For the second straight day a doubleheader was on the docket against the Mud Hens and Milwaukee Brewers but the second game was called because of darkness after six inning with neither team scoring.
Game 1
Toledo Mud Hens.....2
Milwaukee Brewers.....1
Milwaukee's Stoney McGlynn held the Hens to four hits in eight innings but yielded two runs in the fourth which proved the deciding factor in the loss, the Brewers getting nine scattered hits of Toledo's Karl Robinson.

Game 2
Called due to darkness after six innings.

At Eclipse Park in Louisville
St. Paul Saints.....3
Louisville Colonels.....1
St. Paul scored a pair in the third and were never behind after that. Louis Leroy the winner, Bill Hogg the loser as both pitchers went the distance. The Saints outhit the front-running Colonels, 11-4.

At Neil Park in Columbus
The Minneapolis Millers and Columbus Senators game was washed out by rain. The Millers gain a half-game on Louisville in the standings.
