Yes, It’s a No-No by Pennypacker

Thursday, August 9th, 2040
Lothlorien Lumberjacks starter Ganymede Pennypacker was unhittable today at Gap of Rohan Park at Caradhras.

Pennypacker beat the Misty Mountain Hops 7-0, breezing through the Hops lineup en route to a no-hitter.

“I thought Ganymede started off a little slow and was struggling with his command at first,” Lumberjacks manager Bart Hawks said later. “He lucked his way through the early innings, and they helped him out by not being patient. Eventually, it all came together for him, and from there on the Hops never had a chance. He dominated them.”

Pennypacker struck out 5 batters and issued 3 walks in the performance.

For the season Pennypacker has compiled a 7-4 record with a 4.50 ERA.
