Into every man's life creeps one big
ambition that overshadows everything
else. For the Kaiser just now Paris Is
the goal; Bill Hanley yearns for 18,
000,000 of Uncle Sam's kale; Hap Hogan
would give his kingdom for a pennant;
Astoria breathlessly awaits 40 feet over
the bar. It is always something that
comes about once in a lifetime, and to
the ball pitcher that elusive butterfly
13 generally a no-hit game.
Yesterday the bis; thins came to
Southpaw Johnny Lush, of Portland.
Lush pitched a no-hlt grams against
"Venice in the final double-header of the
series, and, by a strange prank of for
tune, it was the one game that Portland

Poor Support Loses Game.
Lush performed in the second affair.
Had he received any kind of support
the Tigers would never have registered
even one run. But divers and sundry
members of his backing contrived to
boot the ball and run bases like ama
teurs, and as Southpaw Dr. Harris
White was pitching a superb brand of
.pastime, it was ' Lush's luck to draw
the zero end of the tallying.
White allowed eight hits.
The Tigers' score pattered across In
the fifth inning, when Davis tossed high
over Derrick's head and put Lltschi on
second base. An infield out boosted
Litschi to third and Yantz' failure to
hold one of Lush's low shoots brought
disaster. It was scored as a wild pitch.
Even at that had Yantx been a quick
thinker he could have saved the game.
Rowdy Elliott was batting at the time
and Rowdy deliberately blocked Tantz'
return throw to tho plate.
Litschi Slides In.
Had Yantz thrown the ball Into
Elliott there would have been nothing
left for the ump but to call the runner
out. But he threw high to Lush and
Litschi slid In underneath.
The Venice Tigers went southward
last night' with four of the five games
of the series credited to them. Happily
for Portland the rival teams in the
league were satisfied with splitting
double-headers, so the Beavers still
are enjoying the topmost scenery In
In the first game of the double
decker 3800 fans saw Southpaw Roy
Hitt clubbed unmercifully by the Sic
Credieites after his teammates had
driven Rieger out of the box under a
Hitt was banked for IS lnsty swats,
six of which were bunched in the fourth
inning, yielding five runs. All the dam
age was done after two were, out and
we must thank Umpire McCarthy for
assisting in the obsequies.
Ryan Should Have Been Oat.
Even the wise and crafty Hogan
failed to register a murmur of protest,
but Buddy Ryan should have been
called out for running far inside the
diamond on his tap to Hitt. Hitt's
throw was perfect, but It took Ryan
in the back and left men on first and
second bases with two out, and one run
Yantz belted Speas and Ryan across
with the tying runs by a screaming
double over Carlisle's head. Eastley,
who had succeeded Rieger on the
mound, followed with a single to right
and both Yantz and Eastley scored on
Bancroft's Texas leaguer over short.
Leard saved further carnage by mak
ing a remarkable one-hand stab of
Badgers' line drive. Dave Bancroft
also starred with a remarkable kanga
roo catch at short In the eighth inning,
doubling Carlisle off first.
Carlisle was really the-causa of Rie
ger's downfall, for he opened the first
game with a homer over the right-field
fence, Eastley pitched good ball when
he relieved Rieger and received credit

NEW YORK PLAYS BETTER
Reversal of Form Likely to Be Too
Late Unless Boston Hits Snag.
NEW YORK. Sept 20. Five victories
for Boston and five victories and two
defeats for New "Sork tell the story ot
the struggle of tne past week between
the rivals for the National League pen
nant. The Braves forged further ahead
early in the week, while the Giants
were winding up their disastrous cam
paign in Philadelphia, where they lost
three out of five games. Since then,
however, the race has been virtually
even. McGraw's men gained a half
game by outplaying Cincinnati, while
the Braves were Involved In a tie en
counter with St. Louis.
A three-game gap now separates the
two clubs, a decided advantage for Bos
ton at ,this stage, when only a little
more than a fortnight of play remains
before the season closes.
Starting in with the Cincinnati series
the Giants began to play better ball
than they have shown for months, in
different fielding Jeing offset by su
perior pitching and lively batting. It
looks, however? as though the cham
pions' reversal of form had come too
late, their only apparent salvation now
being the chance that the Bostons will
strike a snag, either In the remainder
of the series with the Westerners or in
the clash with the Giants beginning
In the American League Boston has
made little progress against Philadel
phia, although the latter team has been
playing below its midseason form. The
Red Sox lost a good chance to gain yes
terday by taking a beating from Cleve
land while the Athletics were losing
to Detroit. Today, with an exchange
of opponents, both Athletics and Red
Sox won, but the victory of the Red
Sox was a double one, and the lead of
the Mackmen was reduced to six and a
Indianapolis sgaln forged to the front
today in the Federal League.

LUSTI'S GAME FIRST LIKE IT
Losing No-Hit Contest Unparalleled
In Coast League.
SACRAMENTO, Cal Sept. 20. (Spe
cial.) The loss of a no-hlt game by
Lush, of Portland, is unparalleled in
Coast League history, at, least in the
last four years. Harry Abies, of Oak
land, came the nearest to it in 1911,
when, on June 13, he allowed Los An
geles no hits, but the Dillonltes man
aged to put over one run and Oakland
barely nosed In, a 2-to-l winner. In
1913 Klawltter, then of Sacramento,
allowed Venice only one hit, but lost
2 to 0.
Lush's no-hit game is the second of
the 1914 season, Roy Hitt, of Venice,
having blanked San Francisco with no
hits on July 19 at Los Angeles, only
rive seals getting cn tne patns, two
through errors and three by walks.
Ryan, of Los Angeles, pitched the
only no-hit game of 1913, blanking
Portland at Venice on May 18. A Bi
Inning game called on account of rain,
in which James, of Portland, did not
allow Los Angeles a hit, can hardly be
classed with Kyan s full game.
Toner, of San Francisco, pitched the
only no-hit game of 1912, winning, 2 to
0, against Portland on May 21.
Three no-hit games were pitched in
1911. On April 25, Sutor, of San Fran
Cisco, blanked Oakland, 1 to 0, and al
lowed no hits. On July 5, Henkle, i
recruit college pitcher, twirled Port
land to a l-to-0 win over Sacramento,
allowing a semblance of a hit which,
towards the end of . the game, was
changed to an error by the scorer.
