Saturday afternoon on Manhattan Field (New York City,) Princeton defeated Yale in the third and deciding game of their series. A crowd of fully 7,000 spectators witnessed the contest, and although it was evident from the first that the advantage lay with Princeton, yet the game on the whole was an exciting one. After the end of the fifth inning with the score 3 to 2 against her, Yale failed to score again; while Princeton made two more runs in the seventh.
The feature of the game was the pitching and batting of Young for Princeton, and the playing of Calhoun for Yale. The whole story of Yale's defeat lies in their weakness at the bat; the whole explanation of Princeton's victory lies in their sharp hitting and in Young's good right arm; for Young was far more effective than Bowers, the Yale pitcher. The score by innings was as follows:
Innings, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Princeton, 1 2 1 0 0 0 2 0 0-5
Yale, 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0-2
