In a hot and burning sun under a cloudless blue sky, a doughty Kirkland House baseball team felt the well sharpened Bulldog teeth of the champion Yale College batsmen, as they went down to inglorious defeat before the clever pitching of the Jonathan Edwards team by a score of 11-0 yesterday afternoon on Soldiers Field.
Horton, on the mound for the Blue, hurled a game so light that as well as allowing only four weak scattered hits in nine innings of close ball, he fanned 15 men, giving only one walk, Christopher and Staples, on the mound for the Crimson coheres, hurled the fourth game in which their team has engaged this week, both turning in creditable jobs, in spite of tired arms. Between them they gave two passes, 11 hits, and struck out 12.
The Deacons' greatest weakness lay in their surprisingly poor fielding, turning in almost twice as many errors as the Eli men and more than has been their practice during this spring.
