Yesterday afternoon Andover Academy defeated the College Nine in a clean and well-played game.
The College Nine lost the game in the second inning, when they allowed Andover to score six runs, chiefly on account of errors. Andover, however, batted the ball hard, making thirteen hits in the eight innings. Their fielding, too, was snappy and accurate, especially the throwing to bases. Arnold, after the first two innings, pitched a good game, striking out ten men, although he gave several bases on balls. Martin did decidedly the best work for Harvard, making two hits and playing an errorless game in the field. The score by innings was:-
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Andover, 0 6 0 2 0 1 0 0-9
Harvard, 1 0 1 2 1 1 0-6
