Crimson to Risk Win Streak Today
Nine to Meet Strong Brown Team in Tilt at Providence
Roaring along in high gear, and with a five game winning streak to show for it. Coach Stahl's nine young men move into Providence today to match base hits with a Brown team in the second and last inter-collegiate game of the summer season.
After a steady and very digestible diet of service teams, the Crimson will meet the Brunonians for the second time. The first meeting, back in the end of July resulted in a 1-0 Bruin victory, with the pitchers' duel decided by an unearned run.
Berg to Start
Coach Stahl will depend on Warren "Moe" Berg, the owner of a four game winning streak, for the Crimson hurling chores. Brown is expected to counter with their ace moundsman, work-horse Earl Nichols, who engineered last month's whitewashing of the Crim-
son with an assortment of fast balls, curves, and slow sinkers.
The weak-hitting Bruin aggregation has averaged only five or six hits per game and has been further hurt by the loss of Jay Fielder, the oversized catcher whose big bat carried the brunt of the Brown attack for the first half of the season. But on the defensive side it is a team to be reckoned with. The infield is air-tight, and the veteran Nichols has a managed to service weak batting support to win many one-run games. In his last start, he limited Yale to a single marker while his team-mates garnered two to win.
After early season ups and downs, the Crimson has developed an attack to match Berg's consistently fine and sometimes spectacular work on the mound. Provided that the poor batting background at Brown's Aldrich Field doesn't throw their timing off, the Harvard line-up should keep hurler Nichols and the Bruin outfielders hustling this afternoon
