The Tigern played ii great uphill game
In the fae.! of the heal opposition they
have encountered this season In coir
tanks. Up to the seventh ln-1
jiinK. with the .-rore standing :i to o
In favor of Virginia, they had secured
but three hits oil of itixoy, Virginia's
clover southpaw, un<] had made no
runs. In that session Captain Sturrott,
who had twiee previously fanned,
laced a home run drive to deep light1
Held. ]n the eighth Parker tripled
to left Held, and registered oh a passed
bull.
Pcndleton opened (h- ninth by strik?
ing out; but Princeton was yet game.
Worthlngtdti drew a pass. Sain Whit
singled to left field, and Sterten
placed n drop fly back of shortstop,

struck Just inside the foul line In rlghl I
Held, clearing the bases, the big loft 1

nings against St. John's.
Virginia oulflelde?] and oil thli Ihe
Tigers. There was not tlie semblance
of an error. Rile made a spectacular
running catch of Lear's long dy le
tweon rlghl and centre In the sixth,
and in the next session Douglass won
applause when he stabbed Heed's liner,
which looked to be out or' his reach.
Flnlay and Douglass led with the stick,
each getting three hits:. The former
put up n clever game at backstop, lu
the first Inning he easily caught Poh
dleton, who tried to pilfer third. The
fleet-footed Tig. i slior.lstop stole a
1'n.he In the fourth, however, after
I boating oui a hunt.
