Fellowship Series Goes the Distance, Isengard Prevails
Wednesday, October 17th, 2040
Isengard Raiders won a nail-biting series against the Lothlorien Lumberjacks 4-3, wrapping up the Fellowship Series finale 4-1 at Orthanc Stadium.

Raiders third baseman Arwowyn Galindil was named the series MVP.

He batted .345, drove in 3 runs and scored 1 to lead Isengard into the next round of play.

"Arwowyn was real solid for us, real solid," said Raiders manager Golmazh Headgobber. "I normally say I'd like to have nine of him out there, but thankfully we got by with just one this time."

The Isengard Raiders don't know who they will face in the next round. They will play the winner of the Dunharrow Devils - Ravenhill Darkwings series. That series is tied at 3 games apiece. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes..
