TERRY PITCHES BIG WIN FOR BROOKLYN
More than 6,000 fans turned out for the game in the Ohio capital despite cold, windy weather. They were treated to a pitching duel between Terry and Hank Gastwright.
Columbus went up 1 to 0 in the very first inning when Terry walked Jim McTamany, who proceeded to steal both second and third base. He raced home on a sacrifice bunt by Ed Dailey.
Brooklyn came back to tie the score in the bottom of the inning when Darby O’Brien and Oyster Burns each walked. The two men pulled a double steal as Dave “Needles” Foutz fanned for the second out. George Pinkney’s single sent O’Brien home but Burns was thrown out at the plate.
In Brooklyn’s third inning, Hub Collins struck out but raced to first when the catcher missed the ball. Collins then stole second on the first pitch and scored on a single by Burns, to make the score 2 to 1.
The score stayed that way as the Bridesgroom bounced back from the previous day’s shocking defeat. Terry gave up only four hits as he won his 21st game of the season. Brooklyn got only three hits off of Gastright.
Brooklyn has only one game left in the season, and its 40-game winner Bob Caruthers is expected to be in the box today against Columbus. Meantime, St. Louis’s game at Cincinnati was again rained out.
