(TIE – drawn game)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “Both nines came to time confident and in good plight, though the friends of the Waverly thought that the weight and experience of the Excelsiors would tell heavily.  The latter have hitherto been unvanquished, having beaten the Potomac of Washington in a match last spring.  The former are somewhat novices, having never played a match until the one with the Excelsior; and is composed of young men who have not yet reached their majority.  Their play, however, would do great credit to a much older club.  … The Excelsiors are heavier batters; ….  On the whole the game was ably played, and hard won by the Waverly boys.  They have earned a reputation in base ball by their initial matches; and we sincerely hope that ’their shadow may never be less’.”
