Date Sunday, September 20, 1874

[Chicago vs. Boston 9/16/1874] In the fourth inning the Bostons received a run on called balls. The bases were full, and White was at the bat. Mr. McLean called two wides and two balls, and then, after a long succession of bad pitches, he gave White the base, which brought O’Rourke home. The umpire was sufficiently lenient, but not too much so; but the error was very expensive to the Chicagos, as the inning did not close until six runs had been scored by the Bostons, although two hands were out when Zettlein made the error.
