George Washington Bradley - he of the broad and expansive grin - has a host of people in Cincinnati who do not love him. Probably no man in the profession is so thoroughly disliked here as he. It does not follow, however, that he deserves it, for in many ways George is a good sort of fellow. He plays his side with all his soul every time, and never ceases to work to win, all of which should go to any ball-player's credit. Nevertheless three fourths of every ball crowd which gathers on the Cincinnati grounds when Bradley plays there are sure to greet every instance of his discomfiture with a yell of unutterable delight. The crowd of six teen hundred spectators greeted his terrific thumping with volume after volume of glorified yells and shouts.

It was Bradley's day take the Cincinnati medicine. Jumping Jack Jones took it Saturday, and Bobby Mathews Tuesday. It was thought Jones would try it again, but Bradley was called in, and oh ! how he suffered. Will White was quite recovered from his temporary weakness of the day previous and again had the visitors at his will. The team backed him up magnificently, phenomenal plays being made by McPhee, Snyder, Fulmer and Reilly.

The boys were all handy with the stick, too. Especially did Reilly and Carpenter thump it to the ball. Long John's home run hit to extreme center was the prettiest hit ever seen on that field. A phenomenal jumping catch by McPhee of a line ball was greeted with applause that lasted several minutes. Charley Fulmer went into the game with an arm so sore he could not let it out straight without great paid, and yet he played a game that was superb. He received hearty applause from the crowd.

In only three innings did the visitors make hits. In the third Blakiston got a base on balls, and was driven home before Bradley's long home-run hit to right center. Stricker made a hit in the sixth, but a fine line catch and throw by McPhee doubled "Cub" up in a double play. Bradley made his second hit in the eighth, went to third on Snyder's overthrow, and came home on a passed ball.

Reilly's three baser and a wild pitch gave Cincinnati a run in the first. Singles by Fulmer and White, and Carpenter's home-run hit to left, in the third, gave three earned runs. Carpenter's single and Reilly's home run in the seventh earned two more.

But the fun culminated in the ninth with six earned runs. White started it with a liner to right, Carpenter put one in straight to center, Reilly sent White home and Hick to third with a two-bagger. Jones drove both in with a three-bagger to left. Sommer was fielded out, and Corkhill put in a two-bagger to right, Jones scoring. Snyder and McPhee followed with singles, which, with Snyder's stolen base, gave the sixth earned run. Fulmer flied out, and White, the second time at bat, retired the side. McPhee was unfortunate in being left on bases three times. Sommer hit hard three times right at Corey. In this he, two, was unfortunate. Kelly's umpiring, as usual, was very fine.
