The Hops stopped Gandeaden Elreodriel’s 21-game hitting streak today at Celebrant Field, but they couldn’t stop the Lothlorien Lumberjacks, falling by the score of 4-0.
Elreodriel didn’t get a hit for the first time in weeks, finishing 0-for-4.
“It’s just as well,” Lumberjacks manager Bart Hawks said. “We couldn’t spend the whole season going out of our way not to jinx him.”
Elreodriel is hitting .293 this season with 1 home run, 4 RBIs and 15 runs scored. He has 29 hits in 99 at-bats.
