(New York Clipper: “The first match this season between these clubs, and the first time the Charter Oaks have played since 1860, ….  Both parties were short handed, but nevertheless had good nines on the field, they being pretty equally matched.  …  Before the last innings was played, a heavy shower of rain temporarily interrupted the proceedings, ….  In regard to the play shown in the match, we have to say that the display of batting and fielding on the part of the victors was about the best we have ever seen them make.  With great odds against them at the close of the fourth innings [4-10], they fought manfully up hill, and deserved the result of their plucky play.  The Stars were, if anything, a little too confident of success, and did not wake up to the stern realities of the case until too late to recover their lost ground.  An error of their play, too, was the keeping of Chilton in his position as pitcher when it was evident that he was not in condition to play, a sore finger rendering it painful for him to field the ball.”)
