Field Elysian Fields
Home Team Eagle Base Ball Club of New York
Away Team Pastime Club of Brooklyn
Score 24 - 19
Innings 8

(8 innings)

(PSOT: “The match … was won in handsome style by the Eagles. The Pastimes opened the game in the most spirited manner, and for a few innings it appeared as if the Eagles would be defeated. But in their fourth and fifth innings the Eagles rallied in a handsome manner, and soon placed themselves in the advance. Both clubs played well—the Eagles rather better than they have played this season; while the Pastime Club, by their excellent trials with the Atlantic and Excelsiors a short time since, have established their reputation as an effective and expert playing club.

(NYC: “the Eagle club [had] the honor of winning the first ball from a senior club of Brooklyn that has been won this season by a New York club.”)
