American League

Philadelphia @ New York
New York has a case of the jitters playing their first home game. 4 errors in the first 2 innings let in too many easy runs. Bender stops a late rally.

Washington @ Boston

Oscar Graham's debut is a disappointment.  He hits the leadoff man then gives up 4 hits and 4 runs in his one inning on the hill.

New York @ Brooklyn
With a record crowd of 18,000 on hand, Brooklyn comes up lame and drops to 0-3. The errors weren't as fatal as the poor hitting was after the 1st.

St. Louis @ Cincinnati

St. Louis wins their first game of the campaign. Cincinnati hits Karger nearly at will, but couldn't produce even one clutch hit.
