SMITHFIELD — The Cumberland American All-Stars came into this R.I. Little League District IV Tournament winners’ bracket final with consecutive “mercy-rule” triumphs over rival Cumberland National and Burrillville.

In the latter tilt, skipper Dave Belisle’s crew clobbered nine extra-base hits and 17 in all to deliver a 19-0 pasting, that following a 10-0 victory over CNLL.

The key question on Monday night was this: Did Smithfield have enough offensive firepower to outduel CALL?

For an inning, the answer was yes. After that? Nope.

CALL erupted for 18 hits, seven for extra bags and three over the fence, and crushed the hosts, 11-3, before a hefty crowd of perhaps 200 at Deerfield Park’s DiNoble Field.
