The right-handed hitter totaled 10 hits on the week for a .455 average with two homers, a double and nine RBIs. Nieporte notched three multi-hit games during the week including a three-hit showing on June 3 at Joliet. The second-year member of the Boomers homered in back-to-back games against Evansville on June 4 and 5.
