Harvard 8; Brown 3.

The Harvard nine played the same hard, steady game at Providence on Saturday which has characterized its work for the past two weeks. Brown was confident of winning and a large crowd filled the grand stand. The enthusiasm of the spectators was great when Brown succeeded in scoring in the first half of the first inning, but it was short lived. Harvard came to the bat and scored two runs on a base on balls and three clean singles, thus taking the lead which was held throughout the game.

In the third inning Sexton strained his arm and went to centre field; Woodcock took his place in the box and Thurston relieved Tenney behind the bat. In the fourth Upton and Dean each got a single and Hovey lined the ball over the back fence but was given only two bases in accordance with the ground rules. Bates who was on third scored on the hit. In the fifth Brown made three of her seven hits and scored for the last time until the ninth. In the seventh Harvard batted Woodcock for five runs, making three doubles, a singie and a home run. The features of the game were the long hits of Dean and Hovey. Bates and Woodcock both pitched steadily and at times did brilliant work. Harvard's two errors were both made by Dickinson in the first inning and one of them was very excusable. The umpiring was good and the hard, clean hitting made the game interesting. Harvard outplayed Brown at every point except being the bat; Upton was very wild in his throwing to bases.
