Ryan Christenson pitched an excellent game but was charged with the loss as the Great Lakes Loons fell to the Dayton Dragons 6-0.
Christenson had an impressive night on the hill and entered the game on a four-game winning streak, in which he had allowed only three earned runs through 25 innings for a 1.08 ERA.
On Tuesday, the southpaw collected nine strikeouts to tie for a career-high while limiting Dayton to two hits through six plus innings.
The Loons will play game two of their three-game series against the Dayton Dragons Wednesday.
