The St. Louis Unions and Chicago Unions played the first game of the second home series yesterday afternoon at Union Park. The attendance was about 2,000. Daly and Gross were the visitors' battery and Taylor and Baker were in the points for the home team. Daly struck out thirteen men and Taylor six. Dunlap led off with home run, sending the ball over the fence at left center, making the longest hit that has been made on the grounds. The home nine played an errorless game, and the visitors, who made but seven scattering hits, were blanked. It was a quick game. On one occasion, when Umpire Sullivan called a strike on Dunlap, the latter turned and scowled at him. Sullivan very quickly ordered him to look the other way or he would fine him $25. A few more such umpires as Sullivan would be a benefit to the Union Association, and particularly to the home club.
