Devils Heading to Two Towers Series

Saturday, October 15th, 2039
The Fellowship Series didn’t live up to the billing from those who thought it would be an all-out battle to the last game.

But the Dunharrow Devils are no doubt pleased by the results, as they have knocked out the Weathertop Witch Kings 4-1 to advance to the Two Towers Series.

“It doesn’t matter how you win it, as long as you win it and get yourself moving forward,” said Devils first baseman Asphodel Brockhouse. “I know a lot of people thought this was going to be a really tight series the whole way through, but we’re glad it didn’t go right down to the wire.”

Dunharrow won the final game by a score of 3-2 at Dunharrow Field.

Brockhouse was named series MVP after hitting .348 with a .348 on-base percentage. He also had 2 home runs, drove in 6 RBI and scored 3 runs.

The Dunharrow Devils don’t know who they will face in the next round. They will play the winner of the Dagorlad Disaster – Misty Mountain Hops series. Dagorlad leads the series 3 games to 1. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes.

Devils Hammered by Gilmathien, Drop Game 4 to Witch Kings

On the verge of being swept and facing a red-hot Dunharrow Devils team, the Weathertop Witch Kings had a tough assignment. Vordor Gilmathien delivered.

The Witch Kings left fielder was unstoppable for the visitors, as he went 2 for 3 with a home run and 2 walks, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once in guiding his club to its first victory of the series, 6-4. Gilmathien, 30, was named player of the game for his efforts. The win means Weathertop now trails 3-1 in the best-of-7 series.

Marin Goldtearer helped his team jump on top from the get-go. His first time up in the top of the first, he cranked a 2-run double to give Weathertop a 2-0 lead.

“We lost,” Dunharrow manager Tika Dap said later. “We’ll deal with it. The series isn’t over.”

Game 5 is set to be played tomorrow at Dunharrow Field. Slated to start are Sorria Elrolinde Jr. for Weathertop and Lantai Lómebrildur for Dunharrow.

Thrice as Nice: Dunharrow Seizes 3-0 Advantage With Late Win

The Dunharrow Devils moved to within one game of the Two Towers Series today, downing the Weathertop Witch Kings 2-1 in a low-scoring, extra-inning affair at Dunharrow Field. Leading the way for the Devils was right-hander Todo Gilmore, who was named player of the game after he threw 6 innings of 4-hit ball. The win gives the Devils a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-7 Fellowship Series.

Late-game drama came in the bottom of the 12th inning. With one out and runners on 1st and 2nd, the batter, Betsy Elril-Gambor, hit a single. It helped Dunharrow seize the win.

“We did just enough to win,” Elril-Gambor said.

Game 4 is scheduled for tomorrow at Dunharrow Field. The scheduled starters for the game are Abguk Throatshaker for Weathertop and Eva Chiselarm for Dunharrow.
