From STAFF REPORTS

The unlucky number for St. Francis isn’t 13 like it is for most people.

It’s been the number 6, as in the sixth inning.

In a 24-hour period, St. Francis has now lost a pair of games against Mission League power Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks) thanks to sixth inning troubles.

It’s only two games into league play and the Golden Knights have given up a combined 10 sixth inning runs and watched late-inning leads evaporate.

Notre Dame scored 7 runs in the sixth inning Tuesday, and they defeated St. Francis, 11-7.

The Golden Knights Achilles heel continues to be their inability to find the strike zone.

Notre Dame collected just 7 hits, but they drew an incredible 17 walks in aiding their victory.

Tanner Tomko had a solid effort on the mound, and left with a 5-4 lead.

Matthew Odom went 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and two RBIs.

Aaron Treloar went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI.

St. Francis and Notre Dame will conclude their three-game series today (Wednesday) at 3:30.

Box Score:
SF: 1-0-0-0-4-0-0-(5)
ND: 2-1-0-0-

Records:
St. Francis (1-5, 0-2); Notre Dame (7-0, 2-0)
