GAROUNA TAKES TWO OUT OF
THREE GAMES FROM VIRGINIA

A thousand skyblue pennants,
symbolizing ''loyalty, to the Uni
versity of North Carolina, flut
lercd in riotous disorder before a
brisk April breeze yesterday af
ternoon. As many human mast
arms waved frantically. Four
thousand voices in a mighty
shout bombarded and scattered
the very clouds above, also re
splendent in their colors of blue
and light gray. And well might
the loyal Tar Heels have felt
joyous. It was the fourth inning",
with Virginia at the bat. Neff,
third baseman, had fanned in
pitiful helplessness. Carter,
captain of his nine, struck twice,
hit sheepishly at a wide out,
which, after protest, was called a
ball. Another ball came, and
another, Carter, by the rules of
baseball, going to first on what
is known as four bad ones.
Fitchett followed his captain and
struck out like a man. it was
then that Carolinians stood up
and cheered in "the - greatest dis
play of enthusiasm of the tratne,
McGuire came up for the third
out the sharp crack of bat and
ball sounded even above the
shouts of the then joy-mad Caro
linians. The ball which McGuire
hit sailed low' and swiftly toward
third base. A toot above Ed
wards' reach it passed over the
bag-. The hit was a clean two
bagger and Carter, who had
stolen second, romped home. Al
most before it was realized that
Virginia had scored on Lee there
was another crack. Landes was
at bat, and his swat went for a
single to right. Hanes ' throw to
the plate was bad and McGuire
crossed safely. It was the only
two runs made by the Old Do-
minion boys, but Carolina never
made but one.
A Great Baseball Battle.
The fourth inning, though the
winning one, was by no means
the only one. For eight and one
half rounds the two teams battled
valiantly, the "pitchers vieing in
the very splendor of their perfor
mances. Summarized from a
fielding and pitching standpoint,
it was perhaps the greatest battle
the two old rivals have, ever
waged on Guilford county soil.
Not a Tar Heel was guilty of a
misplay, "The Virginians erred
and twice their fielders moved
slowly. From a run-making
standpoint there was little differ
ence in the two teams, for, with
koth, fate rather than hitting
prowess caused the scores. In
pitching Lee w.is the equal of
Rixey in all save the. fourth in
ning. In that a temporary letup
proved fatal. Kixey was com
plete master of the reputed Tar
Heel sluggers. Only three men
on the team touched him, they
being Winstead, Leak and Bailey.
The leadofj butters, Hancs, VA
wards, Irbj and Swink, came up
four times and as frequently went
down like chaff before a gale.
Carolina had the "ins", and
Hanes trotted to the plate. FTe
struck once and then hit an easy
grounder to Neff. Edwards fol
lowed and struck fruitlessly three
times. For four innings it was
the same thing with the Carolina
boys, Leakbreaking the monotony
of going up and coming back in
the fifth inning with the first
single of the game. Winstead
hit a fly back of second, which
fell safe, but in a general belief
that it would be caught Leak had
held tight to first. Lile fielded the
ball and forced Leak at second
robbing Winstead of a clean hit
bv forcing- the runner. Fate
even seemed against Carolina,
which, with Kixey. was more
than Lee and Page could contest,
so both struck out in quick order
Virginia Starts Viciously.
With Virginia it had been dif
ferent. In the first inning Lee
found himself in a deep hole, but
by masterly pitching, worked out
of the hole and into thousands of
hearts. Finlay opened the batting
for Virginia, and, like Hanes, hit
to third. Edwards was as good
as Neff, and bagged his man at
first. Lile got in front of a
drifting outcurve, and walked to
first. Douglas hit a low drive
over shoit for two bas, putting
Lile on third and himself on sec
ond, with but one man gone. Neff
came up and Lee began to pitch
in real form. He struck out Neff
and faced Carter with the same
disdain. The Virginia captain
was easy for the Carolina captain,
going out on strikes. It was
this exhibition of pitching crafti-
ncss and prowess wnicn gdvc
Carolinians renewed hope a hope
which was not dashed until three
more innings had been played.
In the second Virginia went
out in order and also in the third.
The fourth came and with it Lee
seemed stronger than ever. Neff
struck out and Carter struck
twice and then apparently swung

In fielding the Tar Hijels had a
shade on the Virginians though
the work of neither was hardly
such as could be described as
brilliant. In fact, few o iportuni
ties for sensational w rk were
offered the l elders. In the one
instance which the CI apel Hill
team had Winstead seized the
opportunity and the bill hand-
somely. It was in the third in
ning and Finley had hit a hard
line drive toward short, j With a
running, jumping, ore-handed
stab, Winstead nailed the ball.
Easily it was the prettiest bit of
fielding of the game. But the

boys, not an error being credited
