The disputed score of the Cleveland-Chicago game on July 10 is officially decided by N. E. Young to be 2 to 0, instead of 1 to 0, as claimed by the Chicagos. Secretary Young says: “The game could not end or be called until the play which won it was completed. Had there been three men on bases when Dunlap made his home-run the runs would all have to count and be recorded as the score of the game. Had the game ended as soon as Glasscock crossed the home-plate, you can see what a gross injustice it would have been to Dunlap, as he would have been deprived of the record to which he was justly entitled.
