Disaster End Derrokicker’s Streak

Friday, June 4th, 2038
It was a doubly miserable day today for Luumsh Derrokicker of the Lake Town Archers, as he saw his 26-game hitting streak end and his team lose 3-0 to the Dagorlad Disaster at Dagorlad Memorial Stadium. The 25-year-old right fielder was held hitless in 4 at-bats by the Disaster.

“Anyone on a 26-game hitting streak is going to be a tough out,” Dagorlad manager Gameodriel Eoweriand said later. “But we had a plan and we were careful about it, and got it done.”

Batting .321 to date, Derrokicker has 6 home runs and 26 RBIs.

Thursday, June 3rd, 2038
With 1 hit at Lake Town Park today, Luumsh Derrokicker added another game to his hitting streak — the Lake Town right fielder has now hit safely for 25 games in a row. But the hitting feat wasn’t enough for the Archers today, as they fell, 4-3, to the Bywater Bounders.

“Frankly, I don’t care about hits,” Bywater manager Girith of Rhun said later. “I’ll let him get 4 hits in 4 at-bats if it means we get a win.”
Luumsh Derrokicker singled in the 1st, grounded out in the 3rd, flied out in the 6th and flied out in the 8th.

Thus far this season in 51 games Derrokicker is batting .327 with 6 home runs, 26 RBIs and 33 runs scored. He has 69 hits in 211 at-bats.

League KO’s Bounders-Archers Players with 4-Game Suspensions

Thursday, June 3rd, 2038
Baseball confrontations occasionally get intense and sometimes that tension becomes too much and boils over into more than just words. This time it happened to Bywater’s Gail Bilas and Lake Town’s Aldo Even. The two were the main participants in a fight that cleared the benches. Today both were suspended by the league for 4 games for their aggressive actions.

“I hope things settle down now,” the manager of the Archers said later. “There’s no reason for us to be locked in a cycle of revenge. We all need to focus on baseball instead.”

Thus far this season in 22 games Bilas is batting .263 with no home runs, 8 RBIs and 8 runs scored. He has 21 hits in 80 at-bats.

Even has compiled an ERA of 1.80 so far this season, winning 1 games with no losses and no saves. In 15 relief appearances he has hurled 20 innings, yielded 15 hits and struck out 19. Opposing hitters have batted .217 against Even.

On his milestone day *Silverwolf had 3 hits in 4 at-bats with 2 runs batted in and 2 runs scored.

Tongue-in-cheek he told the press, “Don’t tell me when I get close to the next milestone. Just tell me after I reach it. It will be easier to hit that way.”

In his career *Silverwolf is hitting .321 with 1355 hits, 300 home runs, 912 runs scored and 771 RBIs.

Those around Tolkien Baseball may see the Lake Town Archers as underdogs to win the Return of the King Series, but the team itself doesn’t see it that way.

“We’re just as good as anyone in the league, whether or not we won the Shire Conference Hobbit Division,” said starting pitcher Garon Paddywhack. “We know what we’re capable of.”

For his part, team manager Borigal Bridger deflected comments about whether or not he considers his team underdogs in the upcoming playoffs.

“One way or another, you’ve got to go play the games,” he said.
