Freshmen Beaten.


Last Saturday at Philadelphia Ninety-nine's long string of victories was broken by the Pennsylvania freshman who won the second game with Harvard by the score of nine to five. This is Ninety-nine's last game and the series with Pennsylvania is a tie, with one game each.

The Harvard men seemed to have an off day and put up one of the worst games they have played this season. Their fielding was wretched and they could only make four hits during the entire game.

Fitz pitched for the first seven innings and then Mains took his place. Both did well but their support was so poor that if the batter hit the ball at all he usually got first on an error.

All the Harvard team made errors with the exception of Litchfield and the two pitchers, but Mills was the weakest point on the nine, as he made four errors out of six chances.

The Pennsylvania team put up a much better game than they did at Cambridge, and out-played Harvard completely. Thatcher pitched especially well and was much more effective than he was a week ago. Robinson and Dicks played the best game and Wade led both teams at the bat.

In the first inning a base on balls, a stolen base, and an error by Mills gave Pennsylvania their first run. Neither side scored again till the fourth, when Lynch got first on an error and was brought in by Fitz's home run. This put Harvard ahead with the score two to one, but in the next inning three bases on balls and more errors by Harvard let in three more runs. After this the result was not in doubt for an instant, Pennsylvania scoring four runs in the seventh and one in the eighth, while the best Harvard could do was one in the sixth, seventh and eighth.

The batting order of the two nines was as follows:


Pomeroy, 3b. Thompson, 2b.

Ramsey, 1. f. Lynch, r. f.

Robinson, 2b. Morse, 1. f.

Higgins. c. f. Fitz, Mains, p.

Lucas, 1b. Davis, c.

Dicks, c. Litchfield, 3b.

Wade, r. f. McCall, c. f.

Watt, s. Mills, s.

Thatcher, p. Sherwin, 1b.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Penn. '99, 1 0 0 0 3 0 4 1 0-6

Harvard '99, 0 0 0 2 0 1 1 1 0-5
