Amity’s alive and well and Xavier almost East Havened Fairfield Prep. Allow me to explain. Here’s what caught my eye:
ALMOST: On April 25, Xavier nearly blew a 10-run lead to East Haven as the Yellow Jackets scored nine runs in the seventh inning. On Wednesday, the Falcons staged their own rally in a loss to Fairfield Prep. Going into the seventh down 11-1, the Falcons scored seven runs but ultimately lost 11-8.
WELCOME BACK: Amity has turned its 0-3 start into a thing of the past, going 9-2 since the slump. The Spartans blanked a talented East Haven team 7-0 and has won four in a row heading into the final two weeks of the regular season.
