work In harmony today and Koestner
was badly walloped until Burch went
In behind the bat In the third Inning
The frame was already lost, however,
and although Koestner steadied down
decidedly and in spite of two triples by
the Beavers, nothing could redeem iu
The loss of the game 'by the Beavers
must be charged to Koestner and it
was lost in the first two -innings. He
walked several of the Tigers, forcing
in one run in the second. Krueger
contributed to the disaster by letting
Lltschls single past In the fourth In
ning, when Brashear was on third.
Burch landed a pretty triple In the fifth
inning and Lindsay doubled in the
sixth, but neither advanced a base.
In the first Inning- after two men
were out McDonnell and Brashear
walked and Bayless singled. Litschl
then came across with a Blngle that
scored McDonnell and Brashear.
In the second Stewart and Carlisle
slnerled. Kane was lilt by a pitched ball
and McDonnell walked again, forcing

came in after Mahoney had caught Bay-
In the third Burch went in to catch
" for Portland. Burrell singled. Brown
was out. Rodgers to Rapps, Burrell tak

putting Burrell on third. Burrell scored
when Stewart was caught between first

Brashear scored in the fourth after
two men were out, on a base on balls,
singles by Bayless and Litschl, and the
assistance of Krueger, who let Litschl's
drive get away from him.
The Beavers got together in the
eighth. Koestner singled and scored
on Doane's triple. Lindsay Singled,

During his diamond career in tn

neapolis, then came back to the North

wound up his varied experiences of the

BT ROSCOE FAWCBTT.
Baseball pitchers have attained fame
by divers and sundry routes, but those
who have reached the highest pinnacle
of glory have done so through the con
secutive victory route.. Rube Mar
auard's 16th victory Friday for the
New York Nationals gives the famous
southpaw the laurels for the year, al
though Walter Johmon. of Washington,
gained great acclaim by his part in the
sensational Washington run oi 11
Marquard's victories have all been
cleancut. and save for the ten-inning
affair he finished last Wednesday, going
In at the eighth . hole with the score
a tie, have all been full-inning games.
A pitcher, of course,- must have all
the elements of luck with him to strike
this kind of a winning groove, but
Marquard's effective pitching has been
a real factor this season.
Wonderful Control Slews.
His record up to June 17 shows only
28 v walks,' one wild heave and only
one man hit by pitched ball and that
is wonderful control.
The New York Giants have had on
their list of twirlers more men In the
big win column than any other team
in the land. Keefe, Welch, Rusle,
Meekin, Mathewson, McGinnlty and
Marquard are, members of the organiza
tion. Marquard's 16 run is the modern
record, but the Rube has several old
time marks still to demolish.
Of major league records Timothy
Keefe holds the palm, for he made 19
consecutive . victories In 1888. Rad
bourne's great feat of winning 18
straight games In 18 days Is perhaps
the greatest ever performed. "Micky"
Welch, of the New York Giants, in 1885
had a record of 18 straight, but his
work is now almost forgotten.
The pitchers who have won over 12
games in succession in the major
leagues since 1882 are as follows:

Marquard started out with Canton In
the Central League in 1907, the same
place where Cy Young made his debut
17 years before. Cleveland let ' Mar
quard slip through Its hands to Indian
apolis that Fall and in mldseason of
1908. after a phenomenal burst of speed,
he was sold to New York for 811.000.
McGraw tried to change his style and
nearly ruined him in 1909 and he was
dubbed the "$11,000 Lemon" all around
the circuit. McGraw held on to him,
however, and put him In as a regular
string man In 1911, when he verified his
manager's confidence by leading the
National League pitchers with a per
centage of .779.

SEATTLE. June Z2. "(Special.) "I
am confident we shall get an even
break in Portland this coming week
said Fresldent Dugdale, "and I should
not be surprised if we scalped Nick
Williams' Colts five out of the eight
"The team Is going well in all de

I do not think they will be headed
Three New Mas on Team.
This, will be th second and last
trln of the Seattle club to Portland
this year. Since the boys were there,
undec the leadership of Jack Barry,
three new faces have been added to
the list, although two of them Hunky
Shaw and Lee Strait are well known
to the Portland fans. Brooks, f irst-
sacker, has never played In Portland
and his work will be watched with
interest, especially as he takes the
place formerly held by Barry. He Is a
much better fielder than the former
manager) and. while probably not as
good on the bases. Is a better hitter.
He has-not come up to his former
record with the stick, but when he
came to the Pacific Northwest he was
loaded with malaria, some oi wnicn
has been shaken out of his system, as
shown by the fact that he has gained
five Dounds. . Just now he looks like
a prizefighter who has met with a dis
tressing accident. He and Thompson
tried to occupy the .same point with
their heads, with the result that
Brooks got a peach of a black eye.
Double-Header on Today.
Seattle and Spokane will close the
present series tomorrow aiternoon
with the second double-header of the
present season on the Seattle grounds.
The chances are that Charlie Fuller
ton will work the first game of the
double-header against Spokane, which
will remove him from the sphere oi
conflict during the early stages of the
struggle between Seattle and. Port
land in Portland tnis coming wots.
The rejuvenation of the Seattle jC1ud,
which went from last to the top of
the Northwestern League in 19 days
after President Dugdale discharged
Manager Barry for poor judgment in
handling the team on the rieia, is tne
talk of the baseball world In this
section of the country.
Dngdale's Position Upheld
Dugdale repeatedly said that the ma
terial was there for a winning, team,
and in view of what has happened it. la
only fair that this should be recallea.
Barry's failure in Seattle was prin
cipally due to the fact that he did not
know how to handle his men. He
might have got through the season
had Slner been able to play second
base, but the team would not have
been as harmonious as it is unaer
Tealey Raymond. Raymond has shown
remarkably good judgment since ne
took the reins. '
The attendance in Seattle has picked
up amazingly during the past two
weeks and during that time the
weather has not favored the game.
Seattle has not only won consistently.
but has played lino oaii. a majority
of the contests have been of major
league caliber, much in contrast to the
uneven play that characterized the
progress of the early season.

Southpaw Girot,. late of the Beavers,
made his debut as a Tiger hunter yes
terday, and by virtue of his stellar
mound work. Colt clouting and Tacoma
mlscues, Portland won, 6-1, making It
four straight victories, four out of five
games for the series, and pulled the
visitors down to their percentage level
But for his erratic heave to third base
In the first Inning Glrot would have
been credited with a shutout. He al
lowed only five hits, two of them de
cidedly scratchy in the opening inning,
and strove valiantly and successfully
to overcome his usually disastrous
wlldness. He allowed only two passes,
and, barring the first Inning, permitted
only one Tiger to reach third base.
Charles Schmutz looked like a good
bet until the sixth Inning, hut his sup
port wobbled In that period, and two
Colts scored. This proved too much
for Charley's aplomb and In the next
round he was hammered for a triple,
a double and two singles, which were
converted into three runs.
The Tigers were lucky in the first.
With two gone Abbott and Neighbors
were credited with hits to Speas. the
first sacker falling to knock down the
ball cleanly In both instances. Abbott
kept on to third on Neighbor's blngle
and when Girot tossed wide to Kibble
In an effort to nip the runner, he trot
ted across the pan with the first run
of the game.
Mensor, the greatest little waiter In
the league, scored the Colt run In the
third Inning, tielng the score. He was
passed by Schmutz, went to second on
Speas' infield out. to third on Crulk
shank's single, and scored on Fries'
sacrifice fly to Abbott.-

went out, Morse to "Williams. Fries
taking third. Kibble scored Fries with,
a single in back of second, stole second,
took third when Nlll threw Coltrln's
grounder wild to first, end went on
home during the melee.
With one man out In the seventh
Speas tripled to left center aftd scored
on Crulkshank's single to left. Fries
grounded out. Harris doubled to left
center, Abbott and Lynch falling to
agree on who wan to go after the ball,
and Crulkshank scored. McDowell
scored Harris with a single to left, took
second on the throw to the plate and
third when Abbott's heave went to the
stand. Kibble grounded out to Nill.
Joe Williams, the new Tacoma first
sacker, made his first appearance, but
failed to shine. He could not hit the
ball safely and dropped the ball on
three occasions. However, two of the
tosses were wide and as Neighbors. Ab
bott and Nill were the only Tigers to
hit the ball "where they were'nt," he
cannot be accused of weakness at the
bat at this stage.
