At Rockland, Kennebunk capitalized on four innings of no-hit pitching from Olivia Howe, and five Hermon errors to eliminate Hermon and advance to Friday’s championship round in the state tourney with the four-inning mercy-rule victory.
Bailey Cain sparked Kennebunk’s offense with a deep RBI double to left center that drove in two of its six third-inning runs. Cain also walked and scored in the fourth.
Howe silenced Hermon’s bats for four innings, striking out six and walking two.
Kennebunk lost in its first game of the tournament Saturday, and rebounded to win three games in a row to earn a bid in the championship round.
Kennebunk will face undefeated Scarborough on Friday at 3 p.m. in Rockland in the state championship round of the double-elimination tournament.
A Kennebunk win would force a second game, which would begin 30 minutes after the completion of the first game. A Scarborough win in either game would give Kennebunk its second loss and clinch the state title for Scarborough.
The state champion advances to the Little League East Region Tournament starting July 19 in Bristol, Conn.
Hermon 000 0 — 0 0 5
Kennebunk 026 2 — 10 3 1
