NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —If there has been a thorn in the North Adams SteepleCats side so far this season, that thorn would have to be runners left on base.

The SteepleCats headed down to Newport, RI Friday night, hoping to capture their first win and gain some momentum moving forward, but the Newport Gulls had planned otherwise, shutting out the Cats 8-0 and holding the team to just four hits with eleven runners left on base.

This was the third straight game the SteepleCats utilized four pitchers throughout the contest. Stanley Vargas of New England College made his first start of the season on the hill for North Adams, tossing 3.2 innings and giving up seven of Newport’s fifteen

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —It was déjà vu for the SteepleCats Tuesday night, as early opposing team offense and pitching put the game just out of reach.

​Fans flocked to Joe Wolfe Field last night for the home opener of the SteepleCats season and were greeted by a great baseball environment to enjoy a game, but also nine Nighthawks runs through the first four innings, leading to a 10-4 win for Upper Valley.

The home team was hindered by errors on the field and eleven runners left on base as it was an uphill battle ever since Upper Valley got two runs across the plate in the first. Three Nighthawks were able to gather three hits each of the team’s thirteen, while
