Koestner pitched brilliant ball for
the Portland Coasters yesterday, and
aa the Beavers simultaneously were
beating a tattoo off "Cack" Henley's
spirals, San Francisco lost the second
game in three. The score was t to 1,
and the holiday crowd numbered
lightly over 8000. Paid male admis-
alons were 4067.
Henley was touched up for 11 healthy
swats, the greatest slaughter center
ing in the sixth inning, when Fisher
took one on his ribs and incited Butler,
Rapps and Doane to a fusillade of hits,
ending three scores across. ,
Portland's initial tally was donated
on an error by Corhan in the third in
ning, Rodgers and Krueger following
with singles that sent Lindsay over the
Hard Hitting; Meaaa More Bun.
Healthy slugging added a duet in the
eighth inning. Fisher opened with his
second hit. and was advanced to' third
on Butler's double down the first base
line. The American League castoff
crossed on a passed ball by Berry, and
Butler romped over with the final tally
on an infield out.
, Koestner pitched really wonderful
ball and should have been credited
with a shutout. Fisher opening the
gate by a weird heave past third base,
permitting Howard to trickle home
with the lone tally in the ninth inning,
i This same fellow Howard, who is
'filling Jackson's boots at first base,
started trouble on one or two other
. occasions, and only faulty base running
. by Mundorft prevented first blood for
the Seals in the initial inning.
Sfnadorff Losea Ckaj.ce. .
Mundy occupied second base on a hit
'and a sacrifice at the time, but when
. Howard banged his first double into
leep right field, the .Russian got the
wires crossed with Manager Reidy, his
coacher, and started back for second.
Imagining Doane' had caught the balL
The delay proved fatal, and accurate
pegs by Doane and Butler nabbed him
it the plate.
"Silent Elmey" twirled himself out
f a bad spot In the seventh Inning
after a walk to Howard and hits by
Hartley and Wuffll filled the bases with
ne out. Koestner steadied, fanned
Sedeon and forced Berry to deliver an
abbreviated grounder. Outside of these
two innings the Beavers had smooth
Howard was the headliner among the
Seal sticksmlths with two hits in three.
For the Beavers. Lindsay, Rodgers,
Fisher and Butler all broke into the
limelight as heavy artillerists, Lindsay
going up to .Sll in league batting sta
Ustica, IVaffll Playing Real Bali.
TVuffll, the Spokane kid. is creating
uite a favorable impression around
third base for the Seals, and if he is
a "lucky" hitter instead of a good one,
as charged by several Northwestern
League experts, his luck stands him in
. One stead. In the three games here
he has hatted out four hits in 11 times
for an average of .363.
Portland's new batting star is not
materialising so well; In fact. Hank
-Butcher, the Cleveland recruit, has
begun his career at Recreation Park
under most unfavorable auspices. Not
a blngle has rewarded the determined
chap's efforts in the three days, and
he has whiffed out five times in 11
, trials. Hank Is said to be a natural
bitter, so nobody is worrying much

SEATTLE. Wash.. July 11. (Spe
cial.) For five Innings it looked as
if Seattle had an easy victory over
Portland, but with the retirement of
Fullerton, on account of his arm, the
wind suddenly changed. Passing over
the agony endured by all and the glee
of Nick Williams. It remains to be pro
claimed that the Bugs finally won by
a score fit 8 to 7.
Seattle graDDea eignt runs in tne
first two lnniriKS, seven of which were
charged against Doty, who had as fine
an assortment of benders as could be
desired, but yet failed to stop the Bugs'
batting. Glrot in the remaining six
innings allowed only three hits and no
runs. .. - .
Colt Field Faultlessly. . . .
Portland's fielding all the way
through was errorless. Portland got
one run off Fullerton In the second
when the bases were full on two passes
and a hit by Speaa Shaw threw wide
to first on Doty's easy grounder. This
was the only score the Colts counted
until Fullerton handed over the reins
to Ingersoll at the beginning of the
sixth. Bob had a lead of seven runs
and Raymond figured he should be
able to get through the remaining four
innings without serious trouble.
In two and one-third innings port-
land kept the Bugs racing. Seven hits.
Including three doubles, helped along a
trifle by two errors, let over four
runs and left a flock on the sacks.
Tealey sounded the bugle and Thom
ason hastened to the relief of Bob.
Mahoney Too Eager.
Mahoney cracked one over second.
The ball took a high bound and went
down the field with Mann in hot pur
suit. He got it back in time to find
Mahoney passing second. Two more
runs had come over, making the score
8 to 7. Mahoney's eagerness to reach
third was costly, as Raymond shot to
Chick and Mahoney was out. Spcas
skied to Mann.
In the ninth Thompson was steady
as a clock,, retiring Portland in order.

MULTNOMAH FIVE WINS
TRIPLE B PLAYERS LOSE BY
SCORE OF 26 TO 21.
Contest Is Close Throughout, but
Visitors' Part in Parade Tends
' to Tire Them.
The Triple B basketball team of
Billings. Mont., the acknowledged
champion of the United States, suf
fered its first defeat in two years last
nla-ht when the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic Club scored a 28-21 victory
over, the JElk . visitors. .
' The humbling of the champions may
be- charged to the Elks' convention
Jollification as well as to the prowess
of the Winged "M" squad, for four
hours of marching yesterday and many
hours of celebrating the reunion pre
ceding that, did not tend to prime the
Montanans for the gruelling struggle
in the Multnomah Club gymnasium.
In teamwork and form the Montana
five outclassed the Winged "M" men,
but inability to land the ball after
getting it under the net by clever team
work, lost the game for them.
The Multnomah five went into the
game with small hopes of victory, but
made 'a bold start showing that they
were as good as the Triple B squad,
and, after a few mi nil tea thei Portland
team took the lead.
Todd of Billings, had been making
long shots at the basket from the start
of the game, and landed one from the
middle of the floor, gaining the lead
near the end of the half. This lead was
maintained, and when the first half
ended the B-B-B's led 14 to 13.
Matters went faster in the second
half with Allen and Morris in place of
Keck and Pugh in the Multnomah line
up. The visitors managed to ewen the
score once more, but the new strength
added to Multnomah put the game be
yond the reach of the Montanans.
The Billings five showed exception
al ability in floor work and marks
manship at the baskets. Captain Mark
ham, of the visitors, ascribes the lack
"of more tallies to the stiff baskets and
boards in the Multnomah gymnasium.
The game was fast and furious, with
