NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- With five games left in its New England Collegiate Baseball League season, North Adams is a half game out of first place in its division.
 
On Wednesday at Joe Wolfe Field, Jon Kozarian went 3-for-4 at the plate and Charles Middleton drove in a pair of runs as the SteepleCats defeated first-place Keene, 4-2, to move within half a game of the Northern Division leaders.
 
Camden Lovrich and Jake Cubbler combined to allow just one earned run and strike out 11 in the win.
 
Cubbler struck out seven and allowed just two hits over five innings to earn the win in relief.
 
In the bottom of the fifth, JuJuan Lacewell-Cason singled to drive in Benjamin Werkheiser to break a 2-2 tie.
 
Lacewell-Cason later scored on a Kozarian single to give the 'Cats a two-run cushion.
 
North Adams (21-14-2) travels to face Upper Valley on Thursday evening. The SteepleCats play four of their remaiing five games on the road; they will be home on Friday against Keene at 6:30 p.m.
