....The Lone Stars made their first appearance on the ball field this season on Monday, in a match with the Stars of New York. The two clubs had met twice before this, and the Lone Stars were victors both time, by scores of 25 to 20 and 19 to 9. On Monday the home club were minus teh services of Day, Deming, H. Wilcox, Smith and Burns, and were obliged to call upon men who had not played for several seasons. The whole nine showed the want of practice. Notwithstanding these disadvantages, the Lone Stars managed to make it quite "warm" for their city friends, and at the close of the 9th inning teh score stood 21 each. This necessitated the playing of another inning. (By the way, this is the first ten-inning game ever played in Catskill, we believe.) The New Yorkers made one run and blanked their opponents in the 10th inning, thus winning a poorly-played but exciting game. The clubs will probably meet again during the season when the Catskill nine promise to make a better showing. We append the full score of Monday's game:
