Christian Lara and Michael Pericht homered, and the Great Lakes Loons survived late rallies in the eighth and ninth innings to defeat the Dayton Dragons Thursday night, 4-3.
The Loons record is now a season-best 10 games over .500 (25-15) and gives the Loons a series win over Dayton.
The Loons return to Dow Diamond Friday to start a four-game against the South Bend Silver Hawks.
Friday's game will feature the Loons first Fireworks Loontacular of the season.
