Postseason Bid Ends for Carrock

Monday, September 24th, 2035
It’s a close-but-no-cigar type of season for the Carrock Bears. The club today was officially eliminated from playoff contention.

In their 32 seasons in Tolkien Baseball, the Bears have still yet to qualify for the playoffs.

It’s a No-No for Underhill

Tuesday, September 18th, 2035
The Carrock Bears relied on no-hit stuff from starter Till Underhill to defeat the Rivendell Royals 3-0 at Old League Park today.

“It’s quite a thrill,” Underhill told the media afterward. “This is a top-notch league. A no-hitter against any team in the league is something special. I can’t believe I did it.”

To get his name logged in the Shire Conference records, he stopped Rivendell cold and hitless, surrendering 2 walks and fanning 11 of the 29 batters he faced.

Carrock manager Longo Banks was in a jovial mode after the game, kidding with reporters that Underhill “made managing easy today.”

“I didn’t have hardly any decisions to make like I usually do,” he said. “I didn’t even have to come up with a pinch hitter.”

This year Underhill has posted a record of 11 wins and 9 losses with a 4.00 ERA. He has appeared in 27 games and struck out 138 in 148.2 innings.

Toothbelly Wins SC Player of the Week

Monday, September 17th, 2035
At the age of 27, Gromghash Toothbelly might have some potential he hasn’t realized yet — if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The Carrock shortstop put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .448 batting average. For his efforts Toothbelly collected the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.

He racked up 13 hits in 29 at-bats, 2 home runs and 14 RBIs last week in 7 games.

This year Toothbelly is batting .259 with 17 home runs and 60 RBIs. In 148 games he has scored 85 times.

This season *UrukBane has compiled a 13-6 mark with a 1.37 ERA.

Season-Ending Injury for Kognar Moonkiller

Saturday, July 21st, 2035
The Carrock Bears were dealt a severe blow when Kognar Moonkiller was hurt running the bases recently in a game against the Bree Cheese. After the game, the team trainer reported Moonkiller might have to spend a lengthy time on the disabled list. Today doctors confirmed it, ruling the 23-year-old center fielder out for the rest of the season with a torn posterior cruciate ligament. They indicated it would take Moonkiller at least 10 months to heal.

On the year Moonkiller has hit .274 with 18 home runs, 51 RBIs and scored 41 runs.
