HOLY CROSS WON SLOW GAME

Failure to Bunch Hits Proved Downfall of University Team.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Holy Cross defeated the University baseball team at Worcester Saturday afternoon 4 to 1. The game was slow and rather loosely played. Harvard lost because the men lacked the ability to hit when hits meant runs, and the base running of the University team was not of the first order. Had it not been for an error Holy Cross would have scored a shut out. Lynch, the undefeated freshman pitcher of the home team, kept the Harvard hits well scattered, and his varying degrees of speed proved very effective.

Babson started the game for the University team but was obliged to retire in favor of Ernst in the second inning. The latter pitched good ball, striking out five and holding Holy Cross down throughout the rest of the game with the exception of the seventh inning, when they scored once. Both Ernst and Babson were given good support, Harvard making but one error.

Babson walked three men in the first inning and Kennedy singled scoring one run. Babson then pulled himself out of the whole. In the succeeding session, however, he allowed two drives for two sacks each, one runner scoring. Ernst then entered the box but Whalen singled scoring Lynch, who had got the second two-bagger. Two singles, a fielder's choice, and a pass accounted for Holy Cross's last run in the seventh. Harvard scored its lone tally in the seventh when Clifford walked, stole second and came home, when O. Dwyer threw to catch Coon at first.
