Gaines Pitches.
Tho basphr.lj to.ams of the Univer
sities of Nebraska and Minnesota
crossed bats on the campus last Sat
urday. When the final score was
added up the northern men had won
by 5 to 3. Tho sun was hot, but was
concealed behind a cloud most of tho
time. Tho crowd was the largest of
the season and showed much spirit.
i'ho Minnesota men played good
ball and at critical times played a
laultless game. Freeman, a south
paw man, pitched a good game and
was well supported by his team.
For Nebraska, Captain Rhodes was
tho bright and particular star. His
work at short was of the grand stand
order, and brought forth continued ap
plause. No matter how hot the
grounder was Dusty would run up on
it and put tho ball to first with ac
curacy and lightning speed. Gaines
pitched good ball and should have
won tho game. The fielding of
Reoder and Bell was good, the former
making several difficult catches after
long runs. Raymond led in tho bat-
""Bu't U all happened this' way: Min
nesota was first to bat. Plyma't hit
safe, but was crowded out at second
by a hit of Freeman to Gaines. Free
man then went to second on a bad
pitch and to third by a hit by Cavn
eron. But it was of no use. Metcalf
went out to Bell and Allan was caught
at first. Nebraska went out in one,
two, three order.
In tho second, Minnesota piled up
two nice iat tallios. Leach hit safe
to right and Hurley got a free pass
Thing looked bad for Nebraska. So
lem fanned, out Varco hit tho first
ball down. Townsend missed it and
let in two scores, and that was all.
Plymut was caught at first, and
Gaines fanned Freeman, Just to show
he could.
For Nobraska, Townsend came off
tho bench with blood in tho northwest
corner of his south optic, and rub
bing his front feet in the dust,
knocked the ball over tho center
field, It was a good base hit, but
Townsend tried to stretch it into a
homer and was caught at the plate.
Rhodes fanned, and DoPutron wont
out on u foul. Tho scoro waH still
two to nothing in favor of tho north
erners, For Minnesota in tho third inning,
Cameron sent u fiy to lolt. Reeder
took aftftr it ilko a small boy after
custard pie and got it all, making a
pretty catch after a long run, Mot
calf hit between center field and right
but Allan and Leach -were caught at
first. For Nobraska, Raymond failed
to beat the bull to the initial bag, so
.Reoder, to mako suro, took tho private
car "Four balls." Ho was pushed ottt
nt second, howovor, by Doanc's hit.
Hood was caught out on a fly.
Minnesota tried hard to ncoro in
both tho fourth and fitth, getting a
man to third in tho latter, but tho Ne
braska boys hold them down, Tln
Nobraskans, in turn, could not connect

Then came the sixth, and Nebrnsl.a

For the Cowboys, it started thusty:

other to Plymat, who sent the ball tc

Tho bony nrst bnsoman for tho win-
nesotans groped around for the initial
bag, but Bell beat him to it. Thus,
what should have been a double failed.
Hood, while the Gophers were iccov
oring from the shock, stole third.
There voro two men on bases and no
outs. Tho fans went wild, and called
upon tho Cowboys to keep up the good
Gaines wont up to bat and acted
very much as though ho wanted to do
something. When Freeman sent tho
ball over the plate, Boll shot out for
second. The Gopher catcher did as
expected and thiew the ball to sec
ond. Bell slid into him and was safe.
Willie Solem was recovering, Hood
went home. The crowd jumped to their
feet as one man. While the Minneso
tans were figuring out how it all hap
pened Bell stole third. The smoke
cleared away. Freeman wiped a tear
trom his eye, and prepared to starjr

Bell, however, al
through struck speechless by the
i drawing room grace of Minnesota's so-
ciety pitcher, started home before tho
ball left that individual's hand. Ho

and Rhodes and DoPutron hit safe.
Raymond mado three safe hits, that

by a two base hit and a single. Tha
Nobraskans wont out in apple pie
