[Mutuals vs. Atlantics 8/12/1867] McMahon then hit a high one over right short’s head, which was falling nicely into [second baseman] Smith’s hands, and Bearman [at first] stopped at his base; but McMahon, thinking Charley [Smith] would drop it for a double play, called to Bearman to run for second, and as Smith held the ball and then passed it to Start before Bearman could get back, the result was a double play, and the closing of the innings for a blank score, a round of Atlantic applause greeting the good fielding.
