SACRAMENTO. Cal., April 1. (Spe
cial.) One turgid wallop by Arthur
Korea, a respected citizen of Milwau
kee. Wis., defeated Sacramento 1-0 in
the second game of the 1914 Pacific
Coast season. The hit was sufficient.
' It sailed for a sizzling home run in
side the park, and broke up as brilliant
a twirling duel between West and
Stroud as one could hope to muster in
a year's travel from Bankok to Bir
mingham and back again.
Score: Portland 1, Sacramento 0.
Twq men were out and the score was
8-0 in the first of the ninth when the
Dutchman strode to tho plate. Twice
he had fanned before, but this time
the hard-hitting- third baseman braced
his slightly bowed legs, took one
hasty sight at a fast one and laced it
on a line far out to the outer works,
midway between Left Kielder Schweit
zer and Moran in center.
Kores Brats Ball to Plate.
Like a sepulchral echo from Torreon.
the ball came hurtling back to the
home plate too late to do any good .for
the Wolverton cause. Korea had
crossed the plate two seconds before
and had chalked up for Walt Mc
t'redie's champions the second straight
win of the series..
The Dutchman's was a mighty poke,
but we must not forget the masterful
pitching of both slabsters. Hi West and
Italph Stroud. West, of course, is en
titled to most credit of the two. He
pitched a. resourceful, brainy, well nigh
perfect battle. The Senators swung
vainly at his curves and fast ones
alike. So ably did Hi mix them that
only four hits were made against him
in the nine innings, and one of those
was a tiny, skinny, insignificant bunt.
"Goshamity" and a couple . of
"phews!" How the bix ex-Cleveland
right-hander did stand the Sacrament,
ans on their heads! Two or three
times Hi found himself struggling in
deep water, through his walks or
breaks in the defense, and on those
occasions the master mind could be
best discerned working in all its splen
dor. In the ninth the Wolves had men
on first and second, from a hit and
Davis' error, but West forced Schweit
zer to fly out to short, thus ending the
excitement. Davis offset by a brilliant
stop in the sixth inning.
Huddy Ryan. Doane and Lober again
featured in Portland's batting. The
two gardeners garnered two apiece off
Stroud, who was dented for seven hits.

In Ihe seventh inning on a single to
right, Kores' sacrifice and a wild piteh,
and then he died there. Lober and
Derrick could not bring him in. In
the ninth Buddy opened with a lino
drive against the right field fence, but
was caught at second on a perfect
throw by Shinn.
McCredie tried out his young back
stop. Homer Haworth. and he gave a
good account of himself. There was a
slight hesitancy about his throwing
that needs manicuring, yet Haworth
did remarkably well for a debut. He
nabbed three men in six attempts at
