Date Saturday, July 24, 1875

[St. Louis vs. Mutual 7/16/1875] On the Mutual side Booth led off with a two-base bounder to left field, and Nelson and Matthews did the same thing as far as the hit was concerned, though only single bases were scored, the latter's hit sending both Booth and Nelson home; and so busy were Matthews and his running substitute, Holdsworth, in watching the players run home that both forgot to run to first base on Matthews' hit; and Miller [catcher], seeing the error, sent the ball there after it had been fielded in. although Matthews afterwards tried to reach the base, he failed.
