If Syracuse plays as good ball today
as the Michigan All-Fresh put up yes-
terday afternoon, and furthermore, if
the Varsity persists in the hitting
slump which it developed yesterday,
the winning streak of the Wolverine
nine is due for a sudden stop.
As .Coach Lundgren is still out of
town the pitcher for today's game is
uncertain. Quaintance or Ferguson
are likely to start, according to the ro-
tation plan used so far this year, leav-
ing Sisler and Baribeau for Saturday.
Last year Michigan took three of
the four games series from the Meth-
odists, losing the first one by a 5 to 1
score when Rogers broke his leg slid-
ing to second. The other scores were:
14 to 1, 15 to 1, and 10 to 8.
A young man by the name of Flynn
stepped unheralded' into the pitching
box for Lavans' squad yesterday, and
most effectively spiked the big guns
of the Maize and Blue battle front. At
the end of the six inning fray the Var-
sfty were on the small end of a 3 to 0
count. Michigan's scoring machine was
nothing but a pile of scrap iron after
Flynn got through with it; and Messrs.
Niemann and McConahy tore several
large holes in the defensive armour of
The Varsity bench yesterday was
aboui as cheerful as a last year's bird's
nest after a hard rain. The young-
sters added insult to Injury by pulling
off the same play which the Varsity
had been practicing all afternoon,
working the hit and run maneuver
with marked success.
The yearlings dutfielded the Varsity,
playing air-tight ball while the regu-
lars made three costly errors. Base
running was the only department in
which the youngsters appeared weak,
but they excelled the Varsity even
here, stealing the only two bases..
Baker singled in the second round,
with one down, but never got further
than first base, and not another Varsi-
ty runner appeared on the paths. Af-
ter the yearlings had accumulated
their neat lead, Captain Sisler took
the mound. He held the youngsters
safe, as did Soddy, who followed him;
but meanwhile Flynn mowed the vet-
erans down in one-two-three order.
Although the coaches raved and
swore, pleadings were in vain, and the
Varsity was compelled to accept a
dose of their own medicine; as shut-
out scores still remain the spring
fashion on Ferry field.
"Bill" Davidson, who started, was
hit hard in the first round. McConahy
and Niemann both contributed triples
to the festivities, but foolish baserun-
ning kept the total to one run.
In the second round the Varsity
staged a charity burlesque, McQueen,
Howard and Baer being the stars. A
sacrifice hit by Taylor and Johnson's
single, with the comedy of errors,
counted two runs.
In the third round both Niemann
and Lavans singled, but although the
freshmen runners reached third and
second with but one out, they were
unable to score, as Davidson struck
