(return match)

(1: Porter's Spirit of the Times): “This game lasted three hours, and attracted much attention.  The Portland Club extended a generous hospitality to the Boston boys, and their brief visit was one of mutual enjoyment and pleasure.”)

(2: Portland Advertiser): " Trial Match. -- We were deprived of the pleasure of attending the return match played yesterday between the Tri-Mountain Base Ball Club, of Boston, and the Portland Club.  The weather was excessively hot, not withstanding which, an immense concourse of ladies and gentlemen assembled to witness the sport.   We understand that on both sides there was some very fine playing.  It will be seen that the Tri-Mountain Club came out ahead.  It may not be amiss to say, that two or three of the best players of the Portland Club were necessarily absent, and substitutes had to be obtained.  When the result of the game was announced, the Portland boys game three hearty cheers to their victors, resolved when the final trial game came off, that the Tri-Mountains should cheer them."  (Box Score given; see below.}
