The 1884 Maroons: The Penultimate Game

The St. Louis Unions and the Bostons played the last game but one of their championship series yesterday afternoon, in the presence of a good-sized gathering.  Before they commenced play each team had won seven games of the series of sixteen.  When they had finished St. Louis had won eight to the Bostons seven, so that to-day the Bostons will have to win to tie, while if the St. Louis should win the series will be theirs.
