Shiloh's Carson Fries drilled a two-run homer to back the complete-game pitching of Chad Schmuck on Tuesday evening in Shiloh's 4-2 Central Baseball League victory at Manchester.
Schmuck blanked the home team for the first five innings before Andy Clemens delivered a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth.
Shiloh, meanwhile, broke a scoreless tie by scoring a run on an error in the top of the fourth. It increased the advantage to 2-0 on Jerrin Toomey's RBI single in the fifth and made it 4-0 when Fries went deep in the sixth.
Schmuck struck out six and walked five. Manchester pitcher Jason Kelly recorded seven strikeouts while not issuing a single walk. Two of the runs that Kelly yielded were unearned.
Clemens was the game's only multiple hitter with a 2-for-3 performance.
