The team left Kansas City for Lawrence Saturday even
ing. Rather, six of them did. The other six looked at play
things in the show windows too long and missed the train,
but arrived Sunday morning. Sunday was spent in attend
ing divine service and resting, principally the lattci. Mon
day the boys were shown through the university buildings
and over the town by the college boys, who are a fine set of
fellows. Our club indulged in two hours' practice and were
in good shape for the game. At 3 o'clock the clubs took
their places on the field with about 500 spectators in the
amphitheater, and play commenced. The game in detail as
given by the scorer is as folio. vs:
The first ball pitched was knocked on the ground to
Pace- who fielded it to Smith. Smith was run into by the
runner and dropped the ball. The second batter knocked'
the ball to right field for one base and the next batter went
out to Stroman by any easy fly. The ball was again knocked
sailing out to right field, scoring one run and advancing an
other man to thiui, while the batter was safe at fust and
stole second. Uarncs fanned the next man. The ball was
hit over Smith's head to right field and two more runs for
Kansas university was the result. A moment later the lourth
score was made as the result of a two bagger to right field.
Hamcs broke the monotony of base hits by fanning the next
batter. This inning had given Kansas university four runs
ol which three .were earned. For Nebraska, Stroman got
his base on balls. Holmes made first on a grounder forcing
Stroman out at second. Holmes stole second, but was
caught off the base a moment later. Hadlcy got first on
balls' add Hamcs flew out to center field. In the second inn
ing Kansas univcisily was retired by a grounder to Smith, a
fly to Chandler in left field and one of Meald's phenomenal
running fly catches. Dowling got first base on balls, Pace
fanned, Dowling stole second and third and Smith, being hit,
was given fiist base. Smith was foiccd out at second by
Ileald's grounder and Ilcald was retired in attempting to
steal second. In the third inning Kansas university made a
single and the runner stole second. Haines now warmed up
and fanned the next three men. For Nebiaska Chandler
fanned and Stroman and Holmes went out on easy grounders.
Fourth 'uning First man for Kansas univcisily fanned.
Hamcs gave the next man a base on balls and catching an
easy fly fiom the next batter slopped on first, making a
dqubjc play. Nebraska did nothing in their half. Fifth
inning Kansas university was retired by a fan-out, a
grounder to firsi and a throw to second by Holmes when n
runner attempted to steal thai base. Our boys now used the
stick with better results. Heald got a base on balls and
Chandler knoocked a grounder to third and beat it out Iq
first. Stroman sacrificed advancing Heald and ' Chandler,
who came in a moment later on a clean two-bagger by
Holmes. Hadlcy relieved the anxiety of Krinsis university
by fanning. Sixth inning The Kansas boys could not rcacli
first. Hamcs reached first on an error and stole second!
Dowling got first in the same manner as did Haines. Pace
made a well placed sacrifice scoring Damps and advancing
Dowling to third. Smith hit a grounder to the third base
man who tried to cut Dowling off at the home plate but'
fnilcd, and Smith reached first. Henld went out on n
grounder. Chandler made a hit but Stroman fanned, retir
ing the side. In the seventh and eighth neither side was
able to score. Nor were our boys in their half of the ninth.
Hut things wore now getting desperate, and 500 voices
screamed and screeched the K. S. U. yell "Rock chalk, Jay
Hawk, Kansas university." This may explain, to some ex
tent the cause of the errors in the ninth inning which allowed
the winning score to be made, which was done in this man
ner: Stroman fumbled n grounder. The next man .drove
the ball to Iclt field. Chandler threw the ball to Heald who
threw wild to first. The runner attempted to score but Smith
got the ball in time to throw him out. WP.h a man on third
the ball was knocked to Smith who fell down in attempting
to field it, allowing the winning run to, be made.
