THE KENTUCKY KERNEL UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY LEXINGTON. KY APRIL 24, 1919 VOL IX LITTLE END OF GIVEHJENHESSEAHS Wildcats Use Whitewash in Second Game, State Championship Looms Bigger and Bigger The Volunteers of the University of Tennessee were defeated twice last week at the hands of the fierce Wild cats of the University of Kentucky. On its trip into the State of Kentucky this season Tennessee lost four and tied one out of five games played. Georgeand Kentucky town, Transylvania, were victors, while Centre held the Southern team to a tie. The second game of the season for the Wildcats was played Friday afternoon on Stoll Field, with the Volunteers, resulting in a decisive victory for Kentucky, by a score of 10 to 3. The feature of the game was a home nih by Henry Thomas, catcher for the Wildcats, in the fifth inning. The ball sailed out into deep center field, and rolled out of Stoll Field thru a gap in the fence, making the longest hit, and the only home run of the season here. The game was not so exciting and close, but the students and other fans on the bleachers had a chance to give the Wildcats a close "once over" and see Just what material Kentucky has for a championship team. The Wildcat southpaw, "Doc" Las-lestruck out eight of the Tennes-seean- s in Friday's game, displaying his usual good headwork in his pitching. He easily outclassed the mighty Meek, who wrought Buch havoc with the Wildcat record last year. Thomas, beginning his second sea son behind the bat for the Wildcats, upheld his part of the reputation for the Kentucky battery His throws were accurate and well timed. Out of four times at the bat he secured three hits, one resulting in the home run. Three hits out of five times at the bat and an errorless afternoon of fielding was the record of Burnham, Kentucky's freshman thirdbaseman. Brown the other freshman infielder, is fulfilling all the fan's expectations of a crackerjack first baseman for Kentucky, and is doing his share with the stick. Calloway proved himself the best player with the Tennesseans, altho he did not add anything to his reputation as one of the best shortstops in the South. His work at the bat, however, was better than that of any of his mates. Ho made two clean hits, and scored one run. The score by innings was: Kentucky 330 0 1021 010 Tennessee 00000021 0 3 Strike-outs- : by Lasley, 8; by Meek, 1. Buses on Balls: By Lasloy, 1; by Meek, 0.
