Ragnar *Stonecutter III of the Raiders won the battle against Dagorlad pitching, but lost the war. He hit three out of the park at Dagorlad Memorial Stadium, got his name in the league record book, but Isengard came up short in the win column, losing to the Disaster 8-5. The Isengard shortstop was red-hot, the ball just exploded off his bat all day long.
“I don’t try to hit homers,” he said. “I try to go out there and have good at-bats. If I put a good swing on the ball, then it is going to go out of the park. I didn’t try to hit the first one or the second one or the third one. I just try to have good at-bats.”
For the game he went 3 for 5 with 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored.
Where does he rank this day in his career? “It’s up there,” *Stonecutter III said. “I’ll put it up there in the upper echelon, despite the loss.”
Ragnar *Stonecutter III hit a solo-shot off Snibb *Ninwocket in the 1st, flied out in the 2nd, hit a solo-shot off Pansy Hedgeworth in the 5th, hit a solo-shot off Muumak Sundragger in the 7th and grounded out in the 9th.
This year *Stonecutter III is batting .306 with 22 home runs.
