Games scheduled on Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10. On Saturday in Stockton, Demon Doyle and Jimmy Whalen faced off in what turned out to be the best pitched game of the year. Both pitched 3-hitters, but Jimmy Whalen wound up on the winning side of a 1-0 game. Both pitchers struck out two men, but Doyle gave up four walks, and that lead to the only run scored, in the fifth inning. The two Bay Area clubs began a three-game set at Rec Park on Saturday. Fireman Tom Fitzpatrick and Ham Iburg combined for a 5-2 win, with future major league umpire George Hildebrand going 3 for 4 for the winners. On Sunday, Oakland swept the two games from the Wasps by scores of 6-5 and 9-6. At Oakland, Wasp field manager Ed Pabst hit a home run, but it wasn’t enough to pull the club over the line. In the second game at Rec, the Oakland Dudes put the game away in the first inning by scoring 6 runs, capped by a Doc Moskiman home run, and then coasted to the 9-6 win. Tom Fitzpatrick took the loss.
At Stockton, the Sacramentos got their second shutout of the weekend, this time by Jay Hughes, who gave up 3 hits while striking out 5 men. George Harper lost again for Stockton, this time by a 5-0 score.
