Game 1: Teddys 4, X-Giants 2
WP: Brown (1-0)
LP: Jones (0-1)
Save: Bender (1)

Game 2: X-Giants 3, Teddys 2
WP: Mendez (1-0)
LP: Alexander (1-1)
Save: Smith (1)
HR: Monroe (1)


Jose Mendez and Hilton Smith combined to limit the Teddys to six hits in the finale as the X-Giants got their first victory of the season. Bill Monroe hit a two-run homer off Pete Alexander in the fifth inning.

In the first game, the Teddys used a pair of perfectly executed hit-and-runs to set up their scores — one by Eddie Collins in a three-run first, the other by Honus Wagner in the third. Three-Finger Brown allowed just four hits in eight innings, and Chief Bender debuted with a hitless ninth.
