The old superstition that “bad news comes in threes” certainly came true for the Misty Mountain Hops today.
Bree center fielder Suuggek Ettincrawler tripled up on the home runs to propel the Cheese to the 9-4 win at Gap of Rohan Park at Caradhras.
“We had our chances to win the game, but we just didn’t come through,” Misty Mountain manager John Bermejo said. “Ettincrawler hit the heck out of the ball.”
In addition to the homers, Ettincrawler collected 3 hits in 3 at-bats, 3 RBIs and scored 4 runs.
“Easy swings get you home runs,” he said after the game. “I kept telling myself not to press. They have to be nice and easy swings.”
Suuggek Ettincrawler hit a solo-shot off Dudo Brownlock in the 1st, hit a solo-shot off Dudo Brownlock in the 3rd, hit a solo-shot off Dudo Brownlock in the 5th, walked in the 7th and walked in the 8th.
This year Ettincrawler is batting .270 with 39 home runs.
