The College Nine was defeated 13 to 3, yesterday afternoon by Brockton. The game from the very beginning was one sided and uninteresting. The college Nine at critical moments went all to pieces and showed a great need for better team play. The large score made by Brockton was due almost entirely to the errors of the Harvard team and not to the heavy batting of the Brockton Nine, for they had only one earned run to their credit.
The game was stopped in the eighth inning for lack of time, but the College Nine in those last few moments netted the only runs they had to their credit.
The following is the score by innings:
Innings, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Brockton, 0 6 0 6 0 1 0-13
College Nine, 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3-3
J. L. Valentine '98, has been appointed assistant manager of the College Baseball Nine.
