If the Belfast baseball team finds a way to sneak into the Class B North playoffs, it will look back on Wednesday's strong all-around performance — which included powerful, timely hitting and shutdown pitching — against Waldo County-rival Mount View as one of the season's key moments.

That is because the host Lions bested the Mustangs 11-1 in five innings on May 24 in an impressive effort. The outcome gave Belfast a sweep of the opponents' two games this season, as the Lions also won 5-1 to start the season in Thorndike.

In the Maine Principals' Association for Class B North, Belfast (5-9, 29.6875 points) is 13th and Mount View (4-9, 18.4375 points) 15th. Nokomis of Newport (12-2, 103.0469 points) is first in the 18-team region. The top 12 teams qualify for the playoffs.

On Wednesday, Garrett Hamlin's double off the center-field fence settled the matter, as he drove in the 11th and final run for the Lions in the fifth inning as the game ended via the 10-run rule.

The Lions grabbed the momentum early in the late-season affair with five runs in the first inning, followed by two in the second, third and fifth stanzas. Belfast finished with 13 hits and one error.

The Mustangs mustered one hit and committed one fielding miscue.

Grey Dinsmore, who tossed 55 pitchers (40 strikes), turned a complete-game effort for the Lions, as he finished with one hit, two walks and three strikeouts.

Kevin Richards (7 earned runs on 9 hits, walk in 2 2/3 innings) started and Theo Dodge (2 earned runs on 4 hits, walk, strikeout in 2 innings) worked in relief for Mount View. Richards finished with 45 pitches, 31 for strikes, and Dodge 34 pitches, 21 for strikes.

Keying the Lion offensive attack were Derrick Tyler (2 hits, 2 runs, 2 RBIs), Hamlin (hit, RBI), Dinsmore (hit, run), Zach Dyer (2 hits, 2 runs, 3 RBIs), Tristan Roberts (2 hits, run, RBI), Luke Hamlin (hit, 2 runs), Andrew Cross (2 hits, run), Tyler Bartlett (hit, 2 RBIs) and Skylar Perkins (hit, 2 runs).

Tyler, Roberts, Hamlin and Dyer rapped doubles, Bartlett a triple and Dyer a home run to lead the Lion power surge.

Storm Chauvin had the lone hit, and Dodge the only run, for the Mustangs.
