In the third inning, Bobby Wallace of St. Louis fielded a grounder and threw poorly to the plate. Brooklyn runner Duke Farrell slid under Wilbert Robinson’s tag and umpire John Gaffney called him safe. Robinson threw the ball at the arbiter, rushed up and struck him on the chest with his fist. Gaffney swung his mask at Robinson, just grazing his nose. Gaffney then ejected Robinson, who refused to leave the field. Manager McGraw backed him up. Gaffney forfeited the game after waiting the customary time. The spectators received their money back in 1900.

The 21 year-old first baseman, who will finish the year with 130 RBIs, surpasses the mark established in 1930 by Wally Berger, who played for the Boston Braves.
