BY BOSCOB FAWCETT.
Sacramento's defense crumbled In
the tenth Inning yesterday and Port
land, for the fourth successive time of
the series, rammed up the pennant
possibilities of the Senators.
The score was, Portland 3, Sacra
It was a furious struggle all the way
through. For nine sizzling frame!

Then In the tenth Kenworthy. the
Wolves' second Backer, booted Rodgers'
grounder and, after a sacrifice by
Lindsay, Do&ne whacked him home
with a screaming single along the
right field foul line. '
Doane's poke gave Fortland another
corner on the gloat market. Five
thousand fans half of them of the
feminine species qualified once again
for the pecan pavilion. Once again an
exhibition of wholesale Insanity was
staged In the McCredlo stadium.
Fans Wildly Excited.
If there had been an alienist in the
crowd the Frank Alleys, the Brandt
Wickershams, the Billy Pangles, the
Dave Welsses and all those other Ted
hot fans would this morning be headed
on their way to the "batty" house.
There was enough comedy, tragedy
and other features flocked around ln
sequestered spots to start a dozen
It Is only necessary to say that Ha
german walked eight Solons and hit
another to show how close local
chapeaux were to the half-mast angle.
Time after time Hagerman shoved his
head into the noose only to save him
self by remarkable flinging or be saved
in turn by wonderful support.
Four times Jimmy Lewis walked and
started assaults that looked like fin
ishers, but even Wolverton's continued
umpire-nagging failed to rattle the

off to the front, thanks to Doane and
his" three swats, thanks to Lober,
thanks to Speas. thanks to Lindsay,
and, above all, thanks to Gus Fisher.
Gas Fisher Saves Game.
Fisher's wonderful throwing to
bases did moro, really, to save Hager
mans' epidermis than any other fea
ture of the defense. Four times Gus
nabbed the visiting speed merchants at
second base after walks, and then the
visitors, too late, started something
that would have added to the member
ship roll of the local lodge of sorrow.
Hagerman allowed six hits, fanned
five and walked eight; Munsell allowed
nine hits, whiffed five and awarded
Portland Took the lead by a run in
each the second and third innings.
Doane's walk and hits by Lober and
Fisher presented the first; Chad
bourne's hit, his stolen base, Rodgers
infield single and a double steal gave
us the second tally.
Sacramento greeted Hagerman with
a volley of small arms In the third in
ning when Tennant's double and sin
gles by Halllnan and Munsell scored
two and enough to tie.
This 2-2 arrangement went through
to the last of the tenth, but not with
out many tremulous times for both
Haieraus Tightens In Pinch.
Kenworthy doubled and stole third
base in the ninth for the visitors with
only one out, but Hagerman tightened
and brought the wild-eyed bugs to
their feat by fanning Bliss and Mun
sell in a row.
The ninth was surely a whirlwind
stanza, for Portland had a magnificent
chance to score In the latter half. Mc
Cormlck walked and was sacrificed to
second, making two out, with Chad
bourne next athlete to face the pitcher.
Wolverton Bhowed his respect for
the man who has broken up two games
of the week by ordering his deliberate
walking. It was here that Mike Mc
cormick revealed himself in a brilliant
thinking role. Munsell and Bliss were
so intent on walking Chadbourne that
they forgot Mike was In the game
but only for a moment, for Mike stole
third base so deliberately and diabol
ically that Bliss made not even the
feeblest attempt to nab him.
And then Bill Speas knocked local
hopes to smithereens by grounding
out, Toung to Tennant.
Shortstop Young starred in the field

OPINIONS NOT ALIKE
Authorities Disagree as to
Score of Thursday's Game.
MAJORITY RULE 5 TO 4
Garry Herrmann, Ban Johnson and
Sporting News Say Sacramento's
Rons Made In Sixth Count.
Lynch Takes Other View.
It had been generally suposed that
baseball had been manicured of its
technicalities by this time. But 'tis
Thomas J. Lynch, president of the
National League, and Allan T. Baum,
president of the Pacific Coast League,
declare that the score of Thursday's
game should be 6-3.
August Herrmann, chairman of the
National Commission; B. B. Johnson,
president of the American League, and
Charles C. Spink, proprietor of the
Sporting News, of St, Louis, a recog
nized authority, take the opposite view
point. Here's the rub.
Thursday's Game Is Issue.
Umpire Phyle called Thursday's game
in the rain after the first half of the
sixth inning, when Sacramento had
Just scored two runs, bringing the total
5-4 in Portland's favor. Phyle ordered
the score to revert to the last equal
Inning, in other words, 6 to 2.
In this President Baum sustained him
Firmly convinced that the officials
had erred in the decision. The Ore
gonlan Thursday night telegraphed all
those whose opinions adorn the fore
going symposium. The snarled replies
reveal that all the tangles have not
been Ironed from the baseball statutes.
Before being elevated to the presi
dency of the National League, Lynch
umpired in the circuit for years. His
"New Tork, Aug. 2. Rule IS cov
ers your case. Score should be that of
last equal innings played. Sacramento
olub was not second at bat In unequal
innings. The score stands 5 to 2.
"THOMAS J. LYNCH."
Herrmann Snya S to 4.
The answer received from August
Herrmann, chairman of the National
"Aurora, II L. Aug. 2. Legal score
of game is 6 to 4 In Portland's favor.
Does not revert to equal inning in your
case as per exception In Rule 2E.
The Sporting News is more explicit
in its reply:
"St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 29. Score
should stand 5 to 4 in official record.
Would only revert to even innings if
Sacramento had tied or gone ahead in
first half of sixth and game then
stopped without Portland .having a
chance to finish its half. If game was
called at end of first half without Sac
ramento tying or passing then score
stands S to 4 and two runs scored in
sixth by Sacramento count.
While it makes little difference
which score is accepted, the technical
ity is new and is worthy of further
The matter will be put up to Presi
dent Baum for more careful reflection
and It is believed that in the long run
he will decide to inscribe the hits, runs
and errors of the extra half inning in
the records as official.

BOSTON, Aug. 19. Sam Langford,

The Boston heavyweight was de
