Malachi Duka and Nate Reinhart combined for a shutout for the Indians, with Duka giving up just a pair of hits and striking out 10 in six innings of work before Reinhart shut Phoenixville out in the top of the seventh.

Mike Memmo tossed a complete game for Phoenixville, striking out seven and allowing just one walk. He was perfect before Barker’s first single in the fifth.
