For th first time sine Jun M the
Beaver hav been dragged from th
top limb, and In their place perch Happl
cut Hogan and hi Vernon band. It all
happened bcaua the Hooligan, wera
successful tftltiit Sacramento and th
Beaver fell before th Oak by a 1 to

Harry Wotvenon trotted out Henry
Pernod to do tl heaving tor hi bunch,
and th stout-llrrrr-ed youngster, who
formerly pitched for Portland. Aberdeen
a ad Detroit, put It all over the Beaver
almost all of the time. In a couple of
Innings he was greatly favored by horee-
hoe luck, but deopite thl he won hi
game and I entitled to tne glory,
Zacher Score Hon.
Rennv Henderson, who chucked for
MrCredle. fell luckiesaly In th second
frame. He offered a fat one to Herr
Zacher. and that huaky Individual
(lammed It against 'th left field wall
for two sacks. Wolverton hit to Peck-
inpaugh. who passed up th batter on
seeing he had a chance to nail Zacher
at third, but In throwing to bheenan
Perk's peg spanked Zacher on the shoul
der and bounded to the stand which al
lowed the blonde-topped Oaklander to
tally the only run of the game. It wa
a hard lurk play, though a moment later
Tledemann fanned and Kuhn muffed th
third tr1ke. but even then Henderson
settled nd held them safe.
Th Beaver had no chonfe against
Per not until the fifth, when' Krueger
singled and went to third on the out of
Peckinpaugh and MoKune. At this Junc
ture Cutahaw saved the day for Pernoll
by making a great running stab of Ben
Henderson's Une drive over second base.
Cutahaw made this catch, which seemed
Impossible, and the feat wu applauded
roundly after the fans had suddenly de
sisted . applauding Henderson for the
seeming safe hit.

In the lxth Inning the Beavers filled
the bases, with only on man out. but
Kuhn stood by and allowed the third
strike to be called on him. and Krusger
could net get the ball past Pernoll.
Chadbourne opened this Inning by get
tins; hit by a pitched ball, and Sheehan
singled to right. Ryan sacrificed, ad
vancing both runner, and Bill Rappa
hiked, fjlling up the sacks. Then Kuhn
fanned without trying and tke disposal
of Krueger ended Portland' chance.
The Oaks now have the series by a
majority of three out of Ave game)
played, and It la op to the Beavr to
win thla afternoon In order to break
even on the series at home. Wolverton
will delegate either Christian or Abies

one more. Jensen was invincible for
four innings, when three singles filled
the bases and Shea's homer gave Seat

and proved a puzzle.

Man, but Seems to Have Got
"False Alarms" in Pair of
BY HARRT B. SMITH. '
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12. (Spe
cial.) That Buddy Ryan is the hest
ball player In the Pacific Coast League,
the one chap who stands head and front
of all the men who have developed this
season. Is the opinion of experts who
have discussed the question. "Judge"
McCredie started the controversy when
he was in San Francisco last week by
remarking that Ryan was a wonder and
Jim McGulre, the Cleveland . scout
helped it along.
Ball players this year haven't de
veloped apparently as they did last
season, but if you. want to pick out
one chap as the best all around ball
player. Buddy Ryan Is the one you have
to name. There are few of the pitchers
who stick out as stars of any great
magnitude, but Ryan has been prog
ressing so consistently that you can't
but hand him the palm as the best of
them all. .
Of course, Ryan's batting is hla
strong point at the present time and
he compares favorably with Ty Cobb
of the American League, in a minor de
gree, naturally. Ryan, if he keeps up
his present lick, or anywhere near his
present lick, will be batting far and
beyond above the others who might
threaten his title. He is furthermore,
a student of the game, a good out
fielder and fast on the bases. All these
things have combined to put Ryan
where he is and San Francisco and Cali
fornia fans are as interested In watch
ing his progress as are the people of
New Players' Ability TooubtfuL
Has the San Francisco club drawn a
pair of lemons In the two outfielders,
Art Smith and Jo Holland? Nobody
knows as yet, but there Is a lurking
suspicion that these two chaps are not
all they were cracked up to be, on
paper. However, since they virtually
lead their league in hitting, they must
know how to land on the ball and a
little later In the game, there may be
better chance to tell what they can
As fielders pure and simple, . they
look like failures. Holland shows up
to better advantage than Smith as . a
sticker, but fairness requires the state
ment that they take a good swing on
the ball and may develop as soon a
they are a little better acauainted with
the pitchers in- the league.
The local, club nam t stopped with
outfielders. Tw new pitchers arrived
the first of the week. They are Fan
ning and Noyes, both from the Central
Association Galesburg and Ottumwa,
respectively. At this writing I can't
say anything about their ability, but
they have come to San Francisco with
good records, and if they can help the
Seals in the pitching department they.
may be able to make It warm for
somebody before the race Is over.'
They are tall rangy chaps, both' de
cidedly quiet, but as Long's staff of
twirlers is somewhat dilapidated, the
chances are that they will have plenty
of opportunity to exercise themselves.
The Seals are long on pitchers now
and any day wa may look for some de
creases In the force. Wizard Meikle Is
likely to be one of the first to go, al
though as Danny Long Is partial to
Meikle, he may hold him to see how
he shapes up next Spring In training
before finally turning htm loose.
O'Rourke Punished Enough.
The action of President Graham in
imposing a fine of 850 on Patsy
O'Rourke. the belligerent captain of
the Senators, and limiting his suspen
sion to Sunday, August 13, has caused
lot of argument. Some of the base
ball writers are of the opinion that
O'Rourke has not been sufficiently pun
ished for his misdeed In trying to strike
Umpire Hildebrand. Hildebrand, him
self, was partially responsible for ths
lenient action that was taken, declar
ing that he knew O'Rourke felt sorry
and that he did not believe he would
offend again. ,
Personally, I think that the punish
ment meted out to O'Rourke is suffl-
Hnnt tn nrftu(nt a repurrptti-A nH T
dont believe In going too hard on a
man. O Rourke has a family to sup
port and Is probably thoroughly im
pressed with the theory that rowdyism
will not go with the Coasters.
Ed Walter, president of the Oakland
team. Is off on hlsr honeymoon, the base
ball magnate and Oakland banker hav
ing married a well-known young lady
of his home city. Walter is on hla way
East, and while there purposes to com
bine business with pleasure by looking
up baseball players for next season.
The team certainly needs some men if
it Is to be considered up in the pennant
race, although it Is doubtful if any help
can be given the club this season-
According to gossip this week, wol
verton tried to make a deal some time
ago to trade Monte Pfyl and Lefty
Miller, both of whom were subsequent
ly released, along with Catcher Bunny
Pearce, for snortsiop ueimas, or tnn
Angels. Hen Berry, however, Wouldn t
listen to any such scheme and it fell
McCredie Loses Chance.
What a great chance Walter Mc
Credie overlooked earlier In the season.
He had a chance to trade Fanwell. who
was secured from Cleveland, for Spider
Baum, of the Senators. Baum -wasn't
going any too well and the Sacramento
club offered the proposition. But Mc
Credie refused to trade and now he is
sorry. Charlie Baum Is probably, the
greatest curve ball pitcher in the
league and Is considered by many of
the ball players as one of the headiest
men In the league. I guess Baum
wouldn't have been of considerable as
sistance to the Portland team.
Byram, the Princeton boy who is
with the Sacramento club. Is soon to
become a novelist, according to report.
He Is said to be engaged in the task
of writing a book that will soon be
ready for the printer. On Just what
topic, or along what lines, has not been
