Tolkien Baseball fans were certainly not disappointed with this Shire Conference Fellowship Series.
The two teams were evenly matched and the series went to the final game, with the Bywater Bounders prevailing over the Bree Cheese to advance to the Two Towers Series.
Bywater won the final game by a score of 18-5 at The Water Park and that sealed the series 4-3.
“Things were tense in our clubhouse and dugout before and during this game, but we can let loose a bit now — the hard work is over, for now,” said center fielder Isseen Elrithranduil, who earned MVP honors.
For the series, Elrithranduil hit .333 with a .357 on-base percentage. He had 3 home runs, 8 RBI and scored 6 runs.
The Bywater Bounders will play against the Lake Town Archers in the next round. Lake Town won their series against the Mirkwood Sylvan 4 games to 1. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes.
