Tigers got gift runs to earn split Lakers showed their hospitality By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Cigars weren't the only thing being given at Henderson Stadium Sunday afternoon. It was Father's Day and all again it was right-hander Mic- key Hall who held them in check.

Once they got inside, they saw generosity of a different variety. The Lakers were guil- ty of giving away a few runs Sunday and as a result, split the two games with the Tigers. In the first game, the visitors came up with four unearned runs as they edged the Lakers 5-3. In the nightcap, Lakers emerged with the spoils 4-2. Again, the two Edmonton runs were unearned. However, conditions were not of the best kind and manager Ron Taylor vias far from upset at the conclusion of the two games. Lakers, in running their sea- son mark to 7-3, lost their sec- ond straight game to the Ti- gers in the opener and once self on the other end of the win- loss column.

The game was shortened to seven innings and the Lakers simply ran out of time. Tigers scored three times in the third inning on a triple by Dave Sowinski and a home run by Jessie Chavez. Two Laker errors contributed to the Ti- gers' success in the third and again in the sixth when they scored their deciding two runs. Lakers' runs came in the first, fifth and sixth. Hall faced a minor rally in the bottom of the seventh when with one- away Taylor and Howie Heggedal sin- gled. Hall got Wayne Commo- dore to strike out and then watched Chavez rob Rob Roy of an extra-base hit with a brilliant catch in right-centre with Taylor and Heggedal on the move. Chavez added a single to his home run while Greg War- zecki chipped in with a double and a home run. Heggedal rapped out three singles for the Lakers while Roy added a pair. In the nightcap, Paul Sullivan scattered nine singles to pick up his third win of the year. He has not lost a game. to Taylor, wouldn't help the strong right-hander who seems to thrive on work. The fact he managed only two strikeouts, shows he wasn't at his best. Lakers got to Ernie Hee for all four of their runs in the first two innings.
