Lennie Lunder's cousin pitches for Colby. Yesterday afternoon he came in to relieve in the seventh inning with the bases leaded and got Lennie to fly out. But in the tenth, with a Crimson runner perched on second, Lunder spoiled the family act by slamming a fat one-one pitch into left to win the game 4 to 3.
The events that proceded this bit of Merriwellian drama were not so exciting. The home team built up an early 3 to 1 edge, along which Ira Godin tightrope-walked until three sharp hits and a two-base error in the eighth tied up the contest. Crimson bats were ominously silent all day, the first clutch of three scores coming from a walk, two sacrifices, a balk and only one hit.
Godin did a pretty fair job. He limited Colby--a heavy-hitting team in its own league, at least--to eight hits. Although he did give up there straight safeties in the eighth, he would have been out of danger if Will Eldridge of the Bruins hadn't thrown a downfield block on Myles Huntington as he came into second. Eldridge was out, but Huntington's off-balance throw to complete the double play got by Coulson and two runs were in.
Gannon, Huntington Hit
The only bright note on the hitting side was the fact that two men with hitherto slim averages found the northern pitching to their taste. Chip Gannon and Huntington each got two clean hits to boost their standing considerably.
*Ran for Coulson in 10th.
