k. Two spitballers battled for the great
er portion of two and one-quarter hours
yesterday, and the Oak tallend champs
triumphed because Charles Pruiett out
salivaedRoy Brown. Not all the Oak
players sat in on the revenge, however,
because the excess baggage was
banished off the bench early in the
game for ragging vociferously at a de
cision by Umpire Hayes.
Still, some satisfaction can be gleaned
even from the Arabics In the newspa
pers. So lamp this: Score Oakland 6
It was debut day for Brown a most
exasperating bow it must have been
for him, because his support resembled
that luxuriant delicatessen fruit called
Like little Gene Krann of v nirf-n
tymes. Brown was continually in trou-1
inrougn wuaness, and yet the
diminutive damp artist was responsible
for only two of the five runs chased
across In his Incumbency.
Hansen Then Goes In.
When the score became too lopsided
for much hope in the sixth Manager
McCredie hustled Brown to the guard
house and gave Elmer Hanson, another
youngster, a tryout.
Elmer yielded one run In his opening
frame, and then settled snd was not
troubled either In the eighth or ninth.
Aside from Pruiett's high-class box
work, the batting of Quintan and Mid
dleton, two of Devlin's southpaw slug
gers, featured the milling. Qulnlan hit
safely, the first four times at bat
against Brown. Middleton bagged three
hits and two walks.
These two rampaging horticulturists
garnered more of those old base swats
yesterday than the entire Portland out
fit herded together. Six hits was
Pruiett's skimpy allowance. It would
have been fortunate Indeed had Judge
Stevenson sentenced the Texan to life
imprisonment when he had him before
the bar of judgment the other day for
spitting shot at chorus ladies.
If Pruiett's aim with the lead pel
lets anywhere near approaches his
deadliness with the rubber-cored va
riety, bessemer tights will be sartorial-
apropos for stage attire when
the Oaks are In town hereafter.
Korea Solves Pruiett.
Korea was the only Bexver able to
puncture Pruiett's bombproof defense
with much success. And Korea was
largely responsible for the lone Port
land score. His sacrifice fly scored
Rodgers In the eighth inning, after
Bill had singled and ambled to third
on Ryan's two-bagger Into right field.
Scrambled into the Oaks' scoring was
some precarious baseball.
Devlin's men registered their rirst
score In the fourth inning, when Bobby
Davis dropped a fly back- of second
base. Ness was on second at the time
from a walk and Alexander's bunt.
Brown Invariably began each Inning
either by walking a man or allowing
Second Sack Left Vacant.
The Oaks scored two more in the
fifth, principally because nobody cov
ered second base on a made-to-order
double play. Brown's perfect peg
kept merrily on and a couple of base
runners followed trump.
Brown's only bad session was crowd
ed Into the sixth, when successive hits
by Pruiett. Quinlan, Murphy and Mid
dleton brought in two baserunners. A
remarkable line heave to home plate
by Kyan saved another honk of the
Without waiting f'- further carnage
l.cCredle marshaled Hanson into the
warming box an- Elmer entered the
box score in the seventh. AftT dis
posing of two men, Hanson walked
Alexander and Cook and scored him
with a two-bagger into center.
Series now stands two games for
Portland, one for the Oaks. West will
twirl today, opposing Prough or Ma
la rk ey.

made until the second half of the
eighth when, with two out, Venice
scored Its three runs. Up to that point.
Krtmer, the young Sacramento recruit
who was in the box for the visitors,
showed wonderful control, but he went
to pieces suddenly and allowed two
walks and two singles. The Venetians

If any plan is afoot I n the minne
leagues for desertion of organized base-
oau, me .raciric Coast League It not a
party to it. So says A. T. Baum. presi
dent, who is a Portland visitor from
San Francisco, thus spiking recent dis
patches from the East,
President Baum is authority for the
statement that the Pacific Coast League
nus no axes to grind and that it will
stick with the majors in their battle
against the Federal League.
"I have heard that the Southern and
the Western leagues are very much
dissatisfied." said the popular Coast
prexy, yesterday, prior to the Oakland
game. "But. not so the Coast. The
National commission has treated us
with extreme fairness and there would
be nothing to gain by allying ourselves
with the guerilla movement.
"Except in the two class A leagues,
the Western and Southern, there ought
not be any dissatisfaction, because the
lower minors are practically supported
by their sales and drafts to the majors.
There would be no such revenue should
they Jump the traces. The majors
would simply go out and prab' players
Just as the Federals have done."
The Western and Southern Leagues'
discontent had Its inception at the time
Class A A rating was granted the Pa
cific Coast, International and Ameri
can Association, a couple of years ago.
By granting a higher classification
to these three leagues, the Western and
Southern were left as the only Class A
leagues. The rub comes in the system
of drafting. Class AA clubs get 82500
for their drafts and Class A club only
81500, and, moreover. Class AA's can
now levy upon Class A teams not
touched by the majors.
Walter McCredle, for instance, got
"Dutch" Kores by drafting him from
Des Moines, of the Western League, in
the Fall of 1912.
Whether the war spirit Is us strong
as reported, only time will demonstrate,
but the chances are the two blustering
minors will stick with the National
Association In preference to aligning
themselves with the experimental Fed
erals. Art Krueger. ex-Portland gardener,
thinks far lebs of Portland than Port
land thought of him last year.
Since jumping the Angels for the
Kansas city Federals. Romeo has
turned propnet, and his horoscoplng
eliows the poor Portland Coast club in
Art says Chadbourne is a far bet
ter ballplayer than Buddy Ryan and
further states that Mac's pitching
corps is all stot to pieces and every
thing gone to "demnltion."
Other gems out of Art's pipe are:
Venice to win the pennant with ease.
Oakland to be the "darkhorse," as
the Oaks have the best pitching staff
ever assembled in the Coast League.
Los Angeles and San Francisco to be
very weak and Sacramento also poor
owing to loss of Kenworthy, whom
Art characterizes as "the best player
in the Coast League last year."
All three of last year's Portland
pitchers, now in the majors, have had
their championship tryouts, Krapp with
the Buffalo Feds. Bill James with the
St, Louis Americans, and Rip Hagerman
with Cleveland, and Hagerman is the
only one who has not shown much.
Bill James was sent in against De
troit in the twelfth Inning Wednesday,
with two on the bags and three runs
were made off him by virtue of Cobb's
triple. Crawford's single and V'etsch's
sacrifice fly. James came back the
next day, however, and defeated De
troit. 8 to 5.
Krapp, meanwhile, starred for Buf
falo as relief pitcher in the opening
game at Baltimore. The Rubber held
his opponents runless for five in
nings. Hagerman had his opportunity with
the Naps Friday against Chicago and
was driven from the box in the sixth
inning. In five frames he allowed
seven hits, good for five runs, two of
the hits being homers by Collins and
Lord, respectively. Rip walked four -men
and struck out one.
Chicago won. 6 to 5.
GAMBLING MUST STOP BAUM
President of Coast League Offers
llewards for Convictions.
After a quiet investigation. A. T.
Baum. president of the Pacific Coast
League, yesterday Issued a statement
to the effect that gambling on the ball
games Is highly prevalent In Portland.
To check the evil he offers 1100 re
ward for the arrest and conviction of
each and every baseball gambler.
President Baum leaves tonight fof
San Francisco. His statement follows:
"Gambling on baseball games must
stop. After a week's Investigation.
I am convinced that there is more
open betting on baseball in Portland
than in any other city in the league.
The Pacific Coast League st-iids ready
to fight this great evil to a finish.
"Women and young boys are betting
on baseball In this city. Certain busi
ness places solicit betting for the few
cents commission obtained.
"My Investigators have furnished me
with names, not only of places where
betting is going on. but names of bet
tors. These names will be used, if
necessary, without regard to whom
may be hurt. I am sure we have the
support of all real lovers of the game,
those who must realize that baseball
Is the one professional sport that has
not been tainted by gambling and
which must be kept clean.
"I purpose keeping in close touch
with the situation and have the back
ing of the directors of the leaguo to
make this a permanent fight regardless
"I offer a standing reward of 1100
for the arrest and conviction of any
person guilty of gambling on baseball,
and a reward of S 15 for the arrest and
conviction of any person guilty of
handling bets on baseball for com
