Waldo County high school baseball and softball teams were in action Tuesday, May 20, a scenario which saw only two teams prevail on the diamond.

The Searsport and Mount View baseball squads both finished the day with victories, while the Searsport and Mount View softball squads — along with both the Belfast baseball and softball teams — came up short.

The Viking baseball team's 4-2 win over Sumner of East Sullivan was highlighted by pitcher Troy Reynolds, who tossed a no-hitter to lead Searsport to its sixth win.
