Walk-off walk beats St. Francis 6-5

Things were looking pretty bleak on a cloudy Monday for host Sherman Oaks Notre Dame in its Mission League baseball opener against St. Francis.

Chris Stamos was in complete control, holding Notre Dame to two hits through five innings. An RBI single by Brendan Durfee and a two-run single by Mikey Kane gave St. Francis a 5-1 lead.

But Stamos was pulled after his 104th pitch and giving up a leadoff walk in the top of the sixth. St. Francis never recovered. Notre Dame ended up getting three bases loaded walks over the final two innings to pull out a 6-5 victory.
