Several high school baseball and softball teams in Knox, Waldo and part of Lincoln county appeared to be in a hurry to get home Thursday afternoon, April 25, with three of the four games involving those squads taking a mere five innings to complete via the mercy rule.

The Mount View and Camden Hills baseball teams, along with the Medomak Valley softball squad, were the beneficiaries of the mercy rule Thursday, while the Windjammer softball team prevailed in a tight, one-run affair.

The Mount View baseball team earned a 13-0 win in five innings over Medomak Valley, while the Panther softball team emerged victorious 21-1, also in five innings, over the Mustangs in a pair of games in Waldoboro.

The Windjammer baseball and softball teams also emerged victorious, with the baseball team blanking the Lions 10-0 and the Windjammer softball team coming away with a 7-6 win in a pair of games in Belfast.
