|Date||Tuesday, May 18, 1886|
[Louisville vs. Pittsburgh 5/17/1886] Miller, Whitney and Mountain were on the bases, the two former by hits and the latter by called balls. Glenn faced Ramsey and knocked the ball to Mack[2b], between first and second. He fielded the ball to White[ss], who put Mountain out. White aimed for a double play and threw the ball to Hecker [1b] at first, but Glenn was safely on his base before the ball arrived. The ball was at once thrown gain to Mack, who muffed it, enabling both Miller and Whitney to score. The Louisvilles claimed that Glenn had been fairly put out and walked to the home plate in a body. Glenn, during the hot discussion, rounded the bases and scored also. Umpire Pratt stuck to his decision and peremptorily ordered the visitors into the field again amid cheers.
