Fhiladelphta Pre. Phil. Reccius ought to b complimented on bis tine fielding in the three championship games which have been played. He leads the club in that respect, and has made wore runs than any other player in the team. Phil take desperate chances, and therefor makes an occasional error, but he cut off many a bas bit. H i fleet of foot, sure stop, fine thrower, and besidee covers a great space of territory. At tbe bat be is a good man. He ha found his plac, and should b kept in the field. 1m the fifth inning yesterday Mullane made a fool of himseif. Mack came to tbe bat, and tb great pitcher turnd to tbe audienc and said: "I'll bet that you don't make a single bit this inniug. " A moment later be threw the ball, and Mack banged it past center tieid. Werrick and Reccius followed with terrifio drives to th iufielders, and botn reached first bas in safety. Ramsey then lovingly took up tbe bat, cast a pitiful glance at tbe egotistical pitcher, and a moment later drove th ball clear to tb fenc for two base The crowd rightfully poked fun at Muifaae. Two runs were scored this inning.
