Bill Reidy, the loquacious and versatile
manager of the Oakland bunch, again
shoved Jimmy Wiggs Into the breach in
the pick of time, thereby saving yester
day's game after Portland's errors bad
allowed the visitors to score four runs,
while the best the McCredle squad could
do was to tallv twice. The game makes
an even break In the series.
When W'lggs was pulled from behind
the clubhouse to go to the . rescue of
"Lefty" Tonneson. who was getting
bumped in lively fashion in the ninth,
Portland had runners on second and
third by virtue of Breen's single and a
two-ply smash by Gus Fisher. Poor
coaching and poor base running lost us
one run in this Inning, for Breen should
have scored on either of two occasions.
On Fisher'a hit he could easily have gone
the route, but slackened up at third, and
again, when McCredle. batting for Car
son, hit to McKune, Breen ran half way
and then stopped. When he finally dashed
home the throw was sure and the play
' close, but he was out.
This sample of base running, however,
may not have cost the game at that,
though it surely would have helped some.
The home team also played a fiercely
rawed game in the field. So much so that
the big crowd forgot all about the two
fast double plays, for the errors were so
frequent and so palpable that the earlier
good work wa marred. Carson pitched a
fairly steady game, though he was hit
hard In the eighth when Oakland scored
three runs. Still, even the hits would not
have counted for much, had not Graney.
Ryan. Speas and Breen contributed bad
plays, while Fisher migiit have used his
thinking apparatus a little quicker and
allowed Duffy Lewis' bunt to roll foul as
it surely would have had he not fielded It.
It was this bunt which started Carson's
finish for Happy Bill Hogan hit to right
and Graney fumbled the ball long enough
to allow Lewis to take third. Cameron
"Texaned" over second, and Lewis scored.
Breen erred on McKune's chance and
Speas dropped Quigley's fly. which al
lowed two more runs to score, giving
Oakland a total of four to the brace se
cured by Portland in the fifth.
Havlng played about as badly as they
rossibly could yesterday, it is to be hoped
that the Portland team has gotten all its
erratic w,ork out of Its system In order
that It may play San Francisco In much
better fashion. Seven errors of commis
sion and a large bunch of omission were
noticeable in the home clubs behavior
yesterday. And one of the finest crowds
of the season saw the contest. On that
account the Seals will reign favorite until
Portland shows more class.
Umpire McCarthy left last night for San
Francisco, and Jimmy Toman is coming
north with Danny Long, his boss, and
the Sea Is. Toman is to work with Van
Haltren. who remains over for the next
two weeks. ,
Jack Gleason, fat and cheerful as evor.

ball moguls, occupied a high seat in the

that he was unable to remain over for
the coming series.

SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 1. (Special.)
In the crippled condition that has
caused a patched-up team, all the week,
and yet with six of the seven games won
from Sacramento, the Seals left San
Francisco tonight for Portland to take
part In what is oonsidetwd one of the
moat important series of the season, so
far as the pennant race is concerned. In
order to have bis star pitchers fresb for
the Beavers, Danny Long took some
chances on Sunday by pitching Melkle
in the forenoon and working Ed Griffin
for the third time In a week in the after
noon. The men got away with their
games, and that leaves a good staff to go
against the Northerners.
iither Browning or Henley will be sent
i for the opening game against McCre
dle. Eastiey and Griffin are also counted
on to win their games. Ralph Willis is
at Harbin Springs, baking out a severe
attack of rheumatism. Tom Tennant
and Jimmy Lewis will also remain here
on account of Injuries, as win Melkle,
the busher. Mohler takes the trip with
the team, although it is a question
whether he will be able to rjsrticlpate in
any of the games.
Frank M. Ish, president of the local
club, unable to secure reservations on the
same train with the Seals, left later this
evening, but will be on time to see the
opening In the north.
Umpire Jimmy Toman left for Portland.

Big Chinault was In magnificent form to
day and pitched an absolutely perfeot no

Champions, Incidentally striking out ten
men, four in a row, and receiving eplen

in one inning after two men were out.
Erickson lost oontrol, hit one man and
passed-three all in a row, forcing two
over. Hickey then came in and slammed
the ban against two consecutive batters
forcing in two more. Four runs forced
over in consecutive order come close to
Outside of the few moments that the
Vancouver pitchers were all to the bad,
they pitched great ball and were given
perfect support. In the first six Innings
neither side could break through, and it
looked like a repetition of the 21 Innings
in Vancouver Saturday when neither side
reached the home plate. Portland has
now gone 31 Innings without allowing
their opponents a run.
An odd feature of today's game was
that although Chinault had Vancouver
completely at his mercy, h.5 walked Davis
four consecutive times. Davis was the
only man to reach second In the game.
In the fourth, Cartwright tried to sacri
fice. His pop fly was caught by Chinault.
Davis made a hot-foot back to first and
Chinault threw to Adams who covered.
The ball went through Adams and Davis
trotted down to second.

YACHT GERTRUDE WINS
CLASS A. CCP.
Max Meyer's Sparrow Wins Pretty
Handicap Lack of Breeze .
' Delays Race.
Races were held yesterday by the Ore
gon Tacht Club, although the contests
were postponed until after 5 o'clock In
the afternoon, as the expected breeze
did not spring up until then.
In the class A event, for which there
were three entries, Gertrude, owned by
Jim Hazlett, won by a large margin. The
winner was given possession of the class
A cup. Other entries in this event were
the Jewell, owned by R. Snyder, and the
Mischief, owned by R. W. Foster.
The real sport of the day came In the
handicap race, in which there were six
entries. After considerable Jockeying be
hind the line the yachts got off in a
bunch at the starting gun, H. F. Todd's
Fore'N'Aft and Max Meyer's Sparrow
crossing close together near the Judge's
float, and at once entering into as pretty
a battle as has been seen on the river
for some time.
(Both skippers knew the tricks of their
trade, and the Sparrow made every ef
fort to cut off the wind from the
Fore'N'Aft on the first port tack, but
without success. This tack carried the
boats well over towards tlr island, and
sharp work was done at the turn to the
opposite tack to keep off the shoal water.
On this second tack the bparrow naa a
little the better of things, but did not
keep her advantage, the boats being nip
and tuck on tack after tack until after
they passed out of sight from the yacht
As soon as the buoy at Madison-street
bridge was rounded by the Sparrow she
broke out her spinnaker, and the
Fore'N'Aft followed the maneuver a mo
ment later. Then both boats forged
ahead for the finish line, their great
canvas wings spread on eitner siae.

of Sixth and Washington streets was
the scene of considerable excitement Some
said it was a portion of Colonel Roose

strayed from camp and lost its way, but
it turned out to be a bunch of Portland
ball players bound on a fishing trip to

Graney, Ivor Olson, Jesse Garrett, Ote

Graney Is fond. Graney was also pro

purpose Is not known, for be Is said to
lack control in handling a gun as he is at
times with the baseball.
Ivor Olson wore a khaki suit and looked
every inch a soldi er. Buddy Ryan had
so many different styles of rods, reels
and lines that he is said to have bad
considerable difficulty disentangling him
self at the clubhouse after trying for
two hours to "load" the rods properly.
Jesse Garrett carried a couple of wicked

great admirer of the slugger's hitting
George Ort carried his "Krag," the
