A GREAT GAME.
3lemson Defeats Newberry in an Exciting
Contest by a Score of Six
The game of ball between Clemson
mnd Newberry on the college diamond
Wednesday afternoon was a fitting
lose to a season full of fine exhibitions
f the national game. '['he home team
vas up against the strongest college
eam in the South, and though they
vere defeated it was by a very narrow
nargin, and the Newberry boys are
ustly proud of their work at every
oint in the game. From start to finish
he contest was close and exciting, and
iot until the end of the game, when
he score stood six to five in favor of
he visitors, could the result be pre
licted with the least degree of certainty.
Simpson was in the box for New
lerry. lie had plenty of steam and
urves to spare, and pitched good ball,
,lowing eight hits and striking out
ve men. Dendy, who tossed the
phere for the visitors, was in fine
hape, with his slow ball allowing only i
ne hit and striking five. Cabaniss
ehind the bat for Newberry and Max- I
tell for Clemson held everything within
heir reach. In fact, almost without I
xception every man on both sides did 1
is full share.
For the first five and a half innings
here was no score on either side and i
or the most. part it was three nen u1p
nd three men down. In the third a
ming Sitton, who on many a field has
nde a great reputation for hard hat
ing went (Iown before Simpson's speedy
urves, three times madly beating the
ir. In the fourth Clemson was pre
ented from scoring only by Coleman's
eautiful throw from left field, cutting
fr a man at home, making one of the
rettiest and closest plays seen on the
ianmond this year.
In the sixth inning Clemson piled up
tree to her credit. Dendy took first i
n an error by Roesel, and Chisolm went I
first on a hit. advancing Dendy to I
?cond. With two men on bases, Weir
)nnected with the sphere and sent it I
>lling towards first. Harms left his
ag and chased the ball. Captain
Viles, going towards first. to receive t
1e hall from Ilarms, failed to manage
is feet and while he was plowing up
he earth l)endy scored and Chisolmn ad
anced on third. Chisolm scored on
ad well's bunt. (,oggans, next, sent -
little fly to Fuliner on third. h'ulner's
tachinery failed to work and for the I
iir I time in one short inning a Clem- I
)n man crossed the plate.
In the seventh Newberry pushed a
ian across the plate and broke her 1
hain of zeros also. Simpson took first
n an error, and Fulmer for Simpson
.ole second and third and scored on
lenson's connection and a fumble by
In the eighth three men wearing the
carlet and silver gray reached thef
oal and the sidL lines and the grand
Land went wild. Harms, Riser and o
abaniss were on bases. Fulmer hit
> short. Goggans threw home beaiu
fully, but the catcheri failed to hold
10 ball and the three mna on bases
oredl in ordler mientione'd.
Clemson followed with three imre
~ores, two men coiming home on a t wo
ase hit b)y Sitton.
In the ninth Newb)erry was able to
~ore only one man, Coleman chasing
time from third on IDendy 's wild p,itch.
Iemson declined to take her p)art of
ie ninth, and the pirettiest and closest
ame on the Newberry dliamonid t his
3ason ended with a score of six t.o five.I
