First College Baseball game in 1859. Or was it basketball?

It sounds like a basketball score. In the first college baseball game ever played on July 1, 1859, Amherst defeats their archrival, Williams College, 73-32 (66-32 by some reports). The game is played near the corner of North Street and Maplewood Avenue in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

I simply can’t imagine a baseball game with that many runs.
