Score 38 - 25

(home-and-home game) (2nd nines)

(NYT: “Although ranking as the second nines of their respective clubs, their style of playing is equal, if not superior, to the first nines of most clubs. The Manor House grounds contained a large assemblage of spectators, as they always do whenever the ‘Eckford boys’ rally for a friendly trial of base ball.”)
