In the opening game of the season
Kentucky's heavy nrtillcry hammered
out eight hits for a total of eleven
runs off Pinson, Georgetown College
pitcher, nt Georgetown last Thursday afternoon,, but Jupiter Pluvius
put a hand in the fire in the last of
the fourth inning, forcing Umpire
Anderson to call the game with the
score 11 to 1 in favor of the Wildcats.
Probably had the game started on
time, instead of being called 20 minutes late the Blue and White would
have been able to have earned a victory. Pinson was found for everything he had to offer and the 'Cats
were hitting the ball all over the lot.
During the early part of the game
a storm came un and the mass of
dust on the field made fielding a
thing out of the question.
In the first inning Pinson started
off with fine style, whiffing Miller
and Riffe in the first inning, but his
streak of work was short lived, for
the Blue and White force pounded the
sphere here and there in the second
frame for three runs and repeated
in the third with five more. Arnold,
Kentucky's center gardner, connected
with one of Pinson's offerings in the
third for one of the longest hits ever
made on Hinton field, scoring Riffe
and Croft ahead of him.
Georgetown's only marker came in
the third inning and was the result!
of a clean double down the right field
foul line by Daniel and a single to
center by Harrod. Th"e entire Blue
and White team took a stand at the
plate in their half of the third, counting five runs on three hits, a walk
and two errors.
Georgetown is handicapped in this
particular sport by the lack of material, with only one letter man on
the team, this being the first year
of baseball for a number of their
players. Had the fray gone the full
nine innings, there is no doubt but
what it would have been an easy
victory for the Wildcats.
Pete Derrick pulled off the prize
play of the afternoon's program when
he went to the rear of the grandstand and caught Forwood's pop foul.
