What started as a slugfest, morphed into a pitching and ultimately turned into a dramatic finish as the Palo Alto 13s All-Stars walked off with a 6-5 win over Redwood City in the District 52 Intermediate championship game Thursday night at Morton Park.

The Intermediate Division is for 13-year-old players with a diamond configuration of 70-foot basepaths and 50-foot distance from the mound to the plate.
