Keokuk, May 13. - The weather to-day was very fine and the playing in keeping with it. The attendance was melancholy, about one hundred and fifty persons being all that turned out to witness one of the best played games of the season. The Browns again won the toss and sent their opponents to the bat, both nines being the same as yesterday. Mutual blanks were exchanged in the first two innings, the fielding being of the sharpest kind. One run was scored by the Westerns in the third innings by an error of Hague and a base hit of Jones. Another, and their all, was earned in the sixth by good hits of Hollihan and Goldsmith. The Browns scored two in the fifth by a two-base hit of Dehlman, and a single by Pike. Pearce scored one on the latter's hit, after making first on Joe Miller's error. The playing of the Westerns was first-class, Golden's pitching being a great improvement on yesterday's, and Barnie having but one passed ball. It was a hard-fought and well-earned victory for the Browns, who supported Fleet splendidly.
