NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — This has been a very good week for Joe Porricelli as he made the NECBL honor roll with his hot bat and terrific glove. Continuing his hitting streak, Porricelli went 3-4 with a double in the SteepleCats game against the Valley Blue Sox on Thursday.

Jackson Coutts is still leading the league in batting average, on base percentage and total hits, hitting .474 with a .500 OBP. Coutts is also third in OPS among the NECBL with a 1.158.

Chris Cepeda had a strong outing against Sanford shutting them out over seven innings and striking out five. Cepeda leads the team in innings pitched with 32.
