(6 innings, due to late start and darkness)

(PSOT: “The wind, which blew very hard against the bat, made it impossible for either side to show their batting, for which they are so famous, and few balls went much past the second base. A large number of spectators were assembled, and kept much better order than we ever saw at a ball match. … “Why don’t [the Stars] challenge the Young America, or some other club; for their first nine never played with any club but the Enterprise since they started, now two years ago.”)
