BROWN, 5; HARVARD, 1.

Harvard Weak in Batting.- Costly Errors at Critical Times.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The 'Varsity was defeated in the first game with Brown yesterday afternoon on Soldiers Field by the score of 5 to 1. Poor batting and several costly errors were largely responsible for the nine's defeat. In the third inning, after two men were out, two singles and Gammons's triple netted Brown three runs. The 'Varsity was able to cross the plate but once throughout the game, and in six innings were retired in regular order. In the fifth, Haughton singled, took second on a passed ball, and finally scored on Lauder's error. In the seventh inning, with two men out, Brown still futher increased her lead when Fultz and Gammons scored on inexcusable errors by Laughlin and Reid.

The make-up of the 'Varsity nine was considerably changed during the game. Cozzens started in to pitch, and for two innings proved very effective, but was found for three hard hits in the third. Fitz was then substituted and showed up unusually well, although he allowed four bases on balls. In the second inning, while attempting to steal second, Rand severely wrenched his knee, which has been troubling him of late. This unfortunate accident will probably prevent his playing again for some time. McCornick was then put in at right field, while Burgess and Lynch were moved to center and left.

The fielding of the 'Varsity, was on the whole indifferent, although they had few chances. At second, Haughton played a sharp game, making a star catch in the fifth inning, and fielding two difficult liners in excellent form.
