Games were scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Stockton came in “from the country,” and on Saturday Jimmy Whalen was loaded for bear. He pitched a two-hit shutout, but had some trouble throughout the game as he gave up seven base-on-balls. The win extended his record to 8-1. Tom Fitzpatrick, who pitched for the Wasps, gave up 3 runs on 7 hits. Over at Sacramento, the home club beat Oakland 4-3 in a hard-fought game. Charley “Demon” Doyle game up three runs in the first two inning, but pitched a shutout the rest of the way. Opposing pitcher, Mike Steffani, gave up the winning run in the sixth inning, and then shutdown the Sacramento offense from then on.
On Sunday, over at Oakland, Stockton took its second straight game from San Francisco 3-2, with Ham Iburg losing another heartbreaker in the tenth inning. In the afternoon tilt, Tom Fitzpatrick pitched his second game of the weekend. This time he came up on top, 4 to 3. At Sacramento, Oakland scored 3 runs off Jay Hughes in the first inning, but Sacramento matched that, plus one, in the bottom half of the inning. After that rocky start, Hughes was unconscious, yielding only two hits— and no runs—the rest of the way. Doc Moskiman, pitching for the Dudes, gave up 7 runs and 9 hits. Big Bill Hanlon hits his fourth home run of the season.
