The Hartford Courant, Sept. 14, 17, 1860 reports a "match game ... on the park" Sept. 15 between the Independent and Mechanics BBCs. The latter was winning 39-9 when the Independent walked off the field, protesting an umpire's call.
"the park" is probably Bushnell Park.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know
Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
