"Slsterville Billy Campbell’s? gilt
edged work in the box won the first
game of the Dayton series for Wheel
ing yesterday. Inexcusable fielding
errors by Dayton also figured promi
nently in the result.
It was Wheeling’s first home game
for several weeks and if the weather
had been favorable a larger crowd
would have greeted the club. As it
was. the attendance was fair, and the
crowd was composed exclusively of
“rooters.” The "knocker” element
was conspicuous by its absence. The
game was well played from a Wheeling
standpoint and the "fans” who were
present yesterday may bo depended on
to spread the good news that the home
club Is now puttiug up a good, snappy
article of base ball.
It was Wheeling’s game from the
start. notwithstanding the fact that
the Dayton club is one of the strong
est in the League. For six innings
Campbell pitched phenomenal ball,
holding Dayton down to one hit, a sin
gle made bv Wetzel, the first player
to face him in the first inning. They
secured another run in the seventh
on two singles, and gave the home
club a scare in the last two innings.
Dayton struck a hitting streak In
the eighth inning and piled up six
runs, an excusable fumble by Deisel
helping the thing along. Wetzel was
first at bat and died at first. Hogan
and Flick singled and the former
scored on Reiman’s fly out to Miller.
Frank got a life on Deiscl’s fumble,
which should have retired the side
with one run. Then Greet! wald
singled. Kellner walked, and McShane
and Bates doubled, and six runs were
made before Miller got under a fly
from Wetzel’s bat.
Tn the ninth Hogan led off and
reached first on Shay’s error. Flick
singled and Reiman doubled to the
center field fence, scoring Hogan.
Only four runs were needed to tie.
and Dayton had men on second and
third with none out- Frank popped
up a little fly to Torreyson. who fielded
the ball quickly to Deisel. completing
a neat double play. Greenwald de
stroyed Dayton’s chances by surren
dering at first.
The work of the Wheeling club was
full of “ginger" and snap. Captain
Torrevson was in the game at all
stages and his men played ball to
w5n. Bradley. Miller and Messett did
some terrific slugging, while the field
ing honors fell to Shay ami Deisel,
v.ho went after eveything in sight.
Bates had eigtht. strike outs and an
equal number of bases on balls, besides
hitting one batsman. He was touched
ip for thirteen hits with a total of
seventeen bases. Wheeling did exc; 1
lent stick work, failing to bit safely
in but two inninss. The crowd was
favorably disposed toward the team
and gave generous applause when in
was deserved.
To-day Garvey will probably pitch
for Wheeling. He pitched five Innings
at Ft. Wayne Sunday, but his arm is
tn good condition. It will be ladies’
day and the fair sex will no doubt
be out in force, as they have not seen
a ball game for some time. Taylor
has been slightly indisposed, but will
be in the game to-day. He will play
short and Deisel will hold down the
second hag. Torrevson will lie on
first and either Donohue or Messett
will go behind the bat. The visitors
will have to play ball to win.

not raining enough to warrant discon
tinuing the game. The visitors refused

Brooklyn, N. Y., August 23.—Brook
lyn won two games from Pittsburg to
day. One was a postponed game from
the last trip. In the first game Haw
ley was easy, while Payne kept his
opponents’ hits well scattered.
The second game was a pitcher's
battle. Paddcn’s fall after catching
Jones’ fly in the third inning gave the
run that won the game. Umpire Hurst
was struck in the left temple with a
foul tip from Donovan’s bat in the
fifth inning if the second game. He
fell like a log and for a time it was
feared that ho was seriously injured.
He recovered after fifteen minutes.

game was slow’, sleepy and listless.
Stafford and Dolan played wretched
ball, and their errors gave the Bostons
all the runs they made. Louisville
made two hits off Nichols in the first
innning, .and only one more in the
ninth. A fine running catch by Clarke,
a line catch by Allen, and a foul catch
by Bergen were the only features. In
the second game Boston opened on
Clarke and pounded him unmercifully
throughout the game. They began the
first inning with two singles, a triple
and a home run, and this was a sam
ple of what happened all through the
game. Clarke’s magnificent fielding in.
left field was especially noticeable. He
made a fine catch close to the fence,
and another hot liner. Captain Duffy
was in his old time form and put two
balls over the fence in left field.
Tenney and Collins helped along the
score by heavy hitting. Score, first
