The Chicagos left at 7 last night for the Garden city. The game of yesterday was the only ray of comfort they took home with them. The story they will tell at home will be this. The Browns beat us accidentally one very bad game, the Reds almost did the same thing. Both clubs are about equal. We proved that it was accidental by our victory of 15 to 2 over the Reds. We can do the same to the Browns when next we meet them. The Chicago trick is to declare that the Reds whom they beat are the equals of the Browns whom they didn't beat. We hope they will draw comfort from this view for they certainly need it, but the Browns are very likely to spoil even this little theory next week.
