Shelton High defeated Xavier of Middletown, 4-2, at Riverview Park on Thursday. Coach Scott Gura\u2019s ball club came back from a 2-0 first-inning deficit with three runs in the fourth and a single tally in the sixth. \u201cWe had good pitching after the first,\u201d Gura said. \u201cJustin Barbato settled in and Xavier only had one base runner after the first. We stress quality at bats and as a team we did that late in the game. When you put the ball in play, anything can happen.\u201d Shelton took advantage of two Xavier errors to score four unearned runs. Barbato pitched the first five innings to earn the win. Justin Hafele came on in the sixth to get the saves. Matt Hunyadi and Terrence O\u2019Sullivan had two hits each to lead a seven-hit attack.
