In a heated double header between two of the better teams on the Eastern Seaboard, Essex Base Ball Club & The Atlantic Base Ball Club split a pair of games. Essex held off a fierce 9th inning charge to preserve the game 1 victory 8-7, while the Atlantics flipped the table in game 2 to win 5-4. Both games saw an uncountable number of fantastic defensive plays, and both teams had nothing left to give by the time hats were raised to salute the crowd. EBBA would like to thank the ABBC for traveling North to MA; we look forward to playing two more soon. We can only hope to have games this good for the rest of the season.
