Southpaw Harry Suter made his de-
hut In a Portland uniform yesterday,
and, while he stewed through nine full
Innings with amazing fortitude, he
walked 10 Vernonltcs, which was Dogey
with that other handsome Harry
Stewart Ditching brilliant ball. The
score of the second game of the series
was Vernon 4, Portland 0.
Suter's free passes were evenly
sprinkled about in the box score but
he managed to stagger from under the
trouble up to Inning five. Then Brash
ear's third walk, a single by Bayless
and a double steal gave Vernon one
The southpaw steered skillfully from
that on up to the ninth inning when
he passed Carlisle for the fourth con
secutive time. Singles by Kane. Hosp
and Litschi followed, driving in inree
more and clinching the bargain.
Pinch Hits Fall to Come.
Up to the very end the Beavers had
Hogan guessing, but the melancholic
pinch hit failed to appear. In five
of the nine innings Portland engi-
neered men around to third base had
' the bases full on one occasion but
1 there either Stewart, the humidity or
some other machination of fate Inter
vened and tumbled them Into the mire
nf a shutout.
The game was not the sparkling en
gagement one might imagine from a
peep at the scoreboard. It was pokey
and about as Inspired as an Olympic
archery contest, dragging out through
two hours and 18 minutes of an after
noon torrid enough to put blossoms on
"a field of popcorn.
Doane, the speed demon who cavorts
in right field for Portland, performed
sensationally enough, to have won most
any game. He hit three times, start
ing that many ralliea and, after being
left to martyrdom on the first two
occasions, took the law into his own
hands in the seventh inning, stole sec
ond and followed a moment later by
pulling the rarity of a steal to third
base on a short fly ball to left field.
Carlisle Caught Asleep.
Carlisle was caught with his cere
bral cogs on the dead center this time
for it was on his easy toss to Short
stop Litschi that Doane made his re
markable advance. Doane's team-mates
didn't give him time to steal home.
Rodgers, too, came through twice with
men on bases but he spoiled his bat
ting record by some mediocre work in
the field, muffing three thrown balls
in the afternoon.
He helped to present Vernon with
the first score in the fifth Inning.
Brashear had walked and gone around
to third on Bayless" single to right
field. Fisher attempted to nip a dou
ble steal but Rodgers let the rather

It Is doubtful whether he could have

Happy Hogan. the joy of the 33d
degree fan. Injected a little life into
the matinee on divers occasions by ob
jecting to what he considered the pus
sillanlmous umpiring of his former
pal, Perle Casey. Perle, with his coat
peeled off and harness hung over a
grey shirtwaist, took the serio-comic
"kidding" good-naturedly but just for
old times' sake banished Hogan to the
bench as often as he approached the

Shortstop Bancroft maneuvered In
the infield like greased lightning and
cut off a couple of tallies but was
weak at the bat. The score:

SPOKANE, Wash., July 18. (Special.)
Portland started off today with two
runs right off the reel. Two runs are
not a whole lot, but they've won many
a ball game. Then Spokane got five,
but the tumult and the shouting were
scarcely over before Portland made that
big lead look small. Portland got
three runs in the lead and yet strange
to say nearly everybody felt sure
something would happen before the
game was over. It did. Spokane got
one, then the three needed to win.
Final score: Spokane 9. Portland 8.
It was a glorious 'ladles' day ball

Pitchers Treated Badly.
Recreation Park these days is no de
cent place for a pitcher. Only two have
managed to go through the route in
the four games to date. The average is
about three per game, per team. To
day the opposing managers called upon
five and the day before they used up
Cochrane was wild and after he had
walked the first two batters up in the
third and had two balls on Cruikshank,
Ostdlek yanked him and called in
Kraft. "Uncle Dave" did not last the
inning through, and after he had
walked two Noyes waa summoned, in
the remaining six Innings Noyes al
lowed but two hits, but a muff by
Melchoir on an easy fly ball that should
have retired the side meant four runs
for Portland. Cooney's error was con
verted Into another run and ,it looked
as if Noyes' No. 13 hoodoo was out to
get his scalp for sure.
Muff by Speaa Costly.
But by keeping at it, the Indians
manaeed to eet runners on. Then Billy
Speaa conveniently muffed Altman's
long fly and everybody went nomo
happy, forgetting all about Melcholr's
Glrot was lucky to get out with his
life the way the Indians were shooting
'em back past him. Doty, who relieved
him in the second, pitched straight
ball for three or four Innings, when he
