(NYT: “These famous Clubs met in battle array …, the knights-errant being the second nines; and after a series of manoeuvres of more than three hours’ duration, victory again perched on the Atlantics’ banner. The Putnams were short of their regular second nines—they say—but the substitutes did not show such muffy play as might have been expected; as it was, they played very fairly at the bat, and deserved more runs, but for the extraordinary fine fielding of the Atlantic’s second ‘first nine.’ … A large and respectable attendance of persons was present to witness the match, who took great interest in the game as it progressed.”)
