About 1,500 persons saw the Chicagos defeat the St. Louis American champions this afternoon [in Cincinnati]. The game was marked by miserable fielding, Anson being particularly weak. McCormick's pitching was the feature. Only two hits were made off his delivery, and one was a scratch. In the eighth inning he struck out Welch, Barkley and Comiskey. Dalrymple did some good batting.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, October 24, 1885
Again, very little ink spent on this series in the newspapers.
Chicago was up in games, 3-2-1, after the first game in Cincinnati and had a chance to win the series with a victory in game seven.
