The powerful Red and Blue nine from the University of Pennsylvania wreaked vengeance last Saturday at Philadelphia on the Crimson forces for their defeat of the week before, and shut them out, 3 to 0. Peterson, the giant right-hander of the Quaker team, limited the Harvard nine to four scattered blows.
Coach Davidson, who was in charge in the absence of Coach Mitchell, put W. H. MacHale '31 on the mound. The latter pitched good ball until the eighth, when four hits were bunched off him for two runs. Until this stanza, only one run was secured off his delivery, that in the opening inning when Carlsten, lead-off man for the Red and Blue, clouted a home run.
It was not until the penultimate frame that the auburn-topped sophomore got into any real difficulty, however. Peterson started the downfall with a single to left, and took second on Caristen's second hit of the day. Wilmer flied out, but Prager walked, filling the bases. Walker's hit scored Peterson, but on the same play Prager was caught off second. At this juncture, Howard Whitmore '29 was sent in to quell the Quaker bats. He was greeted by Becker's single to right, which was responsible for the last Pennsylvania run. Slaughter was out when his bunt on the third strike rolled foul, and the damage was done.
