The 1884 Maroons: Just Another Win

The St. Louis and Kansas City Unions closed their championship series in St. Louis yesterday afternoon.  Voss and Baldwin formed the battery for the Kansas Citys, and a first-class team they proved to be.  Voss' pitching was very effective up to the eighth inning.  At that point he was hit quite hard, the home team earning 2 of the 3 runs they then scored.  The best feature of the game was the fine outfielding of Black, who made three very pretty catches.
