BY HARRY M. GRAYSON.
Billy Piercy broke the league's strike
out record for the local lot yesterday
afternoon, whiffing nine Beavers and
winning the fifth game of the series.
Final score Sacramento 6, Portland 2.
Exactly 5189 paid admissions, the larg
est crowd of the year, excepting open
ing day, saw the Mackian machine out
pitched, outhit and outplayed.
It was Lieutenant John C. Oldham'B
first loss in five starts. Red ' beat
Piercy 7 to 2 last Wednesday, so it may
be said that the good-looking youngster
who came back from the Yanks ob
tained sweet revenge. Piercy walked
five but was mighty steady in the
pinches. Oldham issued four bases on
balls and struck out an equal number.
It was a free-hitting contest, Piercy
allowing eight and Oldham ten blows.
Art Griggs hit one of the longest
homeruns ever seen here when he
pounded the stitched Reach over the
right center-field fence for the initial
Senator run in the second. Husky
Arthur had a good day with the stick,
hitting another one against the left
field wall for "two hassocks in the
fifth. He was purposely passed in the
third, which act filled the bases and
paved the way for Roxy Middleton to
pop up to Lew Blue.
Under Pull Three Errors.
Errors were responsible for the last
three Sacramento runs. Rader had a
particularly bad day, pulling three mis
plays, while Siglin and Blue each con
tributed one apiece, which helped
Rodgers men score.
Billy Orr's double in the fourth,
Pinelli's scratch hit to Rader and
etolen base and Marty McGaffigan's
bingle to right permitted to Yippers to
leg it over the top.
Errors by Blue and Rader, Eldred's
eecond stolen base and Middleton's
punch across second gave the Capitol
City boys two unearned runs in the
seventh, with one more being added in
the ninth, when Piercy gained life by
beating out a bunt which he laid down
In order to sacrifice himself that Gus
Fisher might ramble down to the key
stone. Fisher had walked. Oldham
passed McGaffigan, as well as Great
Gus, filling the bases, and after Wolter
forced Fisher at the plate Captain Pat
rick Siglin fumbled Eldred's roller, al
lowing Piercy to place his spikes in the
rubber for the closing run of a sad day
Beavers Play Poorest Game.
Rader's single over second, Wister
zil's out, a passed ball and Blue's Texas
leaguer to right field counted one for
the Mackmen in the -third. Dixie
Walker scored the other Portland
marker in the sixth, when he doubled
to the right-field fence, went to third
on a f'elder's choice and scored on
Oldham's sacrifice fly.
The Beavers played their poorest
game of the week. Despite this fact
there was some nifty fielding done on
the part of Wisterzil, Rader and Siglin,
although the untimely errors by the
latter pair marred their day. Ralph
Pinellt made two hits out of four times
up. The second one was the first real
hit for him during the week. He made
his first safety on Saturday, but it was
decidedly scratchy, as was his first
The final game of the series, which
the Senators must win to break even,
will be played, commencing at 3 P. M.
today. Salt Lake opens here tomorrow.

Plans In Making for Conple or 1 0
Round Contests on July 4.
Medford Plans Card.
Portland's municipal boxing commis
sion will meet for the first time to
night since the ten-round 'boxing bill
became a law on May 29. One of the
most important of several things to
come before the governing body is the
appointment of a matchmaker, which,
under the new law whichever way you
figure it. will pay $100 a show, with a
privilege of 20 per cent of the profits.
So far, from all the information that
can be gathered, there are but two ap
plicants for the DOsition. Thev are
George P. Henry and Bobby Evans.
Henry, according to Secretary-Treas
urer Honeyman, resigned as a member
of the original commission last Febru
ary to pave the way for his appoint
ment at this time. He has been acting
in the capacity of matchmaker since
his resignation as a commissioner.
In the opinion of some persons, the
Job should go to Evans. He staged the
best boxing shows ever put on here
prior to answering his country's call.
From indications, however. Henry has
the inside track on the position.
Chairman Frank E. Watkins will
preside. He says that plans for stag
ing a couple of ten-round goes at the
ball park or Multnomah field on July
4 will be discussed.
Hereafter all matches made must re
ceive tne approval of the tentire com
mission, according to Chairman Wat
kins. This notice from the chairman
came as a result of the poor matches
on the last two cards, caused by inef
ficient matchmaking. The commission

flexible wrists are bad because they
stiffen the swing with the result that
the ball does not go the distance that
the player Is justified in expecting of
