Scoring was starting pitcher Tanner Cheek, who hit a one-out double down the left-field line.
Post 10 tied it with a run in the bottom half and added two runs on three hits in the second inning.
Head coach Chip Gordon said make up dates for both games against Post 10 are still to be decided at the time of publication.
Hamlet is 3-3 this season and its next scheduled game is June 16 against Wilmington Post 10 Patriots. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Memorial Park.
