Terriers Prevail, 6-4, Over Chicago
The Boston Terriers withstood an impressive performance by Chicago center fielder Jefferson Salmon to defeat the Hawks, 6-4, at Atlantic Avenue Grounds. Salmon went 3 for 5 with a triple and 2 singles, while scoring 2 times. Boston pitcher Clint Schultz got the win, upping his record to 12-11. Greg Vanderveer got the loss. Woody Cooksey converted his 20th save in 22 tries.

Boston third baseman Ed Potthast contributed a timely at-bat in the bottom of the first. With two down, he hit a cutter into center field for a 2-run single. It was his 70th hit of the season and put the Terriers ahead, 2-0.

"You can't get too high when things go well, or too low when things go bad. Right now, I'm just happy we got the win," Potthast told the Boston Daily News.

Boston improves to 88-71 with the win. They lead their division by 4 games.
