The Millers' pennant hopes darken after being swept by the last-place Blues.

Athletic Park, Milwaukee

Eclipse Park, Louisville
Game 1
Louisville Colonels.....5
Toledo Mud Hens.....3
The Colonels pick up a game on the Brewers by capturing the first game in their pair with the Hens. A three-run fourth inning sets the table as Hippo Vaughn picks up the win.

Game 2
Toledo Mud Hens.....2
Louisville Colonels.....1
Louisville left fielder Frank Delahanty hit "a clean home run" but owing to the ground rules in place because of the overflow crowd, it was ruled a double and the the Hens salvage a split in the five-inning affair. The game ended early in order to allow the Toledo team to catch their train back home.

West Washington Street Park, Indianapolis
Indianapolis Indians .....5
Columbus Senators.....4
The Tribe holds on for the win despite a two-run rally by the Senators in the ninth.

That sums up the American Association scoreboard for September 12, one-hundred years ago today!
