Misty Mountain defeated Dead Marshes today 6-4 and took some of the joy out of Thraryn *Samarkand’s 300th career home run.
“I just wanted to get a good swing on the ball all day,” *Samarkand said. “And I did.”
Despite the loss, it was a good game for the 36-year-old Uruk-hai center fielder. He had 1 hit, scored 1 run and had 3 runs batted in.
The Hops manager said, “You could see he was aggressive up there. The worst thing we did was throw him a strike. It probably would have been better if we threw the ball outside of the strike zone every time he came to the plate because he seemed like he was in a hurry to get it over with.”
Lifetime *Samarkand is hitting .353 and has totaled 300 home runs.
