Brooklyn Tip Tops
Buffalo BufFeds

If nothing else Mordecai Brown's effort against Buffalo opponent Harry Moran helps lift Brooklyn back to .500 and snaps their three game skid.
The Tip Tops score early, often, and late, in a commanding 10-4 victory at Buffalo's International Fair Association Grounds.  Catcher Yip Owens leads the charge going 3 for 3 with a double, home run, and three runs batted in.  Brown helps his own cause with a hit in four plate appearances and a run batted in.  George Anderson, Al Halt, and Steve Evans, each drive in a run apiece.  Making his seventh start for the Tip Tops, the 37-year old Mordecai Brown yields four earned runs on eight hits and three walks with five strikeouts over eight innings for his 14th victory of the season against 12 losses with a 3.61 ERA.  Manager Bradley's bunch improve to 75-75 with four games remaining on Brooklyn's schedule.  Their sole mission now is to avoid slipping into the sub-par second division.


Otherwise the inaugural Federal League season is drawing to its conclusion.  With their seventh straight victory the Indianapolis Hoosiers clinch the league's first ever pennant by a 1.5 game margin ahead of the Chicago ChiFeds.  The Hoosiers improve to a league best 87-65 with Wednesday's defeat of the St. Louis Terriers, while the ChiFeds sat idle after losing both games of a double-header against the Packers on Tuesday.  The season comes to an end on Thursday, but there's nothing more Chicago can do.
