GREENER WAS INVINCIBLE
Danforths Gave the Famous Philadelphia Colored Giants a Severe Walloping at J. & G. Park Yesterday Afternoon.


 

Playing to their best form the Danforths administered an awful walloping to the Philadelphia colored Giants at J. & G. park yesterday afternoon. The Locals hit the ball when hits meant runs and fielded wonderfully, nothing getting them and the two errors scored against them amounted to nothing as one runner was caught at second and the other was left.

It is a hard matter to give credit to any particular player as everyone played fast baseball throughout the game and Greenslete pitched air-tight ball, the Giants being unable to do anything with is offerings.
