The Orioles (16-4) put up five runs in both the third and fourth innings after falling behind 2-1 in the third and LeBlanc didn't allow a runner past first base over the final four innings.
It was the third trip to the title game in four years for Somersworth (14-6) and the Hilltopers have gone home as runners-up each time. Somersworth lost to Campbell in the 2011 championship game and to Winnisquam in 2010.
Drew Colbert struggled with his control in the third and the Orioles capitalized.
