ONTARIO, Cal., April 1. (Special.)
Portland defeated the Stall & Dean
semi-pros of Los Angeles this after
noon, 5 to 4, but not before the young
sters had handed the McCredie ma
chine another ninth-inning surprise
that might easily have been disas
trous. With the score 5 to 0 in the '
ninth and two out, a couple of hits
and a walk filled the bags, and Joe
Pirrone waltzed up and belted the
ball over the center field fence, scor
ing four runs.
McCredie almost did a Scotch shim
my on the bench. It was this Pirrone
lad whose triple caused the trouble
in -the jrame between the same clans
last Sunday. Pirrone does not belong
in the Casaba league. He ought to be

Motherland Twirls Entire tiame.
Suds Sutherland twirled the entire
nine innings for Portland, while the
angel city boys brought along with
them the two big-league pitchers,
.Red" Oldham of Detroit and Bill
Piercy of New York. In earned runs
the major league duo had the best
of the argument. The Beavers earned
three of their quintet, but the other
two were handed to them on an error
by Piercy when the New Yorker was
playing second base. All four of the
visitors' registrations were earned.
Up to the ninth Sutherland had the
Kml-pros feeding out of his hand.
He fanned 11 batsmen and while they
hit him freely he always tightened in
time, until the final blow-off.
Hits were 10 off Sutherland and
31 off Oldham and Piercy. Oldham
pitched five innings and retired with
the score 3 to 0 against him. The
other two were earned off Piercy.
Lew Blue's hitting featured for the
Beavers. Blue bagged three hits and
earned four bases. Blue's double and
"Wistcrzil's single scored the first run
in the third. Baker's double and an
error by Piercy and Blue's second
two-base swat scored two more off
Oldham in the fourth.

League Talent and Team
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., April 1.
(Special.) Babe Holling, a product of
the lots around here, rooked to the
Chicago Cubs today like Alexander
usually looks to his opponents. Babe
beat the big leaguers 8 to 1 at Oak
land and he had them shut out until
Parker's double was followed by
Lear'a single in the ninth, giving the
Cubs their lonely run. Manager Mit
chell tried out three young pitchers
on the Oaks and he is now convinced
that that brand of pitching will not
get him very far with Coast league
So he will likely show a real pitcher
like Alexander, Vaughn, Tyler, Hen
drix or Martin when he plays in
Oakland aCHin nTt KlinrlaV mnmirtcr
The bushers can't make the grade. I
The Cubs started a horse of a young
man named Abe Lincoln. Bailey, w,ho
holds the eating championship of the
squad and who will eat himself out of
a job if he does not show more pep
in the box and lesB enthusiasm at
the table. Bailey got away with his
job for three innings all right, but
in the fourth Dennie Wilie walked,
took third on Hack Miller's single and
scored on a wild pitch. That was the
beginning of the end for Bailey, for
In the fifth the Oaks scored seven
runs, driving Bailey to the showers.
Young Mitchell at short for the
Oaks had a good day and he will
probably start the season at that im
portant station. Hack Miller made a
couple of long running catchea and
the whole Oakland team looked su
perior to the Cubs:

SENATORS NEEDING PITCHERS
Rodgers Has Only Two Depend
able Men for Start of Season.
SAN' FRANCISCO, Cal.. April 1.
(Special.) With the start of the sea
ion only a few days off the Sacra
mento team Is as badly off for pitch
ers as the seals for catchers. Bill
Rodgers has only Walter Mails and
Ken Penner upon whom he can bank
right now. He is hoping that Bill
r.-ough- can take, a regular turn.
Larkin is the only other man of 'any
experience on the squad.
Rodgers is hoping these four can
carry the club along the first month.
Bill Stumpf will start the season at
third base. He has beaten out Willis
Butler and Les Sheehan. Rodgers
thinks his club will be so fast that
his men will kick dust in the eyes
of his rivals, for Eldred, Mollwitz.
Middleton. McGaffigan, Compton and
Schang are all steppers.
BEE BOOSTERS HAVE HOPES
Salt Jake Prepares to Lcuve for
Home Open ins.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. April 1.
(Special.) Salt Lake is all hopped up
over its ball club this year, according
to advices received here. When the
sale of box seats was opened more
were sold for opening day than ever
before since the club has been there.
Now that Marty Krug is to join the
club. Manager Johnson thinks he has
a winner. Mulligan does not look
bad at third base.
Spider Baum was here today and
expects Lefty Leverenz to have a
big year, for the sore arm that
bothered him last season is as loose
as a whip lash now. The Spider
thinks well of Joe Jenkins, the
catcher secured from the Chicago
White Sox, and he says the speed of
the club will surprise some folks.

CAN yoi imagine a player forget
ting to take his turn at bat, while
his club was staging a batting rally
that decided the game? No? Well,
that happened in a major league
game six or seven years ago. Inci
dentally, it caused the manager of the
team to bat out of turn. The game
was won by this batting out of turn,
as the manager singled and drove in
two runs that won the game. Since
the team in the field failed to no
tice the slip up, the thing worked to
the advantage of the team at bat. but
it might have been different had It
becen discovered. During the rally
the player sat on the bench, evidently
counting his savings for the season,
as it was near the close of the race.
At the recent world series at Cin
cinnati I bumped into 'T'itcher Bill
Burns, who twirled for several
American league clubs and also In the
American association. Burns had a
lot of stuff, and had he taken the
game seriously he might have been a
star, but nothing troubled Bill. He
took things as they came. Within
the last year or so Burns, who has big
oil holdings in the south, is said to
have struck it rich. He looked like a
million dollars when 1 saw him in
Cincinnati, and they do say the buy
ing of a ball club by Bill would be
a mere matter of form as far the
financial consideration is concerned.
When I saw Bill I had to smile as rriy
memory reverted to a game he pitched
at St. Louis years ago for Washing
ton. If there ever was a thing Burns
liked to do, it was sleep. After, we
had exchanged greetings I remarked:
"I don't suppose it matters how late
or when you- sleep now, Bill, since you
are one of the oil kings." Burns
smiled and evidently got what I was
driving at, for he replied:
"Nope, if I feel like falling to sleep
I just naturally do it, and when I
wake up I have no fear that my little
nap has cost me $25 or $50."
To explain. Burns was pitching at
St. Louis and going great guns. Bill
was an Indifferent cuss. Close games
didn't worry him any. For seven in
nings the two teams went runless.
Burns was the last out in the sev
enth, so that when his team came to
bat for the first half of the eighth,
he got himself a nice shady seat on
the end of the bench back of one of
the big water bottles . away from
everybody. It -was only a few sec
onds before Bill was asleep. His
team went out and got him a couple
of runs and there was much excite
ment for everybody except Burns, who
slumbered peacefully on, according to
the story. When the Washington
team went to the field and got ready
to start the pitcher was missing.
Burns was still enjoying his nap
back of the water bottle. He was
roughly aroused by Joe Cantillon.
Then just to prove his nap had been
beneficial he set the first two men
down on strikes and caused the other
batter to pop up. However, Joe Can
tillon raved for a month about a
pitcher who could go to sleep while
his team was making a couple of runs
for him in a 0-to-0 game.

destinies of Hugh Walker, the fast
coming young Kansas City heavy
weight, who will tangle ten rounds
with Frank Farmer at the Milwaukie
arena next Wednesday night, is be
seiged with offers for his battering
San Francisco. Oakland. Seattle.
Taconrui and Kansas City promoters
are after Walker's services and
Thomas hopes to close for two and
perhaps three fights within the next
The latest offer was from "Moose"
Taussig yesterday. Taussig is now
the matchmaker for the Coliseum
club in San Francisco and wants
Walker to meet Harry Greb. the
Pittsburg light-heavyweight, April 15.
"Moose" asked for Walker's best
terms. and Thomas complied with his
Tiooma Date Probable.
George Shanklin. the popular Taco
ma boxing promoter. has signed
Walker to box for his Eagles' club
April 22, his opponent yet to be
selected. "Wild Bill" Reed, the Ari
zona Goliath, who knocked out
"Bevo" Kruvoksy in Tacoma the
other night, will probably be the
man that Shanklin will pick to send
In against Walker. Of course the
going through with the date probably
hinges a good deal on how Hugh
comes out with Frank Farmer next
Both Oakland and Kansas City
promoters have offered Walker a
match with Fred Fulton," the Kansas
City match to go 12 rounds and the
Oakland bout slated for four periods.
Walker is being picked to beat
Farmer when they clash, because of
his great agressivenesss and punch
ing qualities. Farmer has fought a
lot of light punchers and boys who
were not tough enough to stand up
under his onslaughts, but when he
steps In the ring against Walker he
will be bucking "concrete" and not
"cream puffs." Mick King, Young
Hector and the like will never bother
the sparse haired Tacoma veteran, but
the Boy McCormicks and Hugh
Walkers spell trouble. However,
Frank Is a tough, heady old ringman
and besides packing a broadside of
heavy artillery can step around.
Before Gunboat Smith left San
Francisco- last week some of his
friends remarked to him that he had
made a bad step when he agreed to
tangle with Fred Fulton in the main
event of the Milwaukie boxing com
mission card next Wednesday night,
but this is what the Gunner had to
Gunner la Confident.
"These people who are continually
telling me that I made a bad match
make me tired. They are very en
couraging, to say the least. If I didn't
think I was going to whip Fulton I
would not have made the match. If
Fulton makes a good showing with
me I'll probably agree to box him
four rounds in Oakland. But If I
should land on his chin and stop him,
he wouldn't be a drawing card."
Fulton. Smith and Walker worked
out at their respective hours yester
day before nearly 300 boxing fans at
the Kendall-Garlock gymnasium. Ad
"Spats" Garlock had to do all the
work himself yesterday as Kendall
had not yet recovered from the right
cross that Gunboat put on htm
Wednesday in their workout. Kendall
sprained one of his ankles when he
went down and had to stay home yes
terday. Smith took the floor at 1 o'clock
sharp and sparred three rounds with
Muff Bronson. He was unable to
line up a heavyweight boxing partner
and was forced to take on -Muff.
Hugh Walker worked six rounds
taking on "Knockout" Carmen
middleweight, and a big 200-pound
fireman for three rounds apiece.
Walker opened up on the fireman and
had his best workout in a week
Fulton started at 3 o'clock and
worked for nearly an hour. He boxed
his sparring partner, "Mexican" Joe
Lawson, three rounds and then stepped
two cantos with Henry Wilde, a local
aspirant, who is nearly as big as
SwinehaTt left for Seattle
with Joe Mandot in tow.
The famous New Orleans lightweight
scheduled to meet Bobby Harper
of Seattle in the main event of to
night's card under the auspices of the
Elks club. Mandot has been training
hard and is in good shape for the
bout. He Is down to meet Muff Bron
son In a round tilt at the Milwaukie
arena next Wednesday.
Al Summers, the rugged Portland
middleweight, passed through Port
land yesterday on his way to Spo
kane, where he is billed to meet Harry
Glllum of Seattle in a six-round bout
next Friday night. Sommers also
has a match on at Lewiston, Idaho.
Ad Macke. the local featherweight,
