Ty" Falkenberg's old soupbone was
altgether too much for the Beavers
yesterday afternoon. and Portland
dropped the third fame of the series
via Whitewash avenue. The former

side-arra delivery let "our boys' down
with three measly hits. Score. Oak

"Lefty" bchroeder made his first ap
pearance as a Beaver at Twenty-fourth
and Vaughn streets, and during- his
eight Innings of occupancy, although
nicked for eight hits, pitched good
enough baseball to have won an ordi
nary ball game. As most youngsters
do. the Albina kid looked bad once or
twice when the enemy got to bunting
the horsehlde. But two of the three
runs registered off the big portsider
were earned.

Schroeder retired in Portland's half
f the eighth to allow Captain Patrick
Siglin to strike out for him. Joe Dailey
then made his 1919 debut and. despite
tne fact that he was welcomed by sin
gles on the part of Murphy and Samuel

Farmer misjudged Elliott's Ions' fly as
a result of which Elliott gets credit for
a two-bagger, and a brace of those
things that win ball games were chased
across. Kowdy went to third on Falk-
nberg's sacrifice hit and was wild
pitched over the top.
Grover'a double and singles by Cooper
and Gutsto accounted for the Oaks
first run In the opening canto. Jaycat
Ewings hired help turned the trick
again in the second. Lane's swat to
center shoved Murphy across the
Rhine. Murph had beat out a tap to
Klngdon, was sacrificed to second and
proceeded on his merry way. taking
third on Elliott's infield out.
The Acorns' third run. which came in
the seventh, was unearned because of
I'.ader'a error. Bohne singled through
the pitrher's box and went to second
while Kingdon was stopping Elliott's
hit just to the right of the keystone
sack. Bohne overran the middle sta
tion and would have been caught get
ting back had not Pendleton Donald
fumbled Klngdon's toss. Before King
don could recover the pellet and get it

difficult corner. He was on the tally

may be a different tale.
Klngdon made h'.a first error of the
week yesterday, although he has the
earmarks of a great pastimer who
needs seasoning both In the field and
at bat. Koehler fills in nicely at first
base, but Blue is missed for both his

Study of Team Hitting Explains Po
sition in League Race.
There is good reason for the Salt
Lake club making such a showing in
the coast league race. It is far in the
lead in team batting and is third in
team fielding.
The Bees are hitting at a .294 clip.
which is very high for a team average.
It is 16 points more than Oakland,
which is in second place, can show.
Portland, with .259, is next to lust place,
uhich is held by Sacramento. Vernon
leads the league in club fielding, with
969, with Los Angeles second. Portland
