Practice Game With Lawrence.
Yesterday afternoon a team composed mainly of University substitutes was defeated by the Lawrence team of the New England League on the Freshman diamond by a score of 7 to 4. The Lawrence team hit the University pitchers hard in three innings and this coupled with a few errors on the part of the infield, gave them seven runs. In the seventh inning the University scored one run on a base on balls and a two-base hit by Coon; and in the eighth, three more on hits by Hoogs, Milholland and Reynolds. Hitchcock, Hardy, Bartholf and Tomes all pitched, Hitchcock and Tomes being the most effective.
The Freshmen played a nine made up almost entirely of regular University players, which was won by the Freshmen 7 to 3. They had little difficulty in hitting the second string University pitchers.
