Fightin’ Phils 2, RubberDucks 1

Storylines: Mark Mathias’ one-out base hit in the eighth broke up a no-hit bid by Reading Fightin’ Phils starter Ranfi Casimiro. It was the only hit for the Ducks.

Ducktails: Casimiro was perfect through six and still had a no-hitter after he walked Sam Haggerty and Tyler Krieger to open the seventh. Casimiro went 7⅓ innings, struck out six and walked three.

Next: The three-game series continues Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. at Canal Park. Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin will start for the RubberDucks. Right-hander Felix Paulino (1-0, 5.70) will go for the Fightin’ Phils.
