STRONG FINISH IN CLOSING FRAMES GIVES CRIMSON WIN

Connects for Two Hits Out of Three Times at Bat--Hurwitz Twirls Well Until Disastrous Sixth

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

After being held scoreless for five innings by Hurwitz, left-handed Rhode Island State twirler, the Harvard baseball forces came to life in the sixth inning of yesterday's game and pounded out eight runs in three frames to walk off with the ball game.

Up to this time the visitors were leading by six runs and Hurwitz appeared to have the game well in hand. He had fanned eight men and allowed but one hit and to most everyone it looked like merely a question of how many runs the Rhode Islanders would win by.

F. E. Nugent '30 led off the Crimson half of the sixth with a ringing single to left, the first solid hit off Hurwitz. E. H. McGrath '31 followed with a base on balls and Harvard had its first real scoring opportunity. B. H. Ticknor '31 fanned, but Captain G. E. Donaghy '29 came through with a smack to right which scored Nugent and put McGrath on third. Coach Mitchell here inserted S. L. Batchelder '31 in place of J. A. Prior '29 who was having an off day with the willow, and the former grounded out to second base, McGrath counting on the play. The rally ended there as T. W. Gilligan '31 flied out to centerfield.

The Crimson warriors returned to the attack in the next inning and collected two more valuable tallies. With one down J. D. Dudley '31 beat out an infield single and advanced to second on a single by Howard Whitmore '29. Here Trumbull, visiting second baseman, contributed a bauble on Nugent's roller and Dudley scored. McGrath walked and the bases were filled. Ticknor grounded to the infield and Whitmore crossed the rubber with the second tally while McGrath was being thrown out at second.

The real damage was done in the eighth when two disastrous errors by Hurwitz's teammates contributed largely to his downfall. Gilligan singled, Bassett walked, Dudley sacrificed them along a notch and Nugent jammed the bags by drawing four wide ones. McGrath smacked a single to right and the tying runs came in leaving men on first and third. It was here that the Rhode Island defense weakened and the game was lost and won. McKenzie, behind the bat, foolishly tried to catch McGrath as he went down and threw the ball into centerfield, Nugent scoring. And then to complete the damage, the centerfielder heaved past third and McGrath trotted in with Harvard's final fally. HARVARD   a.b.  r.  h.  p.o.  a.  e.
