June 15, 1871

Chicago's Levi Meyerle could be out for the rest of the season with a broken hand. Meyerle has been one of the leagues best players this season. He currently leads the league in batting average (.564), on-base percentage (.586), hits (31), and home runs (3). Meyerle's play has helped the Chicago White Stockings to top spot in the National League. Now many will be watching to see if Chicago can cope with the loss of their star player and continue on their winning ways.

Cincinnati starting pitcher Bobby Matthews is expected to be out of actions for 9 months with a partially torn ligament in his elbow. Cincinnati are currently in first place in the National League following two straight wins over Chicago. This year Matthews has chalked up 6 wins and 4 losses in 13 starts with a 3.29 ERA. Pitcher Bill Stearns will take over as Cincinnati's starter.
