CLARK PACES BROOKLYN WIN
BALTIMORE—(Oct. 11, 1889) Catcher Bob Clark led Brooklyn to a 7 to 2 win over Baltimore yesterday behind the pitching of Adonis Terry. But St. Louis refused to fade from the tight American Association pennant race.
With the score tied 2 to 2, Brooklyn broke open yesterday’s game by plating four runs in the seventh inning. Clark singled, Terry reached on an error and both players scored on Darby O’Brien’s double. Dave “Needles” Foutz also doubled in two runs in the same inning.
Clark was the star of the day with four hits, four runs, two steals and seven put outs, plus one assist. Terry gave up only seven hits as he won his 20th game of the season.
The Bridegrooms were “full of ginger” as they headed to Columbus, Ohio, for the final three games of the season. Three wins there will seal the flag for Brooklyn. St. Louis remained only two games behind by beating Louisville 9 to 1 as Jack Stivetts raised his record to 12 wins and 6 losses.
