Of the many memorable accomplishments in the career of Bree Cheese pitcher Meriamli Rockcrusher, none will likely compare to the outing he had against Minas Tirith today at Bree-Land Ballpark. Rockcrusher was perfect, retiring every batter he faced to give his team the 5-0 victory over the Titans.
“That shows you the kind of competitor he is,” Bree manager Lura Elvilmaldor said. “I thought he dominated the whole game. He hit his spots well and was really focused out there.”
He finished the game with 12 strikeouts, walked no one, gave up no hits and his teammates made no errors. He retired all 27 batters he faced.
“I had command of my pitches from the get-go,” said Rockcrusher. “Usually it takes a few innings for me to get loose and get my mechanics right. It happened quicker today. I was comfortable from the first pitch. As the innings went on, it got easier. I was really smooth, fluid and relaxed. And the team definitely had my back.”
So far this year Rockcrusher has made 9 starts, tossed 69.1 innings, struck out 72 batters and walked 10. His record is 4-4 with a 2.86 ERA and he has limited opposing teams to a .208 batting average.
