Sophomores Defeat the Freshmen in the First Game of the Series.


Seven to two was the score by which '97 beat '98 yesterday afternoon. The game was on the whole well-played and interesting. For four innings the playing of both sides was rather loose but then the men settled down and neither side scored again. The freshmen missed several good chances to make put outs and plainly showed the lack of coaching. However, towards the end of the afternoon they pulled together and put up an excellent game. With a good coach and two weeks' practice this years' nine would be the best one any freshman class has had for a long time. The weakest spot on the nine is first base. Hall, who played this position for three innings, put up a decidedly wretched game of ball and was directly responsible for four runs. Walker who took his place was a little better but he too was very unsteady and unreliable. The catching of Brown was not all that could be desired. He was very slow in starting after foul balls and covered very little ground. Cozzens pitched a very good game. But four scattered hits were made off him and he struck out eight men. His fielding however ought to be improved. Hayes, at short, played by far the best game of the afternoon. His fielding was clean and sure and his throwing very accurate. The freshmen found no difficulty in hitting the ball. Only three men struck out and one got his base on balls. They were, however, unable to bat effectively and as a general rule could not succeed in getting the ball past the infield or in keeping it on the ground. For the sophomores Fox and Stevens played the best games. The former accepted thirteen chances without an error. Stevens made three errors, one of which was excusable as it was not his ball, but he otherwise fielded excellently, covering a great deal of ground and making some good stops. The batting of the whole team was rather poor. Garrison as usual was especially weak and Beale was not up to his usual form.

Ninety-seven came to the bat first. Lord struck out, Beale got his base on balls and went to third on Fox's hit. Cozzens made a brilliant stop of Scott's liner and threw him out at first, Fox going to second. Martin then knocked an easy fly to Hall who misjudged it badly then made a wild throw, and Beale and Fox both scored. Martin was thrown out in trying to steal second. The freshmen went out in one, two, three order.

In the second, Stevens hit safely and went to second on a wild pitch, and to third on an error. Anderson got his base on balls and stole second. A passed ball then let Stevens home and Anderson to third. The latter scored on Gregory's hit. This was all the scoring done this inning. Poor base-running lost the freshmen a chance to score. In the third inning two bases on balls and erratic fielding on Hall's part brought in one more run for '97. The freshmen made both their runs in this inning. With one man out, Cozzens reached first on a wild throw by Gregory. Haskell got his base on balls and Cozzens went to second. Both men then stole a base and scored on McVey's hit. Two more runs for '97 in the fourth ended the scoring. Anderson got his base on an error, went to second on a passed ball and scored on another passed ball. Gregory struck out. Garrison got his base on balls, stole second, went to third on Lord's single, and came home on Beale's grounder, which Hayes fielded to first. Fox struck out. During the rest of the game '97 only once got past first base. For '98, Hayes, by good base running, reached third twice again, but was left there.
