The 20-game hitting streak is over.
Old Forest Merry Fellows right fielder Alrond *Hubbard, Jr. failed to get a hit today against the Lothlorien Lumberjacks and had his consecutive-game hitting streak broken. The 18-year-old went 0-for-3 in his club’s 6-4 victory over the Lumberjacks at Shire Greens Stadium.
“I think I only made it to 20 games because I got lucky once or twice,” he said. “So I guess I can’t complain too much that I got unlucky and broke the streak.”
*Hubbard, Jr. is presently hitting at a .382 pace with 28 home runs and 71 RBIs. He has played in 111 games and scored 105 times.
