The Misty Mountain Hops bandwagon is filling up fast, as the team has moved one step closer to winning a Return of the King Series championship.
Misty Mountain downed the Lothlorien Lumberjacks 4-2 tonight at Celebrant Field, to take the Fellowship Series 4-1.
“It seems much more real now and we’re really starting to realize we’ve got a great shot at this thing,” said Cuugush McKeown, who was named series MVP. “When we play our best we’re as good as anybody in the Tolkien Baseball.”
For the series, McKeown had 6 hits for .333, with a .368 on-base percentage. He had 3 home runs, 6 RBI and scored 4 runs.
The Misty Mountain Hops don’t know who they will face in the next round. They will play the winner of the Isengard Raiders – Dagorlad Disaster series. Isengard leads the series 3 games to 1. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes.
