“Electrifying.”

That was the word being used to describe the pitching of senior right-hander Duncan Marsten on Wednesday. He struck out the first six batters he faced with a fastball reaching 97 mph. He struck out 10 in six innings without allowing any hits. He also had a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning of Harvard-Westlake’s 2-1 Mission League win over Sierra Canyon.

Marsten has shown he’s completely recovered from a back injury and Tommy John surgery that left him not playing for two years. Now he has become a legitimate first-round draft prospect. He needed to be at his best because Sierra Canyon pitcher Ethan Montes matched him for five innings.

In the seventh, Sierra Canyon got its first hit, an RBI double by Michael Johnson off closer Bryce Rainer. Two walks by Rainer gave Sierra Canyon a chance to tie the game, but he struck out the final two batters for the save.

“Wow. What a performance,” coach Jared Halpert said. “Just the culmination of all the work that young man has put in. He’s got a healthy body and a wonderful opportunity.”

Sherman Oaks Notre Dame 4, Loyola 3: The Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win on a walk-off double by Dominic Cadiz in the seventh. Levi Sterling had two hits and struck out nine in six innings after giving up three runs in the first.

Crespi 5, Chaminade 3: Landon Hodge had two RBIs and Diego Velasquez struck out three in two scoreless innings of relief for Crespi.

St. Francis 10, Bishop Alemany 8: Jonathan Alvarez had four hits for Alemany in a Mission League defeat.
