HEAVY batting and excellent fielding marked the playing of both nines. Nunn captured a very difficult fly and made some excellent stops. Fessenden caught a hot liner in left field. In the third inning Holden struck out; Wright hit for a base, and gained his second through the inequality of the ground where the ball struck; Howe followed with a three-base hit, the ball reaching the fence behind centre field; Nunn flied to pitcher; Sawyer made a base hit, bringing in Howe; Thayer followed with a safe hit, but Tyng closed the inning by striking out. Harvard 2, Manchester o, and thus the score remained until the seventh inning, when Kelley led off with a two base hit; O'Rourke followed him with an equally good hit; Leary struck to Nunn, who tried to cut O'Rourke off at third, but failed; Leary then stole his second; Dailey hit to Thayer, who fielded O'Rourke out on the home plate; Leary going to third, and Dailey taking second, Hawkes tried a weak sacrifice hit to Wright, who fielded Leary out at home; Rowen then made a two-base hit, bringing in Dailey and Hawkes; Wood-head finished the inning by striking out. Manchester 3, Harvard 2. Fessenden led off in the midst of great applause with a two-base hit; Ernst followed with a single, Holden flied to second, and Fessenden scored on Wright's sacrifice hit, the latter going out at first; Howe was fielded out by second to first. The ninth inning was begun amid great excitement, the spectators being about equally divided in their preferences, and each party evincing much enthusiasm at the brilliant plays of their respective favorites; neither side scored in this inning, although O'Rourke led off with a base hit, his temerity in attempting to steal second rendered him an easy victim to Tyng and Sawyer. A heavy fall of rain rendered the continuance of the game an impossibility, and put a termination to one of the most exciting games ever witnessed and by far the best ever played by either of the contesting nines. The heavy batting, and at the same time the effective pitching, as may be seen by the number of players who struck out on either side, rendered the game more interesting than even the twenty-four inning 0 to 0 game of last year with the same nine.
