The Bywater Bounders are heading to the Return of the King Series, having narrowly defeated the Lake Town Archers.
Bywater edged Lake Town in the series 4-3, with a win at The Water Park in the clinching game by a 6-5 margin.
Ferdinand *Puttifoot turned in a strong offensive performance for the Bounders and got series MVP for his efforts.
“I’ll never turn down another trophy for my mantle, another accomplishment to remember once my career is over,” he said. “What I would really remember, though, is a Return of the King Series win.”
It remains to be seen how the playoffs will conclude, but if *Puttifoot continues to swing a hot bat, his team will no doubt have a chance.
For the series, he hit .480 with a .533 on-base percentage. He had 4 home runs, 7 RBI and scored 7 runs.
The Bywater Bounders will play against the Isengard Raiders in the next round. Isengard won their series against the Ravenhill Darkwings 4 games to 1. The Return of the King Series schedule will be announced after the Two Towers Series finishes.
