(8 innings)

(New York Clipper: “The entire game was not played, owing to an acknowledgment of defeat by the Athletics.  A little ill feeling was noticeable, throughout the game, and too strongly exhibited in the eighth innings.  But at the end of the game, the clubs cheered each other … the parties left the field, many of them arm in arm with each other—thus exhibiting that the ire displayed was absolutely temporary. … The Messrs. Vernon, Mudie, Davis, and Karcher, of the Athletic, it was conjectured, would, in some parts of the game, display some excellent playing, as they are formidable cricketers; but the points anticipated were not exhibited.  Indeed, their play did not come up to the standard.  It being their first play, however, they are most certainly excusable.”)
