This contest was the opening baseball game of the season, and was witnessed by a large number of fans. At no one's hand can blame for defeat of Kentucky by Michigan be placed, nor, indeed, is there any necessity for any radical criticism of any member of the squad or anyone connected with the team. Kentucky was simply outclassed by Michigan, the latter winning the game purely on merit. Nor is it surprising that the winners of the Western Conference championship, coached by one as experienced as the former Chicago Cub Coach, Lundgren, should have won the game. The fact is that the Michigan game was the first of the season; was arranged differthat the line-uently from the usual order, and that weather conditions had not permitted regular outdoor practice for a period just proceeding the contest. That the contest was raggedly played is not to be denied, but it is a fact that Michigan was faulty in this respect as well as Kentucky, and errors of both teams should be attributed to conditions before mentioned. With the exception of the seventh inning the race for points was neck and neck. When Michigan slipped a man around the diamond in the third inning, Kentucky, not to be outdone, did likewise, thus tying the score. Fierce battling in the fourth inning brought no results to either side, but in the fifth and sixth innings, Michigan succeeded in adding a score each period, only to have their Joy at gaining the lead cut short, for both Heber and Zerfoss slipped over the plate during the last half of the sixth, and the old game was tied again. The score stood 3 to 3. Until the seventh inning Slomer and Parks were the contending mounds-meto The former is Lexington fans, his record showing him to be a pitcher of ability and a Wildcat with barrels of fight in him. The latter is the much touted twlrler who led the Mlchiganders to the Conference championship last year and was rewarded by being elected captain of the 1920 squad. Michigan's coach saw fit in the sixth inning to relieve Parks and send in Rozlcka. Coach Gill also thought it best not to work Slomer too much in this first game of the season, so he sent in Grubbs, Varsity pitcher of former years. Things did not go well for Kentucky seventh inning. Mlchin the iganders were wicked with the stick and Kentuckians were unusually slow in fielding the ball. Several bad plays were made, but if the players had been able to play only errorless ball they would not be in a class with collegiate players, so the fans excused p well-know- n d t TRACK FLOWERS FOR ALL OCCASIONS them for their errors with tho hope that further practlco and better conditions would obliterate BUch playing In the future. The Kernel will not attempt at this enrly period in tho season to offer suggestions on the comparative abilities of tho members of tho squad, nor to suggest to Coach Gill whero he should place the various players, nor take the exhibition of playing in Saturday's game as the best that the team can do, but it firmly believes that Coach Gill's team that lost only three games last season can go through the present schedule with as good a record, if not a better one, regardless of the fact that tho 1920 schedule is stiffer than usual. And losing to the Western Conference champions by a score of 8 to 3 is a satisfactory beginning to say the most.
