August 13, 1897

The Plattsburgh Sentinel - Friday, August 13, 1897

--The Cuban Giants defeated Rutland Friday by a score of 10 to 1.

--The Plattsburghs were defeated at St. Albans Saturday in a thirteen-inning game by a score of 11 to 10. The game was won and lost in the first inning when the Vermonters score four runs on errors.

--The Burlingtons defeated Barre at the latter place on Friday by a score of 6 to 4. Lovett was in the box for the visitors and Austin for the home team. Eight Hits were secured off each. Burlington won on Dinsmore's home run in the third.

--The Plattsburghs and Cubans broke even in their two games this week, the Cubans winning Monday's game and the Plattsburghs taking Tuesday's.

--The Plattsburghs were victorious in the game Wednesday with the Burlingtons at Burlington. The score was 5 to 4.

--Plattsburghs vs. Burlington this afternoon at 3.15.

--Plattsburgh lost to Barre yesterday, 12 to 7, and St. Albans to Burlington, 8 to 5. These results produce queer effects in the percentage table. Barre, which was tied with Burlington for second, now ties Plattsburgh for first. Burlington does not fare as well, having played one more game than Plattsburgh and lost one more, with the games won the same.
