A little over a month ago, the Freshman and Junior Varsity baseball teams started off their schedules with a tie. The Jayvees got' progressively better. The Freshmen didn't, and Saturday's Yale finales provided a fitting ending for what was a successful season for the Jayvees, a more dismal year for the Yardlings. The Jayvees won 16 to 8, the Freshmen lost, 9 to 7.
Thus, Lloyd Harper's Jayvee crew winds up its campaign with ten wins, a loss, and a tie while the Freshmen, under Warren Berg, finish with two wins, seven losses, and four ties.
Landon Clay came through in fine style for the Jayvees, holding the Elis to seven hits while his mates were pounding out 14, including five extra base blows. Hal Moffle blasted a homer and a double, Fred Glimp and Steve Howe unloaded triples, and Clay himself produced a homer. Moffle and Bucky Harrison led the attack with three hits apiece.
Visitors Never Headed
The visitors scored once in the first and from then on were never headed, coming up with a six-run sixth after they had all but clinched the contest. Four Blue pitchers were sent to the showers.
One big inning was all the Eli Freshmen needed to forge ahead and overtake the Yardlings, who led 7 to 5 going into the sixth. But three errors, two hits, a stolen base, and a couple of fielder's choices were all the home team needed to score four times.
Roy Meears, who took over the pitching reins from starter George Emmons in the first inning, had things pretty much his own way, giving up only one run before the fatal sixth.
