On the verge of being swept and facing a red-hot Dunharrow Devils team, the Weathertop Witch Kings had a tough assignment. Vordor Gilmathien delivered.
The Witch Kings left fielder was unstoppable for the visitors, as he went 2 for 3 with a home run and 2 walks, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once in guiding his club to its first victory of the series, 6-4. Gilmathien, 30, was named player of the game for his efforts. The win means Weathertop now trails 3-1 in the best-of-7 series.
Marin Goldtearer helped his team jump on top from the get-go. His first time up in the top of the first, he cranked a 2-run double to give Weathertop a 2-0 lead.
“We lost,” Dunharrow manager Tika Dap said later. “We’ll deal with it. The series isn’t over.”
Game 5 is set to be played tomorrow at Dunharrow Field. Slated to start are Sorria Elrolinde Jr. for Weathertop and Lantai Lómebrildur for Dunharrow.
