THE SOUTHERN TRIP.

Three Games Won.--Defeated by West Point.--Poor Bunting and Baserunning.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University baseball squad returned to Cambridge yesterday morning from the southern trip which has occupied the April recess. During the week, three games were won, and one lost. A week ago Saturday, Georgetown was defeated by a score of 3 to 0; on the following Wednesday, Annapolis was beaten 15 to 3; on Thursday a team composed largely of substitutes, defeated the Annapolis second team by a score of 10 to 3; and on Saturday, West Point defeated the University team, 6 to 4.

On the whole, the trip was fairly successful. The men were enabled to get a week of good practice, and were aided in their work by perfect weather conditions. Only in a few cases was any improvement shown in fielding, which was, nevertheless, for the most part, fast and accurate. In batting, there were some cases of individual improvement, but as a whole, the team did not bunch their hits to advantage. The most evident and universal weakness, however was the bunting, which was at no time satisfactory. Poor base-running was another conspicuous fault in the work of the team, and was the most important factor in the defeat by West Point.

Of the pitchers, Clarkson showed the best control, and was at all times effective. His batting, however, was weak, since he made but three hits out of fourteen times at bat. Stillman was in the box only six innings during the trip, when he showed fair control. At centrefield, he covered more ground than last year, but his hitting has fallen off considerably. Coburn had fair speed, but showed the poorest control of the three. This weakness together with the poor base-running, practically cost the West Point game. Behind the bat, R. P. Kernan caught very well, and showed vast improvement over his form of last year, while his throwing to base left nothing to be desired. Although he has improved in his batting, the fault of striking too hard was still conspicuous. In the Annapolis game, however, he succeeded in making two home runs and a three-base hit out of six times at bat. Stephenson, while showing some improvement in covering the ball, proved weak on low pitches, and slow in throwing to bases. At the bat, he stepped too quickly, and did not watch out the balls. At first base, Randall was not only listless himself, but failed to inspire the rest of the team with any life. While his batting work was fairly good, he proved very slow on the bases. Of the second baseman, Coolidge batted better than heretofore, but was not up to his usual form in either bunting or base-running. Skilton showed little improvement in any department of the game. Matthews at short-stop played more accurately in the field than in the practice this spring, but showed in his batting an inability to hit swift balls. Murphy did not play well either in the field or at the bat. At third base, Story was erratic in his fielding, but showed slight improvement in his work at the bat. In the West Point game, he failed to score a home run by not touching second base. Carr was the most reliable base-runner of the team, but proved weak at the bat. Among the outfielders, Daly showed development in batting and covering ground in the field. H. D. Kernan also fielded well, but his batting still showed very poor form. Little improvement was noticeable in the work of either Greenough or Fischel.

HARVARD, 3; GEORGETOWN, 0.

A week ago Saturday the nine defeated Georgetown by a score of 3 to 0 at Georgetown. From beginning to end, the game was almost entirely a pitcher's battle, between Clarkson and Drill, in which the former had the advantage, striking out thirteen men, and allowing but two base hits. The University team also made few hits, two of the three runs being made on errors. In the fourth inning Daly reached first on a fielder's choice and, after getting two more bases on an error by McGettigan, scored the first run on an error by the third baseman. In the sixth inning, Randall reached first on an error by Dowling and was advanced to the plate by this by Daly and Kernan. The third run was made in the seventh inning when Matthews, after reaching first on an error, stole second, was advanced to third by Randall, and scored on a passed ball.

Save for Clarkson's pitching the playing, while steady, was not worthy of comment. H. Kernan did the best work at the bat, making two of Harvard's three hits.

HARVARD, 15; ANNAPOLIS, 3.

On Wednesday, April 22, the University team played the Naval Cadets at Annapolis, winning 15 to 3. This game was perhaps the most encouraging of the trip, since the Harvard team proved its ability to hit the ball. In this department, Coolidge and R. P. Kernan were especially strong, each meeting three hits, and the latter two home runs and a three-base hit. The fielding of the team, however, was not so clean as in the game with Georgetown, and the base-running was crude and lifeless. Coburn pitched a fairly steady game, striking out nine men, and allowing but three bases on balls.

Harvard scored her first two runs in the second inning by a massing of hits, and followed with another in the fourth by H. D. Kernan, which put Harvard in the lead, 3 to 2. Well placed hits, with accasional errors by Annapolis, brought in two men in the fifth and sixth innings respectively. In the eighth, Harvard scored eight more runs, five of which may be credited to Kernan's home run and Clarkson's three-base hit.

HARVARD, 10; ANNAPOLIS, 3.

On Thursday, the Harvard and Annapolis teams, both composed almost entirely of substitutes, played a practice game which resulted in a victory for Harvard by a score of 10 to 3. As many of the Harvard team played in positions in which they had had no practice, the work was very crude and erratic. The batting was also weak, Carr and Greenough leading with two hits apiece.
