This Week in the California League, May 14-May 20, 1900

Over the weekend, Sacramento took two out of three in San Francisco and Oakland. Jay Hughes, as expected, won the Saturday game at Rec Park in laugher, 10 to 1. On Sunday morning, Big Bill Hanlon tried his hand at tossing the horsehide, but gave up 9 or the 10 runs scored by San Francisco. Truck Eagan then came in and did a respectable job for the rest of the game.

Goodwater Grove in Stockton had the home team sweep the two-game set. On Saturday, Whalen and Mike Seffani went at it for twelve innings, locked in a 1-1 tie. In the thirteenth, Steffani gave up the game winner. Candy Beville of Oakland gave up only one hit over the first four innings, but then fell apart in the fifth, giving up four runs on five hits. Beville was then replaced by Steffani, but it was too late by then.

Over the two day, pitching predominated, but on Saturday the Dudes’ first baseman, Ed Hutchinson, got four singles in five times at bat to fatten his league leading batting average.
