Of the ball game at Tampa yester day the Tampa Tribune says; Too much Hernandez I He was master of ceremonies at all stages of yesterday's game with Lakeland and the Smokers took the long end ot a 3 to 2 score. Not only did he pitch masterly ball but he won his own game with the bludgeon. He was touched for a to tal of seven blngles but they were well scattered and he was especially stingy when Lakeland runners were on the paths.. . Pinch hitters and every other form ot eleventh-hour victories known to shrewd management were used in an effort to stem the tide, but to no avail. Hernandez was going at top speed and all the emergency , men could do was go back to the bench and pinch themselves , because they failed to deliver the punch that would have won the game. The Smokers were the first to score, though the Highlanders placed them selves In a favorable position in tne opening stanza. Wicker, first man to face the "Silent Marvel." singled ana Ftole second. Ery followed with a single and Wicker pulled up at third. Caraway hit one toward Hernandez and Wicker went out at the plate. Erv ain to third. 1 Pire poked one at Brown and Ery was out at the plate. Rlra laid one down in front of the nlate and Farrior threw to first but Jackson was playing In close and he shot the ball back to Farrior, who tawed Carraway at the .plate, retiring the Highlanders. -- The 8mokers scored nrst in tne third. Leon was safe when Turner booted his grovmAer. Villarln laid down a bunt that he beat out ana both runners were advanced on Jack son's sacrifice. Leon was waiting on third for the blow that would sena Mm .rross-the plate,, but. the w was not needed. One ot Hall's tlaots dncked down and caught the plate squarely In the face, bounding bacK toward tho grandstand and Leon trot tArf home, while-Villarln raced to third. "Son" Brown caught a Pignal from the bench for a squeeze and he delivered, laying a pretty bunt down toward third and Villarln was spiking the pan before the ball was flelded Lakeland came right back in the fourth and tied the score. Pierre and Rlva singled to start the frame. Both advanced a base when Hernandez ex ecuted a wild pitch and Mehat? hit a hot single through third, scoring Pierre. The Highlanders truvi the hit and run game, but Cohen failed to connect with the apple and a race started between Rlva and the ball He dashed for the plate. Farrior dropped Alvarez' throw and the run ner scored, tielng the count. Hall and Hernandez settled down and for a time It looked as It another extra inning engagement might re suit. But it was not tor long,,, Al varez was safe on Turner's error. He took a safe lead and started down when he thought Hall was In the act ot throwing to the batter. Hall was not In the box and he turned and threw to first. Alvarez was In bad but he got out of the hole by dash in to second ahead ot the ball.' Her nandez disliked to pitch so long with the tied and he drove a screaming double to left center, scoring Alvarez and tucking the game away snugly in the win column.
