SOPHOMORES, 9; FRESHMEN, 5

Freshmen Weak in Batting.- 1900 will Play '99 for the Championship.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Sophomores defeated the Freshmen yesterday afternoon on Holmes Field in a very exciting game, by a score of 9 to 5. As the contest between 1900 and 1901 was to be decided by a single game, this victory entitles 1900 to play '99 for the class championship.

The Freshmen took the lead in the latter part of the first inning, when both Milne and Clark were brought in by Jaynes's timely hit. In the third, however, three errors by 1901, two bases on balls, a three-base hit and two singles netted 1900 a total of seven runs. This lead the Freshmen were unable to overcome, although two more runs were secured in the fifth inning, when Whittemore and Jaynes scored on a mix-up of plays between Foster and Egbert. In the seventh, Egbert was hit by a pitched ball, and took second on Cropley's fumble of Edmunds's fly. Both Egbert and Edmunds were forced by George's base on balls, and scored on Fraunfelter's hit. Their final run the Freshmen made in the last inning, when Kendall was given his base, stole second and third, and came home on Edmunds's wild throw to third.

The outcome of the game was due in a large measure to 1900's superior batting. Foster allowed the Freshmen only one hit throughout the game, struck out seven men, but gave ten bases on balls. The fielding of both teams was creditable, considering the heavy diamond and unfavorable weather. Cutting made a neat catch in the second inning of Kendall's fly, and in the eighth assisted Sargeant in the second double play of the game. For the Freshmen, Fincke and Putnam both played a strong fielding game.
