bad night on the bases. He was thrown out after getting on base in the first and fourth innings, both times by Great Lakes right fielder Cody Thomas.
Trammell hit a ground ball in the first inning that went by Perez’s glove and safely reached first base, but he tried to go to second and was thrown out by Thomas.
He hit a double to right in the fourth inning and tried to reach third after Michael Beltre flied out to right. Thomas was quick to launch a throw after recording the flyout, and third baseman Jared Walker made a catch a second before Trammell slid into the base.
Trammell finished 1-for-3 with a walk.
On deck: Great Lakes and Dayton return to Fifth Third Field for the second game of a three-game series on Thursday. Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani will start for the Dragons in a rehab assignment against the Loons' Jordan Sheffield (2-7, 3.84).
DeSclafani will be the 33rd Reds player to make a rehab appearance in Dayton and the third pitcher this season. Tony Cingrani started in a game May 29, and Homer Bailey did the same June 14.
