His critics are starting to suggest that Weathertop’s Arilas Eäril-Gambor doesn’t have much left, but the 35-year-old Eäril-Gambor prefers not to think that way. He cooked up a remarkable week in the last seven days, topping it off with the Player of the Week Award in the Mordor Conference.

The veteran center fielder for the Witch Kings rolled to a .520 average (13-for-25) with 1 home run and 3 RBIs.

The Weathertop center fielder hit for the cycle with a 5-for-6 day and collected 3 runs batted in and scored 2 runs — but to no avail — his team lost the game anyway.

Arilas Eäril-Gambor grounded out in the 1st, tripled in the 3rd, hit a two-run home run off Dudo Brownlock in the 6th, hit an RBI double in the 7th, singled in the 9th, walked in the 11th and singled in the 13th.
