Yale's Long Line of Freshman Victories Broken by Harvard, 86.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The freshmen played their second game with the Yale freshmen on Jarvis field on Saturday. In view of Yale's victory at New Haven, the result of Saturday's game was a most agreeable surprise to the whole college. The game was called at 3 o'clock with Yale at the bat. Bremner went out on a fly to Nichols, Lang followed on a foul bound to Allen, Brigham made a base hit but was thrown out at second by Allen. Allen went out on a foul fly to Dutcher. Nichols hit hard for two bases, but was left on second, Smith going out on a fly to Dutcher and Chamberlain striking out. In the second inning Morley made a base hit, Dutcher got to second base on Bruner's error, Morley going to third. Stewart then struck out, after which Corkery made a hit on which Morley and Dutcher scored. Corkery went to second on Phillips' error and scored on Odell's hit. Odell went to second and scored on Bremner's hit, Bremner soon went to second and scored on Lang's hit. Brigham took his base on balls allowing Lang to go to second, but both were left on bases as Morley was thrown out at first by Phillips. The prospect now looked gloomy for Harvard, as the score stood 5 to 0 in favor of Yale, but the freshmen went to the bat with the evident determination of making runs and succeeded nobly.

Kimball led off with a hit and at once went to second on Phillips' hit. Edgerly hit a grounder to Dutcher, who threw wild over first, Kimball and Phillips scoring and Edgerly going to third and scoring on Bruner's hit. Bruner went to second on a passed ball and scored. Collins went out on a foul fly to Bremner. Allen got his base on an attempted put out, stole second and scored on Nichols' hit. Nichols went to second, Smith got his base on Dutcher's error, and both scored on Lang's error. Chamberlain hit to third and was thrown out at first. Kimball got his base on Oliver's wild throw; but was left on first as Phillips went out on a fly to Stewart. In the third inning Yale went out in one, two, three order. Edgerly hit to Lang and was thrown out at first, Bruner took his base on balls and went to second on a passed ball; Collins went out on a fly to Odell, Allen striking out. In the fourth inning Oliver got his base on Phillips' error, but was thrown out at second, and Odell went out at first, assisted by Phillips. Bremner made the circuit of the bases on a beautiful hit over right field. Lang hit a hard grounder to Edgerly who made a pretty stop and threw him out at first. Smith made a hit for Harvard, but was left on second, the next three men going out. Yale was retired in one, two, three order in the fifth inning. Phillips made one of the longest hits made on the grounds this year and scored a home run for Harvard. Edgerly got his base on Lang's ??? and went to second. Bruner struck out. Edgerly went to third on a wild pitch, Collins going out on a foul fly to Dutcher. Allen was given his base on balls and stole second, but was left there, as Nichols was assisted out at first by Lang. In the sixth inning Yale was again retired without a run, only one man reaching first.

Harvard made five runs in the sixth inning by heavy batting, assisted by errors. Smith went out on a fly to Stewart. Chamberlain hit for two bags and went to third on Kimball's hit. Kimball stole second and both men scored on Phillips' three bagger. Edgerly made a two base hit, on which Phillips came home. Bruner went out on a foul fly to Odell. Edgerly stole third and scored on a wild pitch. Collins reached first on Stewart's muff of Odell's throw, stole second and went to third on a passed ball. Allen hit to Oliver and was given his base on an error while Edgerly scored. Allen stole second, but was left there, as Nichols went out on a long fly to Brigham. In the seventh inning Yale added three runs to her score. Bremner made a hit and scored on Lang's two bagger. Brigham went out on a foul fly to Allen and Lang went to third on an attempted put out, scoring on Morley's hit. Dutcher hit to Edgerly, who put Morley out at second. Phillips threw wild to first and Dutcher went to second, taking third on a wild pitch and scoring on Stewart's hit. Stewart went to second on a wild pitch. Corkery got his base on Smith's fumble, Stewart going to third; both men were left on bases as Oliver fouled out to Allen.

Harvard was retired in one, two, three, order in the seventh inning. Yale was kept from scoring in the eighth inning although she had three men on bases. Harvard made three runs in the eighth inning. Phillips fouled out. Edgerly hit safely and Bruner took his base on balls, Edgerly going to second; both men were advanced one base on a wild pitch. Collins hit to Oliver who put Bruner out at third. Edgerly scored and Collins went to second. Allen got his base on an attempted put-out and both men scored on a wild pitch, Nichols took his base on balls and Smith went out at first assisted by Oliver.

Yale went to the bat for the last time with the score 16 to 9 against her, and it remained so, as Stewart struck out, Corkery made a hit but was left on first, and Oliver flied out to Collins and Odell fouled out to Allen. The freshmen now poured into the field in large numbers and carried off their victorious nine on their shoulders, the upper classmen separating and cheering as they passed. The class collected in front of Stoughton and cheered each member of the nine. All the classes gave three hearty cheers for Captain Phillips who had throughout proved himself an efficient captain and whose cool playing has steadied the nine in critical places.

Both nines played an unsteady game, and batted heavily. Bremner played a good game as he was up at the bat the greater part of the time. Bremner and Stewart led in fielding for Yale, Bremner and Lang in batting. Nichols pitched a steady game and was finely supported by Allen. Phillips played a good game and Edgerly distinguished himself by a fine stop and his daring base running. Phillips, Edgerly, Nichols and Kimball led in batting. The score:
