The first four Red Wings to bat in the fifth inning — Chris Rahl, Darin Mastroianni, Danny Santana and James Beresford — had singles, sparking the big frame.

Every Red Wing had a hit in the opener, with Mastroianni collecting three hits from the leadoff spot, including a double.

Eric Farris had a run-scoring double to right in the first inning, plating Dan Rohlfing.
