Nine Rallies to Top Tufts On Two Four-Run Bursts

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rallying for four runs in both the second and fourth innings, the Harvard baseball team coasted to a 9-6 victory over Tufts yesterday at Splinter Stadium.

The cold weather didn't hurt the Crimson batsmen any, especially Carter Lord, who rapped out three hits, including a two-run single in the fourth inning out-burst.

Ray Peters, the sophomore pitching sensation, hurled three perfect innings, striking out the side in the fourth. He replaced Harvard's starter, Bob Dorwart, another sophomore, who was hit hard by Tufts in his three-inning stint, giving up four runs.

Dorwart fared better at the plate, driving in the first two Crimson tallies with a bases-loaded single in the second inning. Joe O'Donnell added another run-scoring single to that rally.

A three-run Tufts triple in the top of the third proved Dorwart's undoing. It took a perfect relay from Dan Hootstein to Nelly Houston to O'Donnell to catcher Jeff Hall to avoid a grand-slam homer.

After Harvard's fourth inning rally, the two teams matched goose-eggs until the Crimson added another run in the seventh. Tufts-came back the next inning to pick up two unearned runs off George Lalich, Harvard's third sophomore pitcher, to close the scoring.

It was a pretty rough afternoon all around for Houston. The senior second baseman was robbed of a basehit in the fourth by his Tufts counterpart although he did manage to drive across a run.

In the bottom of the seventh, Houston, who broke a leg playing baseball this summer, was hit in the face by a pitched ball. He was reported doing well last night in the infirmary, but he may be out for several games.

The Crimson will open their Eastern League season this Saturday, playing Princeton away. Harvard and Princeton are both aiming to escape the League cellar, where they finished last season.
