Tenth-Inning Score Sinks Stahlmen, 8-7

Crimson Nine Knots Score in Seventh but Loses Out on Costly Error at Third Base

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In a freezing wind that blow from the river across Soldiers Field, the Harvard nine dropped its second straight game of the season to Connecticut, Saturday, by a score of 8 to 7 in 10 innings. It was an uphill battle all the way for the losers, who managed to tie the game in the seventh inning only to see the winning marker cross the plate on an error in overtime.

The visitors wasted no time which, in the first stanza, Trojanowski, Jorgensen, and Connell banged our successive singles to score the first run; Connell was declared out for passing Jorgensen on the base paths. Singles by Dropo, Granato, and Dziadul's followed, Granato being erased trying to go from first to third on Dziadul's infield hit. Veal struck out to end the three run inning.

In the last half of the first, the Stahlmen got right back into the game with two runs on Don Swegan's double, his first of three hits, and a four base error by third baseman Jorgensen on an overthrow of first base. Bill Ayres singled, but was forced out at second.

The Crimson tied the score in the second when Saul Mariaschin singled, stole second, went to third on an infield out, and scored on Swegan's single. The Nutmeggers scored twice in the fourth on a single, a sacrifice, and three consecutive singles. A double play, Phelan to Swegan to Petrillo, cut the rally short.

In the fifth, two hits and an error upped the Connecticut total to seven, but, in their half of the same inning, Harvard pushed one run across on Swegan's triple and an infield out. They gained ground with two more runs, in the sixth on two errors and Ed Foynes' single.

In the last of the seventh, John Coppinger walked and stole second. After Ralph Petrillo filed out, Bill Harford walked, and Bill Ayres poked a single down the right field foul line to send Coppinger across with the tying counter. At this point, Hill was yanked and reliefer Oscar Chapin retired the side on a pop up and a strikeout.

The winning run came across in the tenth when Dziadul singled and was sacrificed to second. Griswold also attempted to sacrifice but Phelan had other ideas. He pegged the ball down to third in an attempt to get Dziadul, but the ball got away from Coppinger and the winning run came in.
