Although but eight innings of the
Fordham-C U. game were played, it re
quired but six of them for the visitors
to register their nine runs off Johnson
and Trayers. no scoring having occurred
in the last two sessions.
Most of the fireworks were seen in
the fifth frame, when seven tallies were
recorded by Fordham as a result of fire
hits, a pass, and three nasty errors.
One run bad been made by them in
the opener, and the ninth came in the
sixth inning, when Kane staged his sec
