Hot tempers flared and a few punches were thrown at the Old Forest and Mirkwood game yesterday and ended up with two players ejected. Giden Eladriewen of the Merry Fellows and Galailbo Earbelly of the Sylvan have now been reprimanded and issued 3-game suspensions by the league commissioner for their parts in the fracas.
Eladriewen is hitting .236 so far this season with 76 RBIs and 72 runs scored. He has 119 hits including 34 home runs, 42 walks and .308 OBP.
Earbelly has taken the mound for 32 relief appearances this season, nailing down no saves while notching a 2-0 record with a 1.98 ERA. The Mirkwood reliever has limited opposing batters to a .193 batting average.
