Seconds Break Even With St. John's
The second baseball team played the St. John's School nine to a 9 to 9 tie yesterday afternoon on Soldiers Field. The game was very loosely played on both sides, the seconds making four errors, and their opponents five. Neither pitcher was able to last out the whole contest. Burns replacing Anastas in the sixth for the Crimson, and O'Neill and later Baker replacing Sullivan for St. John's. The seconds showed a superior brand of baseball, but the visitors bunched six hits in one inning, scoring a total of five runs.
The seconds scored one run in the second, and momentarily took the lead in the fourth, but the fifth brought St. John's five runs, and the Crimson trailed for the rest of the contest until the last of the ninth, when they tied the score as the result of a double by Kers. The game was called at this point on account of darkness.
