The 1876 Brown Stockings: Another Victory Over Chicago

The St. Louis Club tallied [a] victory over the Chicago boys to-day, by a score of 3 to 2. The batting, in the teeth of a fierce southwest wind, was necessarily weak. Most of the fielding work was done around the bases, and it was well done by both clubs. It was one of the shortest and sharpest fielding games ever seen in [Chicago.] St. Louis has won eight out of the thirteen games thus far played between these two clubs.
