The stellar twirling of -Speck" Hark-
ness and a spectacular seventh Inning
rlly gave the Portland Beavers a S-0
victory over the San Francisco Seals
yesterday afternoon, making the teams
even for the series and likewise for
the srames played this season.
Fanning, the light bander with smoke
galore, was introduced to the Elks'
week crowd of tOOO, and until the fatal
seventh the twirling advantage was
his. During the first six Innings the
hit column showed six against both
Fanning and Harkness. but while Fan
ning was traveling along at an easy
clip, only the most sensational twirling
saved Harkness from early scoring.
Faaalag Blows L la Seveata.
But In the seventh, the cheering of
the fans for the regulation rally seemed
to unman the Seal moundman and four
healthy bingles encompassed his down
fall. Gus Fisher, the flrst man up.
singled sharply to center on the flrst
pitched ball. Butler sacrificed to sec
ond, and "Roaring Bill" Rapps. whose
roaring was not confined exclusively
to the voice, drove the ball over Mun
dorfTs head In right center. "Mundy"
toyed with the ball a few moments and
Rapps went to third. Fisher scoring.
Harkness fanned for the second out,
but Doane rewarded his admirers by
dropping the ball Into short left, scor
ing Rapps. Doane stole second, and
scored when Lindsay lined out his
fourth hit of tho game, a drive be
tween flrst and second on a slow ball
meant to be deceptive.
Seals Bid for Victory.
In the sixth and the ninth Innings
the Seals made bids for victory. In the
first-named period, three men reached
the paths, but two were gone; and
"Speck" struck out Corhan. In the
ninth. Seal hopes took on a bullish ap
pearance when Corhan beat out a
hard grounder to Butler and Gedeon
walked after Wuffll had fanned. But
Williams' shoved In to bat for Fanning,
itruck out, and Mundortf was unequal
to bis oft-repeated task of lifting the
sail over the fence.
The feature of the game was the
hitting of Bill Lindsay. Beaver in
ilelder. In four times at bat ho singled
each time, tbo daily average of 1000
bringing him up again Into the class
of .300 bitters.
Elmer Koestner will carry the Beaver
mound burden today, opposed prob
ably by Delhi. The irame will not
start until after the Elks' parade, but
will not be delayed later than 4

Notes of the Game.
McCarthy Joined the error squad on his
flrM Portland decision. He called Doane out
at flrst when It was apparent to all that
the fleet outfielder had the throw beaten by
a foot. ' '
When Butcher failed te come up on a
Texas leaguer and dropped a fly. the fans
started a chorus of "Chadboume." But
Hank made a nice running -catch, which
started another cry of "Butcher."
Del Howard made his initial appearance
before the Portland fans. He la a big fel
low, but handles himself well at first.
Kid Mohler tried to steal third In the
fourth Inning, but waa nipped with ease.
Two were on when he made the attempt
and his effort robbed the Seals of a splen
did chance to score, n? not of a run..
Bill Reldy and Mohler occupied coaching,
line positions tn an effort to start some
thing in the ninth, but Harkness had the
' batsmen at hla mercy. Nine strikeouts was
his record for the day.
Mundorf let Lindsay's hit get through him
In the seventh. Doane scoring without the
chance of a close play at the plate.
Herby Byram. the twlrler released by
Sacramento, was tn Portland yesterday on
hla way to Vancouver, where ho will join
Bob Brown's Northwestern League club.
Byram pitched splendid ball for the Sena
tors last year, but haa failed to strike hla
stride yet this season.

SEATTLE. Wash., July 10. (Spe
cial.) James won. his ninth consecu
tive victory today, beating Portland,
fi-3, in one of the hardest-fought and
most sensational finishes of the season.
The winning run came over in the last
of the ninth, on McMullin's Texas
leaguer over third with the bases full.
In a desperate effort to reach the ball
Cruikshank and Kibble had a head-on
collision and were knocked senseless.
The moment the crowd, which had
been worked up to great- enthusiasm
by the desperate struggle, saw that the
ball was going to fall safe, they broke
into wild cheers, only to be silent when
they lav the two lunners come to
gether with terrific force and bounce
back, falling to the ground, where they
lay as If dead.. ,
Both Heat Badly Hurt.
Hundreds of fans swarmed on the
field and surrounded the stricken men.
Several minutes elapsed before they
regained consciousness. Cruikshank
was able to walk, his injury consisting
of a blow on the Jaw and mouth. He
was spitting blood. Kibble had to be
helped. His temple was badly bruised.
At the beginning of the ninth the
score was a tie at 3-all. The hits were
a tie at S-all and both James and Vea
sey were going strong. James lost
McDowell for a starter. Moore shot a
grounder past Chick. Ccrftrin skied
oft to left. Harris, batting for Vea
zey. struck out. Kibble skied to Moran,
ending the half of the inning.
With Veasey out, Williams sent in
Girot, who walked Moran. Chick bunt
ed and Girot threw the ball over first.
Both runners were safe. Jackson, who
had given Seattle their three runs by
a homer In .the second, was walked,
filling the sacks. Williams yanked
Girot and sent in Doty. Whaling drove
to McDowell, who made a swell peg to
the plate, forcing Moran. McMullIn
batted for James and had two strikes,
Doty's drop being a peach. On the next
ball McMullin sliced It over third.
What happened has already been told.
