Big Base Ball Match To-Day. - Chicago vs. St. Louis. The friends of our Union Club, confident that they can beat the Excelsiors, have arranged for another game to take place on the Base Ball Park grounds this afternoon. The Union nine will be stronger than last Thursday, and we predict for them a victory.
