- The jinx and the fetish are said to
b important elements in baaebalL Per-
haps the faot that "Speck" Harkness
paid a 30 flne yesterday for speeding
his automobile in -no manner Incited
the uprising. Perhaps it did. But any
way, the Sacramento Senators pounded
Harkness out of the box in less than
two innings, put Southpaw Suter te
the bad in four more and then romped
home easy victors over Portland . by
the elaborate score or 12 to 3.
And once again we ask: "Are the
Senator destined to make history re
peat, by unloading three losses and
then three victories for the second con
secutive time? "A victory today will
put a carbon copV on their record of
May. The series stands three games
for Portland, two for bacramento.
Game iV'n la Second.
The Irish are said to export the
most efficient ballplayers and police
men. But yesterday the only non
Rmerald Islander on the entire team
touched the fuse. "Rudy" Schwenk.
the big spitballer, went to bat in the
second inning with two men on the
sacks and poled out a home run over
the right wall, scored three, and started
a rally that netted six runs, and cinched
Harkness was derricked . when Shinn.
the next man up, -doubled to left, but
singles by Lewis and Sheehan and a
double by O'Rourke, shoved three more
across on Suter. The visitors added
two more in the third Inning on a walk,
a double steal home by Irelan, a boot
and several other idiosyncrasies of for
tune, and after two or three terrific
;louts in the fifth Suter was sent to
the showerbaths In favor of Gregg.
Two runs already had scampered
across on Cheek's single and doubles by
Schwenk and Lewis, but Just for sport
O'Rourke banged out his second two
bagger as first man up against Gregg,
and tallied two more. Then they
.rested, for Gregg pitched good ball to
Faaa Leave Early.
After reading these lines you have
likely formed an opinion of just what
brand of a "contest" It was. And your
opinion undoubtedly coincides with that
held by 2000 fans, many of whom left
after the fifth stanza.
As is quite usual in slugging affrays,
miscues were numerous, and Fitzgerald,
l recruit outfielder playing In Krueger's
place, got so badly balled up aa to try
to score from first on a short fly to
right field. Only one was out at the
time not two as he supposed so of
course the youngster was promptly
doubled at first. He showed up well
with the bat, securing two hits, and
partially atonedfor this. Ihe "prize"
boner of the season.
To register 12 runs on 12 hits Is quite
a feat, but to tally three runs on 12
hits is going to the other extreme.
Schwenk held the locals at his mercy,
and whenever he found the going
bumpy, he promptly applied the brake.
Timely hits by Rodgers and Chad
bourne, both of whom put forth their
best endeavors to ward off disaster,
gave the Beavers their three tallies,
one in the third and two in the sev
enth. Hlttlag af Sckwenk Feature.
For Sacramento Schwenk and Lewis
were the batting cards. This fellow
Schwenk was retained by Louisville
one season as a pinch hitter and
finished with an average of .313. Yes
terday he secured a homer, a double
and a single and with a little luck
would have had another slzzler which
Suter deflected Just enough to permit
of fast fielding by Bancroft. The score:

Notes of the Game.
Klawltter won from the Senators in the
ninth Inning rally Wednesday and likely
will be sent back at them today unless Hark
ness la given another chance. Gllllgan prob
ably will hurl for Van Burets.
Krueger was ill eaterday so Doane went
over to center and Fltxgerald occupied
Doane's place In right. loane pulled off
one remarkable catch. Lewis, for the vls't
ors. also made a dandy running catch.
Tommy Sheehan rerlred Doane in tha sec
ond Inning by a nifty one-hand catch and
throw. Sheehan has been a moat consistent
performer all week.
Van Buren tired of the slugging match in
the seventh Inning and gave GUligan a
chance to gain experience in the outfield.
Fitzgerald is a speedy little fellow and
appears to be a good sticker. At Cbehalis
he secured two hits and rang up a conple
yesterday. Schwenk tried to- slip a third
strike over on him on one occasion and he
promptly Jabbed out a single.
Miller waa out of tha game as a result of
an Injured ankle, and Heiater held down first
Dave Gregg finished the afternoon with a
batting average of .500. His first effort was
a two-bagger up against, the right-field
fence. . . ,
"Speck" Harkness was thoroughly tamed
by the courts. He didn't throw a ball over
the prescribed 10 miles an hour during his
occupancy of the mound.

Umpiring is better than playing; at
least I have found it so. The average
fan looks pityingly at an umpire, and
remarks at every opportunity: "Say,

professional baseball for ten years be
fore taking up umpiring this season,
and I like umpiring better than playing.
If a prospective umpire should ask
my advice, in addition to telling him
to keep his eyes open and his mouth
shut, I should advise definite Judgment
on all plays. An umpire, who makes a
wavering decision on a close play, lays
himself open to contempt by both play
ers and -fans. An umpire makes mis
takes. Just like a player, but it doesn't
do any good to stop and figure awhile
before making a decision, for, except
tn a few cases, first Judgment is best,
and It certainly gives out a better im

legitimate cases. Is bad for an umpire,
and bad for the game. A player is not

it was a sin to start mm.
Pat Eastley, oh the other hand, was
in great form. The four hits which
were garnered by the home talent were
well scattered so the Colts were never
in danger. The lone run made by the
Tigers came in the fourth, while the
Colts confined their scoring to the
first, second, third, fourth and fifth in
nings. The second game showed what a team
can do when It comes from behind
with a rush. The Tigers thought they
had the contest on Ice after the third
inning, three runs having been harvest
ed In the fifth Portland shoved one
across, but did not look dangerous. The
eighth, however, saw Meikle go to
pieces and when the the carnage was
over the Colts had a good lead,whtch
was cinched into a victory in the en
Two Games Today.
The victories of the Colts today were
both clean cut, but the first might have
at least been made an interesting con
test had Hunt retired earlier in the con
test. .President Watklns was consider
ably peeved over the strategy used by
Mike Lynch and he was not bashful in
saying so. - . i ' " . ..
The teams will meet in two contests
