The 25-game hitting streak of Mirkwood Sylvan catcher DeForest *Hamrh came to an end today at Old League Park. The Carrock Bears held him hitless in 3 at-bats and also sent the Sylvan down to defeat, 2-1.
Later, *Hamrh acknowledged to BNN reporters that the hit streak meant something to him.
“It was special,” he said, “but I think other people make a bigger deal out of it than I do, or the players do. It was what we’re all supposed to do; go out and hit the ball and try to score runs. It was a cool deal, but it’s over now. Let’s try to start a new one.”
For the year *Hamrh is batting .384 with 22 home runs, 63 RBIs and 69 runs scored.
