Hobbit Series Goes the Distance, Minas Ithil Prevails

Saturday, October 6th, 2035
When the entire season comes down to one game, Hae Tinąlindė said you find out what a team is really about.

As it turns out, the Minas Ithil Wyrms are made of fight and tenacity, as the team got by the Bywater Bounders 2-1 tonight at Silmarillion Cellular Field in order to win the Hobbit Series and book a place in the next round.

With 2 down in the bottom of the 9th and the score tied 1-1, Bafur Rocktearer took a 2-strike pitch from Bywater closer, Nolok Fingertorturer, and drove it deep up the gap in left center for a double. Mugnar Bronzevisor wasted no time, stroking the first pitch he saw to left field for a walk-off, game-winning RBI double.

“It wasn’t hard to get excited for this game,” said Tinąlindė, whose strong offensive output earned him MVP honors. “Our guys answered the call and proved a lot about what our team is all about.”

Tinąlindė hit 1.000 with a 1.000 on-base percentage. He had 2 home runs, drove in 4 RBI and scored 3 runs.

The Minas Ithil Wyrms will play against the Bree Cheese in the next round. Bree had a bye in the Hobbit Series. The Fellowship Series schedule will be announced after the Hobbit Series finishes.
