UNIVERSITY NINE FACES WESLEYAN
Travis, Invaders' Leading Pitcher, on Mound--Visitors' Weakness Is Chiefly in Field
The Harvard baseball team enters its twelfth game of the season this afternoon when it meets Wesleyan in a contest scheduled for 4 o'clock. The visitors from Connecticut are not expected to offer much opposition to the Crimson nine, for they have met with rough treatment at the hands of three of the teams they have encountered this spring. The only victory on the Middeltown nine's list thus far is a 2 to 1 ten-inning decision over Lowell Textile. The three teams which have taken Wesleyan's measure and the margin of their victories are Columbia, 5 to 2, Colby, 4 to 2, and Mass. Aggies, 6 to 2.
Barbee, who shut out Amherst last Saturday will hurl again today, to give the first string Crimson twirler another workout before the Brown game next Saturday. Wesleyan will start its first string pitcher. Travis, on the mound this afternoon.
The chief weakness of the Connecticut nine lies in its work in the field. Ten errors have been counted against the Wesleyan players in the last two games. If the players can overcome this tendency they can be expected to put up a much stronger front.
