The first contest was featured by the
hitting of Smith, the medic pitcher,
who garnered one homer and two sin-
gles itt-three trills t the' plate. The.
second innig sas seven nestcross
the platter for the medics, while three
more tallied in the fourth. The laws
threatened in both the third and fourth
innings, scoring twice in each, but at
no time did they appear dangerous.
