Base Ball.

Harvard 8; Newtons 2.

Harvard won from the Newtons on Holmes Field yesterday afternoon by a score of 8 to 2. Wiggin pitched and was very effective, holding the Newtons down to two singles and striking out fourteen men. In the third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth innings the Newtons were unable to get beyond first base, and only three of their men reached third during the entire game. The two runs were scored in the fifth inning when Hubbard, through an error by Soule, reached first, stole second, went to third on a passed ball and came home immediately afterward on a wild pitch. Slade was given his base on balls, also stole second, and made the second and last run for the Newtons on another passed ball. In the rest of the innings the men went out in one, two, three order. Mason threw very prettily to second but was careless at times in stopping the ball.

Harvard for four innings was very weak at the bat. In the fourth she scored one run on a base on balls, a stolen base and an excusable error by left field. In the fifth an error, two steals and four singles netted three runs, none of them being earned. An equally good batting streak was found in the seventh, during which four hits, one of them a three-bagger, three steals, an error and a sacrifice again increased Harvard's lead, this time by four runs, one being earned.

The make-up of the nine was considerably changed as Hallowell and Hovey's positions were filled by Paine and Soule. The latter made a couple of errors one of which was responsible for on of Newton's runs.
