George Harper won his second game, and Ham Iburg lost his third.

Oakland and Sacramento opened up at Rec Park in San Francisco, winning on the backs of Truck Eagan who went 4 for 5 and Hen Stultz, batting eighth in the line up, who collected a double and triple in four trip to the plate. Charley “Demon” Doyle pitched a fine game, or as Charles Dryden put in the Examiner: “Doyle, sometimes the Demon, yesterday was a ‘wiz,’” giving uo 3 runs on five hits. On Sunday, Sacramento won 4-3 over at Golden Gate (aka Freeman’s) Park in Oakland. In the afternoon game at Rec, Jay Hughes prevailed for the Senators 5-3, and picking up his third win of the season against only one defeat.
