The Dagorlad Disaster center fielder blistered the Ravenhill Darkwings for 3 hits, batted in 3 runs and scored 4 times.

“It ain’t like we weren’t trying,” Ravenhill manager Moggek Ghoulslobberer said. “He was hot and really torched my boys today.”

Taleisin Arwaun grounded out in the 2nd, hit a solo-shot off Mumli Oakenarmour in the 4th, walked in the 6th, hit a solo-shot off Guido Longstrider in the 8th and hit a solo-shot off Moktar Cusick in the 9th.
