In spite of the rain yesterday afternoon the Pennsylvania game was played as scheduled. For the first five inning it rained continuously and good playing was very difficult. The pitchers had to put sawdust on the ball before every delivery so the game dragged somewhat. About five o'clock the rain stopped and the rest of the game was quickly played. Harvard played a very good fielding game throughout, the only errors being two wild throws which were excusable because of the slippery condition of the ball. Pennsylvania fieded rather loosely at times but made many good plays. Harvard batted freely and the infielders were kept busy. Downer was very effective and though but two men struck out, Pennsylvania was unable to hit safely.

In the first inning Updegrove made a hit, and scored on a wild pitch and Swift's long ground hit to left field. This was Pennsylvania's only run. For Harvard, Dean made a clean hit to left field, Linn got a base on balls and both scored on a wild throw and Willard's high hit to short centre field.

During the next two innings both sides were easily disposed of. In the fourth Dean and Linn scored again on hits by Linn and Willard, a double by Henshaw which struck third base and bounded off, and a sacrifice by Howland. Both runs were earned. Pennsylvania got two men on bases in the fourth and fifth innings but careful fielding prevented them from scoring. After the fifth inning but two Pennsylvania men reached first and both were left. In the sixth Dean and Linn again scored. Both were given bases on balls. Dean came home on wild throws by catcher and centre fielder, and Linn on sacrifices by Howland and Henshaw.

In the eighth inning Linn made a hit and scored on Howland's hit to right who fumbled, allowing the latter to reach third base. Howland came in on Willard's hit. Willard was caught at third by Hawley's grounder. Henshaw got first on balls, followed by Hawley on Willard's put-out, and Corning on Updegrove's fumble. All three scored on Downer's fine hit to centre for two bases. Downer made the last run on Linn's hit.

The features of the game were the long running catches of Howland and Bowman. Dean, though evidently out of condition, played a fine game both in the field and at the bat. The batting of Linn Howland and Willard was also very good. The score:
