Notre Dame-Fairfield was caught in another close game, St. Joseph was caught in a unfamiliar position and a Shelton player did something that had only been done twice in the last 12 years. Don’t get caught napping, here’s what caught my eye.
Third times the charm – Shelton’s Eric Christensen became the third Gael in the last 12 years to go 5-for-5 in a game. In Shleton’s 11-4 win over Cheshire he also had four RBIs.
Shut ‘em down – Stratford’s Axel DeJesus twirled a complete game shutout in a 5-0 win over rival Bunnell on Wednesday. It was Stratford’s first win of the season.
McMahon up – St. Joseph suffered its first loss of the season, 6-3 to McMahon. The Cadets (6-1, 4-1, FCIAC) gave up 11 hits and had a season-high four errors.
High-25 – Masuk and ND-Fairfield combined for 25 runs and 26 hits in a seven inning battle royale that would make any pitcher want to ice down his arm. Masuk won 13-12 but, had to use four pitchers to do it. The Lancers used four as well.
