BT Lu H. GREGORY.
The Angels won yesterday's game
so easily that they hardly worked
up a sweat doing it," though the day
was a 93-inthe-shade scorcher
without any shade. The score was
7 to 3. The home athletes suffered
from acute inability to hit the pel
let anywhere but in the air, no
fewer than 18 of their attempts
being lofty infield or outfield flies.
The hardest worked athlete on
the ball field was Red Baldwin, the
Los Angeles catcher. For some rea
son the Beavers seemed to figure
that if they hit 'em often enough
and high enough, Red eventually
would drop a foul. So they kept
popping over his head to port and
starboard, but the higher the onion
soared the easier Red snared it.
He hauled in six sky-scrapers in
the afternoon's workout, which is
worth mention in any league.
Another event -of note was the
fact that the defeat was the 100th
of the season for the Beavers. Two
clubs in the league, San Francisco
and Vernon, have won 100 games
this year, but the Beavers are the
first to lose that many. Even Sa
cramento, with a long running start,
has dropped only 99.
Angels Take Series,
The game gave the Angels the
series, four games to three. The
Killeferites lost no time putting
the contest away. In the first in
ning with one out they obtained a
two-run ' lead on a steal, four
scratchy infield singles and a sacri
fice fly. Carroll made the first of
the four hits and the steal. His pil
fer was the break of the inning and
of the game. Rip King had him a
mile but his throw was wide of the
bag. Three more scratches and a
long fly followed off Sullivan and
the works were in.
In the third the Angels scored
one on another steal, by McCabe,
sandwiched between two "hits. In
the fourth they got two more, a
single and two doubles by Spencer
and Carroll doing it.
After the fifth Jimmy Middleton
decided to try some of the bushers
who are cluttering up the Portland
bench. He put Paton on short,
Connolly on second and a big under
hander named Gilbert, the pride of
Goshen, Or., went in to pitch. Gil
bertleoked scared to death, but for
all that he did some wicked fling
ing and will bear watching.
Gilbert Shows Stuff.
In the sfxth he retired the side
lnstanter, - but in the seventh he
went wild and two runs came in.
With one down, Twombley walked
and Baldwin trickled a bouncer past
second. Lindimore walked, filling
the sacks, and Gilbert zoomed a
fast one across Beck's dinner bas
ket, which forced in a runner. A
second run tallied on an out at first.
But for all his inexperience the
Angels couldn't seem to hit Gilbert
in the pinches and he retired the
side runless in the next two ses
sions. In the Beaver half of the seventh
a belated rally off Dumovitch netted
three runs, two of them scoring
when Charley High knocked a curve
ball over the right field fence with
Hale on second, following his
double. Then Gressett doubled and
Gilbert, the busher, considered an
easy mouthful, gummed up the
works with another double on which
Today come the San Francisco
Seals and we shall see what we
shall see. Jimmy Middleton and
the whole home crew would willing
ly pass the next two months in the
cooler if they, could take down that
cocky crowd for just enough games
to let Vernon ease back into the
lead. The Portland players hate the
Seals, as do all the other clubs of
the league, and they will play their
beads off to beat them.
Seals Not Invincible.
Maybe it will be another seven
game slaughter, such as the Seals
have just given the Suds at Seattle,
and maybe it will not. The Beavers
piayed mighty good ball in some of
the Los Angeles games this week,
and if they can do as well this week
they have a chance of copping. The
Seals are not invincible for all their
Middleton has saved Lefty Lev
erenz to open against the Seals this
afternoon. Sutherland will pitch a
game against them, Middleton will
take his turn, and Leverenz prob
ably will hurl again Sunday. If
jockeying and trying will do it, the
San Franciscans will have a tough
The Seal management is probably
in telegraphic communication with
Judge Landis and if the Beavers
should happen to win, Middleton
may expect to be called on the car

ing; Rules Are Ignored.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
MILWAUKEE, ' Sept. 11. P'nkey
Mitchell of Milwaukee and Tommy

in a game of fisticuffs, which for
its ferocity and general all-round
flagrancy of boxing rules has never
been equaled in the state. It was a
battle royal, one of those pre-hls-toric
sort of affairs.
Out of all the wrestling, back
snapping, biting and what-not
Mitchell emerged victorious with a
shade the better of his tigerish rival
for the favor of the community
