Surviving carelessness on the base paths and in the field, the freshman baseball team came from behind twice to beat Boston Latin, 6 to 3, yesterday.
The good-hitting Latin nine scored quickly on a first-inning triple and a subsequent single, but then fell behind as the Yardlings scored lone runs in the second and fourth frames. In the second, Jim Dwinell hit to left, moved around on an infield error, and scored the tying run on Boone's base hit.
Fred Karp, having a good day at the plate against his former Latin teammates, belted a double to center in the fourth and went to third on the outfielder's error. He scored on first baseman Marc Kolden's drive down the right field line.
In an exasperating inning in which the Crimson committed most of its seven errors, Boston Latin rallied in the fifth to a 3-2 lead. The Yardlings went ahead with four tallies in the sixth, however, on four hits, a walk, an error, and asacrifice fly.
Because of sloppy base running, which cost a few runs, and some spotty fielding, the Yardlings' performance was only adequate, except in their hitting, which was led by the lower half of the order: Dwinell, Karp, Kolden, and Boone, the winning pitcher.
