Louisville, KY
"Sox Clout the Ball. - Locals Make Twenty-Two Hits, Winning Easy Game From Nashville. - Louisville, Kentucky. - (Special) - Before one of the largest crowds that ever turned out to witness a semi-pro game in Louisville the White Sox administered a drubbing to the Nashville Giants at Eclipse Park Sunday, the final score being 23 to 4. The White Sox hammered the ball to all corners of the ball yard, making a total of twenty-two safeties, including seven doubles, three triples and as many home runs. The locals ran the bases at will, most of the bases being stolen while the pitcher held the ball. The feature of the game was the clouting of Dunbar and J. Taylor, this pair making nine hits between them. Dunbar secured two doubles, a triple, and a home run. Burch pitched a fine game for the White Sox, holding the visitors to one hit in eight innings. Manager Taylor took the mound in the final inning, and the visitors succeeded in making three runs. The Melwood Cubs defeated the Bon-Bons in the first game 11 to 5. The West Baden Sprudels, a teeam equally as good if not better than the White Sox, will play at Eclipse Park next Sunday."
