BASEBALL.

Score of the First Game of the Season: Harvard, 17; Andover, 5.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard had no difficulty in defeating Andover in a seven-inning game on Saturday. The cold, raw wind hampered the players considerably, and in consequence there were several excusable errors. But on the whole, as far as Harvard was concerned, the game was well played and lively. The best work was done by Captain Whittemore, Scannell and Garrison. Whittemore at short covered much ground and made several beautiful stops. Scannell supported the rather variable pitching of Paine and Highlands in good form, and did great work at the bat, having four hits, with a total of six, to his credit. Garrison, besides making two safe hits, filled his position at centre without an error. Selfridge and Rand, the other two fielders, had no chance to distinguish themselves, but the latter showed up well at the bat. Winslow at third made one rather inexcusable error, but otherwise played a good game. Dean at second played steadily, but needs to be a little quicker. Hayes and Stevenson covered first without an error. It is a close race for this position between the two, with the advantage slightly in Hayes's favor, as he is the stronger at the bat. Paine and Highlands pitched an easy game, but they held the visitors down to seven hits. Altogether, Harvard found no difficulty in hitting Sedgwick, and batted out seventeen hits with a total of twenty-two.

For Andover Barnes at short played by far the best game of the afternoon. His fielding was sharp and effective, and he has to his credit seven assists and two put-outs with but one error. Drew caught Sedgwick's rather wild delivery very well, but the rest of the nine played in poor form.

Andover came to the bat first, Barnes got his base on balls, reached second on Drew's sacrifice, scored on Sedgwick's sacrifice. He ran fully 15 feet inside of third base, but as Umpire Keefe was watching the play at first he did not notice it and the run counted. Elliot bunted but got caught napping at first, and the side was out. For Harvard Whittemore got his base on balls reached third on two wild pitches but was put out while trying to steal home. Winslow got his base on balls, stole second and third and came home on Scannell's two-bagger. Hayes flied out to second and Selfridge was thrown out at first.

In the second inning Andover went out in one, two, three order while Harvard scored five runs. Rand hit safely and stole second, Dean got his base on balls and both scored on Paine's two-bagger. Garrison flied out Paine scored on Whittemore's single. Winslow hit to second who failed to throw Whittemore out at third and Scannell's two-base hit brought both men home. Scannell tried to reach third but was thrown out and Hayes flied out to first.

Andover scored once in the third. Holman reached second base on a couple of errors, got third on Barnes's sacrifice, came home on Drew's hit. Harker and Sedgwick both fled out. Five hits and two errors brought Harvard five more runs in this inning.

The fourth brought two more runs for Andover. Elliot flied out to Garrison. Risley hit safely. Highlands then let Edward's grounder through his legs and Risley went to second, both men advanced a base on Dayton's grounder. With three men on bases and one out Holman struck out. Harker hit safely to right field bringing in two runs. Dayton was put out trying to steal home. Harvard failed to score.

The fifth inning was a blank for Andover while Harvard scored three times. Garrison reached first on an error by Barnes and stole second. Highland's single carried him to third. Whittemore flied out to Barnes. Winslow then hit to right field who missed the ball. Andover got rattled and three runs were made in short order before the ball got back to the diamond.

Andover scored once more in the sixth owing to two singles and an error by Whittemore, while five save hits and some good base running brought in three more runs all of which were earned. Andover came to the bat once more but could do nothing. The score:

HARVARD.

Yale, 14; Wesleyan, 2.Yale opened the baseball season Saturday afternoon, meeting Wesleyan in New Haven in a game of six innings. For three innings the match was even, and marked by good playing; but the cold, raw wind then rendered clean work impossible, and wild throws were frequent. Carter and Greenway did good work. Redington played well at second. Yale's new players did poorly. Wesleyan's team work was inferior. The score was: Yale, 14; Wesleyan, 2.
