Gilbert earned its second victory of the season behind a sixth inning rally against Shepaug to defeat the Spartans 7-6. The Yellowjackets’ Danny LaChance hit a two RBI go-ahead double which was all the insurance Pepe Napoleon needed to close out the game. Napoleon pitched 2 2/3 innings of relief and earned the victory. Gilbert starting pitcher Cam Goulet pitched 5 2/3 striking out eight. Ryan Sholtis went 1-for-2 with a triple and two RBI. Shepaug’s Clayton Schneider went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI. Wes Meeker went 2-for-3 with an RBI and one run scored. Gilbert is 2-15, Shepaug is 6-11.
