Well, boys, that certainly was some came, full of pep, and excitement. If they play many more games like yes terdays I am afraid that some oi those fans with a weak heart will fade away in the excitement. Young was on the mound for the Caps and pitched a beautiful game but big boy Ery, who was opposing him also was ig superb form allow ing but two hits in eight Innings, not one of the Caps reaching second until in the eighth. The game was a pitcn ers' battle throughout, both setting the batters down In short order, keep- ng the fans In suspense during six fast innings. , Talk about excitement! Why, I saw one fan holding on to his seat and saueezlne it so hard that you could see turpentine dripping out of a forty-year-old board, while another one was wiping the dew drops oft his neighbor's face thinking it was his own. Neither side threatened to Bcore un til the last half of the sixtn wnen. after two men were down, Wicker hit for a clean triple which set the fans a-howling. Glunt prevented any scoring by go ing after Wicker's hit to left and get ting under the ball after a good sprint, colliding with Hunter nut holding on to the ball. In the seventh inning the; High landers broke the Ice scoring two runs by some timely hitting and some perfect bunting. St. Charles first up singled to right, starting the ball a rolltne. Ery sent him flown to sec ond wit, a perfect bunt, Ery going out at first. Campbell singled to right, taking second on throw in to tnira, at. Charles landing at third and Turner then laid down a bunt toward third, St. Charles beating the throw to the Dlate. Cohen followed up tho good work bv bunting in the same direc- tion and in an attempt to field the ball quickly Young pushed aside Campbell, scoring, which ended tne scoring for Lakeland. Meharg filed to center and mills out at first. This seemed to be sufficient to win the game but when those Caps came to bat in he last Inning they almost Beared us stiff for Ery who had been going like a house on fire seemed to let down a notcn ana ior a wnne u looked as though those Caps would tie the score If not better. Stephens hit the ball on the nose for a triple and Jones rouowea win a double, scoring Sephens. Hunter was an easy out. St. Charles to Me harg and Jones trying to score was caught at the plate dv a gooa mar gin. . .- ' This relieved the strain somewhat but Ball caused the fans to breathe hard by pounding out a single but was pver-anxious to get around the. bases and was headed off at second on an attempted steal, ending a beautiful game. ' Those Highlanders certainly de serve good support by the fans for, during the entire series with . the Caps they have put up a great game, fighting to the last man in true "do or die" fashion. They will travel to Bradentovm to- Monday. fWoll, good luck to you, boys. f First Inning , F Orlando Glunt out, Cohen to Mo harg Stevens struck out; Jones sin gled over third, out stealing, Camp ebll to Cohen. 1 hit; no runs.
