Welcome to Harvard, fellas. I'm sure Jon Lehman and the gang at the Crimson will have some good stuff on this tomorrow, but Kurt Svoboda gets us going with some nice detail in the official report:
The pitchers, making their collegiate debuts, used different styles to get the result but both were effective against a Fighting Irish team that exploded offensively in a win over Duquesne earlier in the day.
Eadington, a lefty, started the game and scattered three hits before being removed in the fifth inning as his pitch count moved into the low 90’s. Eadington fell behind often as he walked six batters and hit another, but he consistently worked out of trouble including the first and third innings in which he left the bases loaded.
Perlman came on in the fifth and used a strong fastball with a variety of off-speed pitches to get ahead of the ND hitters. He scattered just two singles to pick up the victory.
