JUNIORS ARE CHAMPIONS.

Sophomores Beaten 1 4-7 in the Deciding Game of the Series.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The final game in the class baseball series was played on Soldiers Field yesterday afternoon, and resulted in a victory for the Juniors, the score being 14 to 7. The game was a very interesting one and the issue remained in doubt until the middle of the fifth inning, when Franklin was substituted for Cochrane by '99. After that the Sophomores were unable to obtain a hit, and Foster became ineffective, allowing '99 to increase their score from 4 to 14. The Sophomores lost the game by weakness at the bat and by two rather inexcusable errors. For '99 the most effective batting was done by Nowell and Dibblee, while Franklin's fine pitching in the last innings was the feature of the game.

Both sides went out in short order until the second half of the third inning. Then '99 scored four runs, none of which were earned, however. Jaffray was hit by a pitched ball, Taylor got his base on balls, and the bases were filled by Litchfield's taking first on another wild throw by Foster. An error by Rainbolt allowed McCall to reach first, while Jaffray scored. Dibblee made a pretty drive over third base which, aided by his drawing the throw at second, enabled three more men to cross the plate. With one out and Cochrane on first, Nowell flied to Rainbolt and a double play caught Cochrane at second.

Cutting opened the fourth inning with a safe hit. Cochrane then went to pieces and gave a number of bases on balls, which, together with two passed balls by Taylor and George's hit, enabled 1900 to score five runs.

In the next inning, 1900 scored two runs by good batting, aided by Cochrane's wild throw over Dibblee. With only one out Franklin then went into the box for '99 and struck out the next two men. For the rest of the game, 1900 was helpless at the bat and the contest was decidedly one-sided. '99 was kept from making more than one run in the fifth by the clever work of Edmunds and Foster who caught two men off bases, but there was no chance for the fielders in the last innings, the game resolving itself into a pitcher's contest.
