Vol. II. UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, APRlf 13, 1894. ' No. .21.
The annual series of two games
of base-ball between the Univer
sity of Vermont and U. N. C. was
played in Charlotte on 5th and
6th insts. The game of the 5th
was spoken of by the Charlotte
Observer as a " comedy of errors, ' '
and verily it was. The game was
Carolina's until the ninth inning,
when, by loose, playing, they sim
ply gave Vermont the game.
One was reminded of the .first
Lehigh game, when in the ninth
inning the score was twelve to
five in our favor. With two men
out Lehigh scored two runs by our
boys' loose playing. Then the
game was ours anyway, and it
seemed a matter of little conse
quence, but in this case the score
was six to five in our favor. Our
boys fell to pieces when they
couldn't afford it. Two of the
Vermont men had fanned out, and
then they made two runs and won
Stephens pitched a good game,
but was poorly supported. The
team played without any snap
whatever. The hitting was very
poor and the fielding worse. The
score by innings was as follows:
North Carolina took the baton
toss. Robertson led off with a
pop-up fly, which was taken in
by Woodward. Gregory, hit by
pitcher, gets his base. Lanier
cracks out a base-hit to right field,
which passes through Stephens,
and Gregory scores and before the
ball is secured Lanier reaches
second. Honeycutt, by a sacri
fice hit, advances Lanier to third.
On a wild pitch by Pond Lanier
scores. Henan is struck out and
retires the side.

Green Mountain boys and is given
his base on balls. Pond also gets
base on balls. On passed, ball

brow; but no, they were destined
to be pleasantly surprised. They
reached in the grab basket and
pulled a bundle of victory.
Hear it ye Gods, Daggett strikes
out; Stephens strikes out; and
Allen, he walks to the plate, and
goes to first on four balls. Pond
hits a beautiful high fly to Kenan,
who is wrapped in the arms of Mor
pheus; the ball strikes the earth
with a dull thud, is thrown wild,
and all is over for University North
Carolina. , Score University
