The American Giants. Chicago's negro
team of major league caliber, defeated
the Portland Colts yesterday afternoon.
but have Colt mtscues rather than
Giant twirling and batting prowess to
thank for the victory before 3500 peo
ple at Portland's Initial professional
dlnmond struggle of 1911.
The Colts erred nve times. This
medley of bobbles, concentrated at criti
cal moments, enabled the black chaps,
who took four In five games from the
Beavers, to register a victory In the
nrst tussle of the two-game series with
the Northwestern Leaguers. The Colts
scored nine hits against seven for the
tourists, and In addition hammered the
ball with such gusto that a seventh
Inning rally drove the gigantic Gate
wood from the mound, forced Johnson,
a spitbull artist. Into the breach, and
Lindsay out on the warming-up line.
Nick Williams' team looks good.
They displayed a thinking ability far
superior to the 112 squad, and for a
team labelled "sensational fielder but
weak batter" showed a nice aptitude
at hitting the ball.
Kid Mohler. one of the shining lights
of the game, and the man who makes
that Colt Intleid look superlatively
good, might have sent the same into
extra Innings or paved the way for
victory had he taken a chance in the
Williams used 13 men In the game.
Gtrot pitched for Ave innings, during
which time six runs and six hits were
scored. Carl Mays allowed only one
hit in the remaining five periods. Ue

hand and overhand curves and nice
speed, Gnlgni replaced Williams at
first. Culler went to second snd Bllsr

the negroes Johnson replaced Vlatewood
In the seventh inning.
The game today starts at 2 SO o'clock.

Jerry KUdinger. Fielder Jones' new
umpire, worked behind the plate In yes
terday's game, and while the excited
crowd hooted at several of his oeclsions,
the lanky chap made good. He. as well
as the other umpires, will use the one
arm system of indicating strikes, as
was In vogue in the circuit last year.
In addition to a record crowd of
negro rooters snd a surprising num
ber of Portland fans at the game nearly
100 soldiers were over from Vancouver
to see the Glnnts In action. The Giants
experienced no trouble in beating the
soldiers at Vancouver last week.
They've started to rag at Nick Wll
lisma already. After driving out two
hits some of the fans welcomed the
Injection of Gulgnl Into the fray at
first base. Gulgnl scored a run vith a
long sacrifice fly to center the first
time up. but after that his stlckwork
was weak. However, he handles him
self like a real player, and they say
he plays any position in the tnneld or
outnekl with equal facility.
The Colts hsd a chance to score In
the second Inning when men were on
second and third with no outs. Harris
grounded out and Glrvt and Bancroft

Prior to April Fool day Portland,
Venice and Sacramento appeared to
have the strongest teams.
Sacramento had been touted as pos

corps in the league, but the Senators,
from all appearances, can be scratched
off the list of contenders. Venice has
gotten off to a rather poorer start than
expected, while the Oaks and Angels
appear to be very strong. Kane s and
Brashear's injuries have hurt Venice.
