(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “The weather was favorable, and a large crowd present, including a goodly number of ladies.  The game was called at 2 P.M., the choice of innings resulting in favor of the Eries, they taking the bat first.  The game was continued till the end of the 8th innings, when the score stood, Eries 22, Live Oaks 7, at which the umpire should have called the game, owing to the darkness.  Another innings was played in which the Live Oaks gained seven tallies.  …  The return match will be played in Rochester some day next week.”)
