Date Saturday, June 25, 1870

[Cincinnati vs. Resolute of Elizabeth 6/16/1870] [Ritter at third, Beardsley at second, Campbell at first] ...three men were on the bases and a run was looked for, when the ball was thrown to 2d to cut off Campbell, seeing which Ritter ran for home, but Sweasy [second baseman] promptly returned the ball to Allison [catcher] without attempting to put Campbell out at 2d, and the result was Ritter was put out at home, and the ball being thrown to Waterman [third baseman] to cut off Beardsley a double play would have been the result, but Waterman failed to hold the ball, and Beardsley availed himself of the chance to run home, the scoring of the run being loudly cheered, as the majority seemed to expect that the Reds would serve the Resolutes as they had done the Unions.
