Games this week were played on Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7.
On Saturday at Rec Park, the Sacramento Brewers and San Francisco Wasps tied 7-7 in 12 innings, with Truck Eagan hitting his 6th home run. Sacramento got out to a 7-1 lead by the fifth inning, but Jay Hughes had two bad innings in which he gave up 6 runs before settling down again, giving up no runs or hits over the last three frames.
No game was play in Stockton, in favor of a Sunday double header.
At Stockton on Sunday, Stockton and Oakland split a doubleheader. Jack McCarthy went 4 for 5 to lead the Stockton club to an 11-7 win in the morning contest.
In the afternoon contest, Chief Borchers pitched a 0ne-hitter for Oakland, striking out 9 in a 3-1 win. George Harper took the loss, dropping his record to 9-17.
In the morning contest at Oakland, Tom Fitzpatrick of the Wasps faced Brick Devereaux, the Sacramento change pitcher. Devereaux made manager George Harper like a genius, pitching Gilt Edge to a 1-0 victory.
At San Francisco in the afternoon game, it was a back and forth game, with San Francisco coming out on top with 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to take a 10-9 slugfest. Phil Knell struggled the whole game, but took the win.
What the Future Hold, I Think, I hope
I have been rather remiss with this project, so I have decided that I will post “This Week in the California League” twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, until I complete the 1900 season. I also hope to continue through the 1901 and 1902 California League seasons.
