Captain Freddy Keyes' ninth inning homer broke up the tie ball game with Tufts yesterday afternoon at Soldiers Field, and gave the Crimson nine its first victory over a Jumbo aggregation in three seasons.

The score was bound up at one tally apiece when bespectacled Fred came to the plate, with one away. He connected squarely with the second ball pitcher "Olie" Olsen served up, driving it into deep left center for the run that emptied the stands for the afternoon, and left the home team on the heavy end of the 2 to 1 score. His round-the-sacks clout, the first for the Crimson since the spring trip, gave him two hits for three times. up; the other was a single in the third frame.

Lanky Charlie Brackett showed a return to his Sophomore form by hurling fine ball, allowing only three hits and two walks. Olsen, Jumbo moundman, struck out seven men, but allowed seven walks.

The first Crimson run came in the fifth. Captain Keyes drew a walk, Parsons flied out to center field, Bart Harvey reached on the third baseman's error, and Bill Tully was walked, loading the bases. Ed Buckley flied out to center field, and Keyes came in. With men on second and third, Lou Clay came up, and hit out to the pitcher.

The Yardlings won their game with Worcester Academy, 11 to 7. The school-boys scored four runs in the first inning, but their pitcher went to pieces, and the relief hurler was little better. Warren Berg was on the mound for the Crimson.
