"A match game for the championship of Tennessee was played yesterday afternoon at the Fair Grounds between the Memphis Mutuals and the Morgan Base Ball Club of Nashville, commencing at 3 o’clock. A considerable crowd of ladies and gentleman were present to witness the struggle. We desired to give our readers a full amount of this interesting match, but cannot do so for lack of knowledge of this highly important branch of the fine arts. Thus situated we shall have to be content with a brief announcement of the result. In the nine innings played, the Mutuals scored 28 to the Morgans 24, thus easily winding [sic] the championship of the State. The Morgans have been sometime out of practice, but hardly expected to be so egregiously beaten. The Memphis boys were as active as cats, and developed more accuracy than the occasion required. They wore their new won honors with an entirely becoming grace."
