The fielding of both teams was watched in the extreme. Cassatt after making five errors was relegated to the players bench, and Whiting took his place, filling the position very creditably.
The sophomores had the game well in hand at the end of their half of the sixth inning, the score standing 10 to 3 in their favor. Dreyfus then stepped to the bat, was given his base on balls, stole second and third, and came home by a pretty three-bagger by Gillmore. Rogers had in the meantime made a hit, stolen second, and this same hit by Gillmore brought him home. An error by Lowell gave Cassatt his base enabling Gillmore to score. Then after a steal Cassatt added another run by Frothingham's fumble, and the freshmen had raised their score four points.
Ninety-four failed to do anything in the next three innings at the bat. In the field they had even worse luck. Three successive base hits in the eighth by Wadsworth, Gilmore and Whiting brought in two earned runs. Walker was then given his base on balls. An error by Gray gave Phelan a chance to reach first, while Walker went to second, sending in Whiting and tying the score. Walker and Phelan then succeeded in reaching home, aided by steals and errors.
The features of the game were a pretty double play by Lowell and Quigley, a running overhead catch by Phelan and Gillmore's three-baser.
