PRINCETON, N. J., June 13, 1900. -- Princeton won the second baseball game this afternoon on University field, by the score of 9 to 2.
The game was played under nearly perfect weather conditions before an enthusiastic crowd of about six thousand persons. Princeton won by heavy batting in the first four innings, when all their runs were scored. Harvard had nearly as many hits, but most of them came with one or two men out. The fielding was rather erratic on both sides. Kernan was substituted for Stillman in the fourth inning and did excellent work, allowing but two hits, and no runs during the remainder of the game. Reid strained his leg in the first inning, but played nearly all of the game, being finally replaced by Milne.
In the first inning, Kendall was hit by a pitched ball, and advanced to second by Loughlin's sacrifice. Reid then hit safely, Kendall taking third, but the side was retired without a run by a close double play by the Princeton infield. Steinwender was also hit by a pitched ball, but was forced at second on Coolidge's good stop of Kafer's grounder. Meier then made a three-base hit over Loughlin's head, scoring Kafer, and scored himself on Hillebrand's single. Hillebrand was forced at second by Burke, who came home on Pearson's liner through Kendall. Chapman then went out at first, closing the inning.
Harvard went out in succession in the second inning. For Princeton, Hutchinson bunted safely, and stole second, taking third on Watkin's sacrifice and scoring on Steinwender's grounder. Steinwender took second on a passed ball, and scored on Kafer's single. Kafer made the third out, attempting to steal second. In the third inning Coolidge hit a liner between right and centre for three bases and scored on Fincke's long fly. For Princeton, Hillebrand singled and Burke made a double. Pearson hit safely and Hillebrand scored, but Burke was caught at the plate. Chapman hit to Coolidge, who caught Pearson between second and third, and Hutchinson went out on a grounder. Princeton scored her last runs in the fourth, when Steinwender and Watkins were hit by Stillman, and Meier cleared the bases by a home run far over Devens' head, after a sacrifice by Kafer.
Harvard scored again in the seventh, Fincke going to second on Meier's bad throw, and scoring on Clark's single. This ended the scoring.
