HARVARD, 22; WILLIAMS,2.

Heavy Batting by Harvard.- Morse Pitched an Excellent Game.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The nine defeated Williams at Williamstown last Saturday by a score of twenty-two runs to two, in a game which was called after the eighth inning to give the men time to catch the Boston train.

Taken all in all, Harvard made a very creditable showing and by her playing justified the advisability of a southern trip in its effect of rounding out a nine and giving the men the advantage of some practical experience early in the season. The game was won by steady, hard driving of the ball, fast base running, and Morse's heady, aggressive pitching. Plunkett and Jansen were together found for nineteen hits, most of which were clean and well placed. Haughton easily topped the list with a record of five hits, two of which netted two bases, out of six times at bat.

Up to the fourth inning Plunkett pitched fairly effective ball. Then he weakened and was hit at will for seven singles, which allowed the Varsity to score nine runs. Jansen who was substituted proved a little better, although the nine continued to bat and force in the runs.

Morse pitched remarkably steady ball throughout the game, holding Williams down to five hits, one of which was a scratch, and striking out nine men. Behind the bat he was finely supported by Reid, whose throwing and fielding were well-nigh faultless. At short, Laughlin's fielding was clean and fast.
