"Gophers Defeat Werdens - Take the Whole Series, and Outclass Their Opponents. - The Twin City Gophers, owned by Glover Shull and managed by Bobby Marshall, easily defeated Perry Werden's All Stars at Nicollet Park on July 1, 2 and 3. the batting of Binga, McDougall and Armstrong, in the first game was the feature. Lefty Pangburn showed wonderful speed and perfect delivery. The work of Marshall on first base, Bunch Davis on 2nd and Brown at 3rd was very good. Selden, the short stop, is a rare player, and a great support to the infield. Bert James, Binga, and Armstrong are in the outfield with the goods. Johnson and Davis are two of the best pitchers on the team, Davis is the iron man. Having pitched nearly all the earlier games this season. But Johnny loves the game, and has the confidence of the other players who support him better than they do the other twirlers. Armstrong did some great catching, and his batting eye is very keen and his whip strong. That throw to second is unbeatable. McDougal is a wonderful batter. They can't beat him. The sensational catch of Binga, near the right field fence was grand, and the double made of it was the candy. Brown also stopped a fast drive from Perry's bat, and ended the series. The Gophers are right. Dude Lyttle, Scarlett, and Hardaman are members of the tea. All are good reserve players. Mr. Henry C. Jones of St. Paul is the business manager. They expect some good games later with the celebrated Keystones. Johnny Davis, the star pitcher of the Gophers returned home on Thursday. He is suffering greatly with sore eyes."

"The Gophers are a good strong team. The Star is informed that the Keystones are playing real professional ball. They showed up to form at Alexandria. Why can't the Keystones and Gophers get together and play a series? There is more spirit atraction and real money for the management in the games of these friendly rivals than in the World's Championship (among the locals at 60 and 40) Who refuses to sign? The Keystones will play anybody. So, it is either Bobby or the Kidd."
