Players don’t hit three home runs in a game very often and when they do, it is something to celebrate. After today, Vabis Githrarith can celebrate.
The Dol Guldur Dragons left fielder powered three into the stands at Orthanc Stadium today against the Isengard Raiders.
“It’s rare that you actually try to hit a home run,” Githrarith told reporters after the game. “Most of the time you fail, if you really try to hit one. But today, I was really trying on that last one.”
In all, he was 3-for-4 as the Dragons toppled Isengard by a score of 10-3, knocking in 5 runs and scoring 3 times.
“He is blessed with a natural home run swing,” Dol Guldur manager Lura Galindil said. “He gets the ball up in the air.”
Vabis Githrarith struck out in the 1st, hit a solo-shot off Meriadoc Fieldtender in the 4th, hit a two-run home run off Meriadoc Fieldtender in the 6th, hit a solo-shot off Lyraesel Eliondel in the 8th and hit a sac fly in the 9th.
This year Githrarith has collected a .253 batting average to date with 56 hits in 221 at-bats, 40 RBIs, 13 home runs and scored 34 times. He has played in 65 games.
