the Toledo interstate league team
came off yesterday and the 'varsity
was again victorious by the score of
8 to 3. The grounds were in much
better condition and a much better
article of ball resulted. All the men
were given a show and the contest
for several positions was exceedingly
close. The advantage of indoor
batting practice was very evident,
the 'varsity making 11 hits. Mc-
Ginnis and Matteson batted in their
old time form and McGinnis' three
bagger was a feature of the game.
''Kig" Ler showed Toledo that he
was still in the game even if his arm
was a bit sore and held them to two
hits in four innings. MGarge suc-
ceeded Lehr and pitched a good
article of ball. The score:
