SAN JOSE STATE LEAGUE
NINE DEFEATS ALAMEDA
Scoring of Single Run Ends
Game in Eleventh
Inning
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE CALL
SAN JOSE, April 7.— The San Jose
State League baseball team defeated
Alameda this afternoon in an eleven
inning contest, the .result of which
hung upon two decisions by Umpire Ja
cobs. The score was Ito 0. The soggy
condition of the new field caused the
I dearth of tallies, as long hits went for
' only a base, the ball sticking ln the
I loam where It struck.
Hal Chase, who made his last ap
pearance here for the season, and Par
ker of the Alameda teem were the
stars of the day. The former hit the
ball when the vi6iting pitcher put It
. near the plate and the latter fielded in
phenomenal style. A --slight Injury
which Chase received ln last Sunday's
game caused him still to limp..
Tn the. eleventh Inning Feeney ; was
1 called out at third on a close play by
Tyson to Ryan and the crowd hooted.
: Again, in the same "Inning. Ean Jose
was given the winning run on a foul
called safe, and the crowd smiled. The
game was witnessed by 2700 fans. The
score:

San Francisco and Portland Break Even on Diamond
Wheeler Touched for Numerous
Hits in Afternoon Game
By W. a.-Slattery
The Seals had enough of the left- 1
over victorious spirit to put it on the
Beavexs when the teams made their
bow to the Oakland fans yesterday
morning, but the afternoon mlxup be
fore a house that was overflowing was
a delusion, a snare, aa imposition and
a joke to the admirers of the native
! talent who were rooting for San Fran
cisoo. Never was the score a tie. The
Beavers got in right during the second
and third spasms, and after that they
refused to be headed. '
Everyone agreed that It was too bad
for Gleason's men.' With such a turn
out, the least that might have been ex-,
pected was a victory for the home toss
ers. It may have been stage fright
that was responsible for Portland's
runs, but a close scrutiny of the score
will show that the Beavers won be
cause they took many a long and time
ly ride on the best that GeorgleWheeler
was able to hurl at the piste.
If the crowds in the future class with
yesterday's, the local magnates will be
forced to lease the whole block. Thirty
minutes before the game was. started
the stand and bleachers had the "move
on" signs out and a rope was stretched
along the fence, where fully 2500 per
sons lined up. It is estimated that 10,
000 fans saw the game.
TXCKKT PASSERS OVERWORKED
The Jam was so great that. Manager
Gleason caused the game to be delayed
fifteen minutes, in order that the tardy
fans might be accommodated. But even
this did not suit. Those inside were
clamoring for the cry of "Play ball!"
while thousands who were unable to
gain admission to the grounds grum- !
bled because the ticket sellers were i
unable to pass out the pasteboards fast
enough. /
_ The Seals rushed on to the field with
seemingly an overstock of real pepper
when the bell rang.* They whisked the
ball around in practice like a flock of
two-time pennant. winners. There was
confidence ln the demeanor of each
man; In fact, the entire, team made the
play so strong that theAnajority of the
spectators conceded them the game be
fore the*. first ball had been pitched.
After that it was different. \u25a0 For
some reason the local sluggers 'found
the offerings of the lengthy Mr. Groom,
a new recruit, so puzzling that most of
them went the pop fly route or else
dispatched simple little grounders that
the Portland lnflelders \ seemed accus
tomed to eat for breakfast every morn
ing.
WHEELER THE PALL GUT
And the best George Wheeler had
was ' cake for; the Beavers. To every
field they slapped the twisters of the
veteran. , Time / and time : agraln he
would switch the cut . and change the
brand, but this did no v good. In " all
thirteen cafe drives were i culled- from
Wheelers. variety, and but for a little
bad luck and some sharp fielding on
the part of hla supporters the visitors
would have had about fourteen Instead
of four. runs. .
Many a tried and true, member of
the San Francisco. layout came up smil
ingly; to baV with" the Racks decorated
and on every occasion save one.it was
either; a strikeout, a fly or a grounder
that could not possibly produce a run.
This occurred so - often that the fans
finally got used to it and expected noth-,
Ing better as the game progressed. .
The one man whom the rooters would
be willing to name a street for. was Bill
Morlarlty. He was the lad with the hit
yesterday,' but his efforts produced only
one v run,' '<. though "they were noble
enough for: several, the pro
gress .of the morning battle V Bill
knocked : the \u25a0 ball out of ' the ' lot, and
out of . four . chances with the club In
the • afternoon . contest j' t he * swung
through with ; a trio ; of '\u25a0 doubles, i:;
The i Beavers "• let the - first inning go
by without doing «ny , damage,; but Sta
ton opened . up -, the . second with a safe
drive and Kane bunted him on" his way.
Carson, got a smack > in the slats and
while the crowd was .watching him re
cover ; from ; the" accident « Lovett \ smote

ton registering the' first ace . f or "; Port

BEATERS , CINCH , ANOTHER
"In the' third Lovett lined one at Mori
arlty and kept on running .to f second
when the shortstop heaved the leather
wide fof I Its mark.-; f Casey.i laid /down; a
sacrifice and' "Cap" McCreedie produced
the wallop . that added run ,i No.*i 2 rto
the credit ofhis flock.; In the sixth and

TJdJJ] BAST JFR&NGIECO \u25a0MXL'b'i MONDAY^ .XPRHi 8, 19C77.
I thlrd^. '.'With Street and Wheeler: on
first and second and tyro in the cellar.
Kid Mohler. went after a high one after
two strikes had been called, and so. the
chance was lost. Street had the same
chance In the sixth round, which
Moriarity opened with a double, but,
naturally,- he did the same as his cap
tain. After this, the supporters of the
home team began, to realize that Port
land would be compelled to win the
gams unless Mr. Groom broke his arm
or pitched with his eyes closed. '
Moriarity brought home the only run
ln the seventh. Spencer managed to
play- for a pass and' advanced on'Moh
ler*s" out. |N obody " expected ; that the
new shortstop had -\u25a0 another double
sacker | stowed away,. in his | magic -bat."
but he was there nevertheless and man
aged to save the Seals from a thorough
coating of the white -liquid.' '\u25a0'\u25a0 I :- •-:.
\u25a0 Though the entire. Portland . team
played a far better game than on the
opening day, , the credit should be cut
and trimmed to give young Groom .the
major portion. 1 . -It» was his curves that
kept the Seals off the bases ln virtually
every Inning, though the willing fans
did the best they ~ could to ,; ruffle, the
youngster by saying things that only
a baseball rooter can say when he feels
like talking. .
MORNING GAMB CLOSE
The morning game was full of fight
and rough and tumble baseball, apd
belonged to either , team for. a: hit at
many stages. The Seals took the lead
in the first Inning, holding It until the
fifth, when , the Beavers broke ; in: with
three, thus heading" the* procession by
one run.
'\u25a0 Moriarity won a \u25a0 home for himself
in Oakland when he landed on 1 , a ; fast
one in the next; period ,and "dispatched
it on an excursion over the left-field
fence. . It. sure was the hit that the
team. needed. It had the effect of ! in«.
1 spiring the rest, of- the v flock -with *the
spirit of victory, so, they 'promptly got
together in tKe\ seventh' and, hammered
in another : run-^-just ""enough to ; keep
ahead for the remainder of thegame,
for Portland was never there again.

Baseball Notes
Wheeler had control, but nothing
else save a glove.
• McCreedie and Quick were the only
men fleet- footed enough to steal bases.
Both Street and Carson ' winged 'em
down to second In good form; hence
many runners , were caught.

looked better, for t they j were all

Oakland Makes It Two Straight
in the Home of the Angels
Special XMspatch to The Call
! LOS AKOELES, April 7«— Oakland »,
Los - Angeles 1. The reason for this
score, as stated in the logbook, is that
Heine Heitmuller, the Berkeley b"by
, wonder, tried to knock, the- left-field
\ fence down .with a swipe in ; the sixth
! inning, and when Carlisle went after
I the ; ball It hft him ln \ seven different
places on a ; three -cushion attempt
twice around the table. It caught him
on the knee, after. bounding back from
the fence, then it collided with a rock,
and, after kissing off. his left eye, It
rolled to the fence and Carlisle finally
snared it. Right after this local calam
ity Truck Eagan lined out ft high, shot
over short • that Pelmas \ just managed
to knock down. x This .was all, for two
runs rolled in and the game was really
over. , ; .
The day was a great one for local
baseball, for the. weather .was "delight
ful and more than. 5000 persons crowd
ed into the grounds tb see ' the sport.
There was; a, lot -of fast playing," some
bad .errors and good : pitching and the
enthusiasm was of the old-time order.
JINKS ON BERGEMAX
i • Bergeman I pitched ;:\u25a0 for Los Angeles
and; Randolph, for .the. Oaks. It Is said
that this .was the first time Randy had
ever defeated the locals, while Berge
man has never yet won from Oakland.
The "suburbanites have the jinks on
him In : some way. The . pitching was
too good to provide^ much real sport,

said, .were .unfortunately , in a state ' of

reditary; causes.. - ,: .
: There \u25a0 are i men i who, because of pe

and for this reason the fans were kept
nervous as to the outcome. What
might have, been the best thing la years
was stopped by Bernard falling down
at first base in the first inning and
thereby robbing. himself of what would
have been a home run -inside the
grounds. As it was. he reached third
base on the hit.. . .
The game was won and lost ln the
sixth Inning, . and In that - spasm the
locals created. big enthusiasm by mak
ing one run. For the Oaks, Jim Smith
was an easy out at first on a bounce
to the pitcher,, and then Bergeman
soaked Van Haltren with the ball. The
next minute Heitmuller. tore off a line
shot past third base that hit Van Hal
tren on ; third, and \ while Carlisle was
having a boxing match with the ball
and the. left. ; fence, vVan.;. scored and
Helt landed: on • third. " Heine easily
scored .when Truck. Eagan -hit a liner
over Delmas. who managed to knock
It down. These runs came in less time
than It takes to write them down.
ONE ANGEIi GETS AROUND
The locals came right back in their
half of the same Inning ,with their only
run. After : Bernard was out Carlisle
drew a pass, ran to third on Brashear*s
hit to center and scored when Van
Haltren let It get past him.
Neither of the teams had a chance
after the sixth . round, for a double
play stopped Oakland's hope of a run
ln the seventh and Los Angeles', chances
were knocked in both the seventh and
ninth by double plays from the out
field to first base. The score:

FIGHT PROMOTERS AWAIT
ACTION OF SUPERVISORS
Attitude of Board Toward
the Game Will Be
Shown Today
ByR. A. Smyth
The attitude" of the Supervisors on
the question of prize fight permits will
be reflected ln the action they take at
their meeting today on the many ap
plications before them. It is Intimated
that no 'permit will be issued for a
twenty-round fight this month, and
that permits for the four-round shows
will be doled out sparingly. to men who
have not figured in this ; branch of the
game recently. . ' '
The Manhattan Club Is advertising
its four-round card for next Friday
night, but those who claim to be In
formed of the situation say the club
will not be able to obtain the required
permit. The Shasta Club, which Is
managed by Gregory Mitchell, is said
to be ln line to receive the coveted
plum. Alex Greggains is again on the
job, and it Is Intimated that the San
Francisco Athletic Club, which he ran
successfully for years, will be back
in the lists soon with a • regular ex
hibition every month.
The Impression prevails that the ad
ministration men who have been ob
taining all the permits they could use
for some time past are to be side
tracked and others are to be given a
chance at the profitable business.
Among the two score of applications
before the Supervisors are said to be
some repeaters, backed by men now ln
the game, who do not want.. to b«
crowded out of a profitable field.
It is understood that the Fight Trust,
which has . helped unmake so many
reputations, has been reorganized, this
time with three members,' Instead of
the quartet which composed It last
year. Willis Britt is missing when the
roll Is called, and his voice will no
longer be heard ln the councils of the
trust If Its present organization can
be maintained. It has been subjected
to such a heavy crossfire recently that
If it weathers the battle It will show
great powers of reslstence.
SACRAMENTO FOOTBALL
MEN LOSE BY DEFAULT
OAKLAND, April 7.— Although only
in the nature of a practice same, the
football contest. between the Vampires
and a mixed eleven this afternoon at
Freeman's Park was brimful • of Inter
est. The Vampires came out -on the
right end of a 3-to-l score, but the

In the semifinal of the cup competition,
but on account of Inadequate- train ar
rangements only three of the Senators '
— Falk, Thorp and Forbes — put In an
appearance. As a result of their fail
ure" to be on hand, the .Sacramentos
forfeited the game, as the only reason
they assigned for. not making 1 the trip
/was* that they could not come and re
turn the same day. At a meeting of -
the association held immediately after
the game it was decided that the final
between the Hornets and .Vampires
should be played next Sunday at Free
man's Park. \u25a0 .'. *\u0084 -. \u25a0'
* In today's game Robertson •of thw
Vampires was about three parts of the
whole show, and his little foot was the
propelling, force •to all the .Vamps"
goals. Peterson and Scott also were
conspicuous with good work, and Mc-
Farlane In goal played his usual high
class game. For the combined eleven
Waeber. Anderson, Petrie and McKler
