Defeated the All=Cambridge Nine in a Practice Game Yesterday Afternoon.

The 'Varsity nine easily defeated the All-Cambridge nine yesterday afternoon on Holmes Field in a practice game of seven innings, by a score of 25 to 2.

The 'Varsity, after the reaction of the Andover game last Saturday, showed a wonderful improvement in thier batting strength. Si teen hits with a total of thirty-five were made off the Cambridge pitchers, although loose fielding caused the total to be much larger than it really should have been. Rand easily led the batting list with two triples and two singles, out of four times at bat. Foster hit for three bases once and once for a home run, Laughlin made a double and a triple and Haughton a triple and two singles. Taken all in all, it was the hardest hitting the 'Varsity has done this season, and is a fair indication of the improvement that has been made in this direction during the past few days. All of the hits were clean, the longer ones being line drives out of the reach of the out-fielders.

In the field the 'Varsity had comparatively few chances, the bulk of the work being done by the pitchers. In the first three innings, Morse pitched steady, effective ball. Only one hit was made off his delivery and six men struck out. Fitz and Hayes also did consistently good work.

The weakness of the All-Cambridge nine was most apparent in fielding and at the bat. In the outfield a number of balls were badly misjudged and a large number of wild throws to third and first enabled the 'Varsity to score many unearned runs.
