Base Ball.

Harvard 3; Newark 4.

The game between Harvard and the Newark team yesterday afternoon on Holmes Field was very evenly contested and well played throughout, until the tenth inning, when Harvard made errors which cost her the game. Soule did not play, and Dean took his place at short-stop, Frothingham, '93, covering second base. Dean played his position finely, and Frothingham did all that was required of him, although he did not have a chance to show what he was worth. Alward played a steady game and batted well. Bates was in the box for Harvard the first three innings. He threw an easy ball, but the visitors did not hit him hard. He was a trifle wild in the third inning and Newark took advantage of the circumstance and made some runs. After that Downer was put in and pitched finely throughout the rest of the game. For the visitors, the work of Smith at short-stop and Mansell in center-field was very fine.

In seven out of Harvard's ten innings the men went out in one-two-three order. In the first inning, after two men were out, Dean got his base on balls and stole second; Trafford got to first on Dooms' fumble,-Newark's only error-and Dean took third; Trafreached second on the same play; they were both left. Newark had one man left on base in the same inning. In the third Bates flied out to center; Mason got his base on balls, stole second and came in on Linn's sinfile; Linn was sent to third on Dean's two bagger, and both scored on Alward's hit.

In Newark's half, Gilbert got first on Dean's error; Johnson's base on balls forced him to second and a wild pitch advanced each a base; Miller got four balls and the bases were filled; Gilbert and Johnson scored on Field's hit and Miller scored on Smith's single. Neither side scored again till the tenth. In the last half of that inning Johnson went out, Dean to Trafford; Miller and Field each made a hit; Howland muffed Dooms' liner and the bases were full; Downer pitched well and struck Smith out; with two men out, Mansell knocked a high fly to Mason, who misjudged it first and then slipped in trying to get it. Field scored the winning run on the misplay. The score:
