Playing as an AAU club rather than a varsity competitor. Harvard's water polo team took it easy this spring, with a reduced practice schedule and a relaxed team attitude.
The nonchalance caught up with the aquamen this weekend, though, as Harvard finished second in what was billed as an all-Ivy League tournament in Ithacs. N.Y., but which featured only three squads.
The Boston Red Sox and Fernando Valenzuels kept their streaks alive yesterday. The Sox lost their seventh consecutive ball game. 3-1, to the Minnesota Twins. that's the longest losing streak in four years, and the latest was a four-hitter for Pete Redfern and Dough Corbett. "I've been around baseball for a long time, but I've never seen anything like this." Ralph Houk said. "It's almost unbelievable, incredible. Everything that could go wrong has."
For Valenzuela, meanwhile, things are still going over the Montreal Expos--Valenzuela, who has pitched four shutouts and six complete games, now has an ERA of 0.33.
