OLD ORCHARD BEACH — Medomak Valley had a tough debut on the diamond at the state Little League 11- and 12-year-old baseball tournament on Saturday, July 24 as it faced District 5 champion Augusta.

The District 2 champions, who won the district title by default, were shut out on the scoreboard and in the hit column in a game Augusta needed only four innings to wrap.

Medomak had a handful of defensive miscues that, coupled with a boatload of Augusta hits, saw it come up on the short end of an 11-0 loss by mercy rule at Staples Memorial Field.

In the early game on Saturday, District 6 champion Cumberland bested Calais 6-0.

District 4 champion Saco and District 3 champion Bangor round out the six-team field.

Augusta was led at the plate by Noyes (single, 2 runs), Lindquist (2 doubles, 3 runs), Hreden (single, run), Lajoie (single), Odom (single, run), Stevenson (single, run), Fifield (run), Chamberlin (single, run) and Bucknam (single, run).

Wellman and Hood toed the mound for Medomak as the duo allowed nine hits and two walks, with two strikeouts. Hreden went the distance and tossed a no-hitter for Augusta as he walked the first batter of the game and struck out seven.

Augusta plated a run in the first inning, three in the second and seven in the third, which began in the first when Lindquist doubled to deep right and scored on an error.

Medomak looked to get out of the inning quickly in the second after retiring the first two batters, but Augusta had its next three batters reach — and score — to take a 4-0 lead.

Bucknam rapped a two-out single and Noyes drew a walk before both moved into scoring position on a wild pitch. Lindquist then belted a two-run double to deep left and later scored on an error.

Augusta pulled away with a seven-run frame in the third.
