Strong Boston College Nine Hangs 7-3 Loss on Crimson

Two Eagle Home Runs Help to Whip Varsity Nine as Godin Pitches in Defeat at Newton

By Irvin M. Horowitz

Boston College's well-balanced baseball team combined hitting strength, fielding finesse, and steady pitching yesterday afternoon to had the Varsity nine its third defeat in eight starts, 7 to 3, in a smoothly-played game at Alumni Field, Newton.

The Eagles played errorless ball--no mean feat in a college game--and managed to touch Ira Godin, who went the distance for the Crimson, for eight timely hits, seven of which contributed to their scoring. Don O'Brien, BC's right-handed pitcher, limited Coach Dolph Samborski's squad to five blows, and was effectively cool throughout the proceedings.

godin, who pitched creditably, came to grief on hits to right field, where Len Lunder had trouble with two long drives that resulted in home runs and produced three B. C. runs. The Eagles scored in the first inning when Frank O'Sullivan's vicious double to left scored John Brosnahan, who had walked, from first base.

Homer Scores Two

Three more runs came across for the home team in the fourth, two on John Murphy's homer which got past Lunder along the right field line. An error by John Coppinger and two consecutive singles gave the Eagles their fourth marker.

Harvard finally struck back in the sixth. After Godin walked, Caulfield doubled down the left-field line, the second hit off O'Brien, and both runners scored on Bill Fitz's single off Bernie Lanoue's glove at first base.

Lanoue's home run to right-center, which Lunder nearly grabbed after a long run, gave Boston College its fifth run in the seventh, and O'Sullivan, who played an excellent game in right field for the Eagles, unloaded his second extra-base hit--a triple to right center--to drive in the last two runs in the eighth.

Varsity Tallies in Ninth

Bill Fitz, the only Varsity player to get two hits, tallied the Crimson's third run in the ninth. He walked, took second on Walt Coulson's long fly, moved to third on a fielder's choice, and completed the circuit when Saul Mariaschin singled to right.
