Weathertop Loses Dorsey Whist

Wednesday, August 15th, 2040
After the end of today’s game between Weathertop and Erebor, Dorsey Whist skipped the clubhouse and headed straight for the doctor’s office. After he was removed from the game as a precaution after running the bases, the Witch Kings had their worst fears confirmed when it turned out to be more serious. The right fielder will miss at least 5-6 weeks with a strained posterior cruciate ligament.

This season Whist has hit at a .253 clip and produced 59 RBI, 26 home runs and 62 runs.

Eäril-Gambor is hitting .285 this year with 7 home runs and 15 RBIs. He also has an OBP of .337, 10 walks and scored 22 times.

Devils Heading to Two Towers Series

Saturday, October 15th, 2039
The Fellowship Series didn’t live up to the billing from those who thought it would be an all-out battle to the last game.

But the Dunharrow Devils are no doubt pleased by the results, as they have knocked out the Weathertop Witch Kings 4-1 to advance to the Two Towers Series.

“It doesn’t matter how you win it, as long as you win it and get yourself moving forward,” said Devils first baseman Asphodel Brockhouse. “I know a lot of people thought this was going to be a really tight series the whole way through, but we’re glad it didn’t go right down to the wire.”

Dunharrow won the final game by a score of 3-2 at Dunharrow Field.

Brockhouse was named series MVP after hitting .348 with a .348 on-base percentage. He also had 2 home runs, drove in 6 RBI and scored 3 runs.

The Dunharrow Devils don’t know who they will face in the next round. They will play the winner of the Dagorlad Disaster – Misty Mountain Hops series. Dagorlad leads the series 3 games to 1. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes.

Gilmathien, 30, was named player of the game for his efforts. The win means Weathertop now trails 3-1 in the best-of-7 series.
