Score Is Tied Several Times ßunched
Hits Off Brackenridge Finally
Bring In Winning Run
for Dillon's Band
Los Angeles 4, Vernon 3
After battling strenuously for eleven
Innings ln Thursday's hot session, the
Angels and the Vernonites came right
back with another of those extra In
ning scrambled affairs yesterday at
. Chutes park. It was one of the weird
est baseball games the champions and
the Subarbanltes have either together
or with other teams exhibited on the
local grounds this season. After see
sawing back and forth for eleven in
nings, three singles, betwixt which was
sandwiched a sacrifice, brought in the
•winning tally fer the Angel brigade,
but the fans saw a pretty battle be
fore the end came, and again the game
cut into the fans' dinner hour, though
they minded not a bit.
In the last two days there has been
sufficient of the sensational to pack a
circus for a week's performances. Um
pire McGreevy found it necessary to
sprinkle a few fines around in Thurs
day's game, and when Bertram Del
mas conceived it his duty to emit a
howl over a decision at second in the
game yesterday, McGreevy's long tried
patience burst Its bounds and he soaked
the little shortstop a ten spot, and
tossed him on the bench for pert re
marks. However, Bert can easily be
forgiven for this offense, for he merely
indulged In a few complimentary re
marks and, having said his little
speech, closed up like a clam. Del sel
dom hollers; ln fact, it is not within
memory that he has been In trouble
with an umpire for a year.
Score Tied Often
That score was tied so often and
then distanced by one length that the
fans really lost track, and had to watch
the score board to find out how the
teams stood. One dinky run came in at
a time, and when they were all through
there wasn't an awful lot to look at, at
that. Again, as in Thursday's play, j
bunched hits proved the salvation of
the champions and the downfall of
Pitcher Brackenbridge of Vernon. De
spite that, the Vernonites kept at the
Dillon crew with such dogged persist
ence that they finally forced Dillon to
replace Koestner with Nagle ln the
eighth, they could never hit when on
bases, and, as has happened times with
out number previously this season, this
was what lost them the game. Koest
ner allowed only five hits in the eight
Innings he lasted, and these were scat
tered into as many Innings. But he
walked eight men, hit another with a
pitched ball, and was accountable for a
wild pitch. Evidently his arm is not
yet right.
Sensations Numerous
It would take a Swiss Family Robin
son narrative to tell the detailed his
tory of the runs of the game. Each
inning was bound to bring some kind
of sensation, and it will be left to the
Imagination of the fans what happened
in the way of fielding and batting.
Those who weren't there really don't
deserve to find out unless some good
reason can be brought up, and those
who were there can select out of the
maze of plays and mlsplays something
of the manner ln which things drifted
along through two hours and fifteen
Vernon scored first, when Stovall
scooted over on a "hit by pitcher," a
single by Bernie Bernard, and Eagan's
infield hit. The Angels came right
back In the second, Smith scoring when
Coy let Howard's single go through
to the right field fence.
Eleventh Is Final
Thereafter the battle waged back
and forth, sometimes the advantage
lying with the Vernonites and again
shifting to the Champs. Three times
the tallies were tied, and both Hap and
Dillon threw up their hands when
Vernon batted In the run which finally
made it three all In the ninth. In the
tenth both teams were given round
goose eggs in hitting and scoring. In
the eleventh the Champions assumed
control of matters again, and on
Geordie Wheeler's single Infield, Smith's
sacrifice and Howard's single, Whee
ler was shoved to third. With one out,
It looked like a sure score. Orendorff
pounded out a right field hit, which
brought Wheeler over the pan. The
Hoganltes could not get near first
base, Bernard popping the side out to
Daley. - The results:

Notes of the Game
Three straight for the Angels. This
looks like real business to the fans.
Of course the Beavers and the Seals
' had to win Just to keep up with things,
and to spite the Angel boys. Never
mind, some day they will lose when the
Angels are winning.
I "Sweep the series." That's all Uncle
Angel Second Baseman Seems
to Have Recovered Batting Eye

Frank Dillon and Henry Berry are
dreaming, eating, living nowadays. It's
a mighty good start in the right di
rection. %
Truck Eagan's beautiful assist In the
; third Inning, when he ran over behind
the pitcher, leaped Into the air,
brought down a bounder and threw
Godwin and the side out while still
[ In the air, was roundly applauded by
the fans.
Wheeler was sent to short when Del- |
mas was retired from the game and 1
Ivan Howard was placed at second.
It looks as if Howard had recovered |
his batting lamp. Yesterday he made
the first hit In twenty-two times at I
the plate, but kept up when he finally ;
got away from the post, making three j
spanking singles during the day. They
counted largely In the scoring.
Koestner started off in wild fashion, j
but gradually steadied down until the 1
eighth, when he went bad and was re- '
lieved by Nagle. Lengthy Walter was j ■
never In better form, and pitched a -
steady winning contest. However, as
the Angels were ahead when Koestner
was sent to the bench, he will get the
credit for the victory, which shows how
'much a pitcher's game average tells of
his performances.
The Godwin-Howard-Orendorff trio
worked a beautiful play in the third,
catching Bernie Bernard at the plate ;
on the throw in of a long hit.
Brackenridge got an easy assist in a j
novel manner. Smith banged the ball j
straight toward him on a grounder, and ! (
Brack stuck his foot in the way, the
ball bouncing to Eagan, who was thus
enabled to throw the runner out.
Haley and his coacher made a laugh- :
able mistake ln the sixth. Coy hit a !
high single to Beall, and Haley ran to
second, but started back, evidently in
the belief that Beall had caught the
ball. He was nailed at second.
Henry Berry received word from J. |
Cal Ewing, ' president of the Coast
league, that Umpire McGreevy is as
signed to Los Angeles for another week. ,
This is good news, for Mac's methods
of handling the field in a masterly
manner have made a hit with the lov
ers of clean baseball. More power to j
you, McGreevy.

Baum was clouted for a total of four

most any game. Griffin was in line

men down to four small hits, all of
which were secured in the last three

BIG LEAGUERS are not satisfied
with their gleanings from the
Coasters' fold. In the last week
Henry Berry of the Angels has re
ceived a half do_.cn offers from the va
rious teams In the two major organ
izations looking toward the purchase
of several of his good men. Doubtless
the other teams in the league also have
received similar feelers, but It. is noted
that more attention has been given by
the scouts to the- Angels than to any
other team in the league, probably for
the very good reason that in the line
up of the champions are contained
more promising youngsters.
Not content with annexing Koestner
for delivery after the season is ended,
the majors are now after three Others
of the men at present drawing down
salaries on the champions' payroll. The
most prominent of these is Franzel
Hosp, the clever little Dutchman whom
wise critics place in the top ranks of
the pitchers of the Coast league. Hosp
is a methodical, hard-working pitcher,
with nothing of the sensational in his
makeup. But he has proved a grand
heaver, and the scouts have not failed
to take notice of this fact. He prob
ably will be sold to an eastern team
before the season closes.
Bert Delmas, the Angel shortstop,
litis come under notice of the eastern
ers also, and they think so well of him
that several good offers already have
been received. However, Berry will
take a good. long think before ho
parts with the boy who possesses the
best throwing arm of any shortstop ln
the league.
Orendorff, the regular ctacher, has
been spotted. He has been handling
the position so well that his work has
spread abroad, and the third of the
trio undoubtedly will be offered a good
chance in the east.
"But no Immediate delivery for me,"
says Berry. "I want my players to
finish out the season, and that is the
only basis on which I will consider a
From clever little Jimmy Austin at
San Diego, where he is training for his
fight with Red Corbett. a beach-town
scrapper, comes a newsy little letter
which his friends may be glad to read.
It runs as follows: "Sporting editor,
The Herald: Just a line to tell you
about my bout here with Red Corbett
next Monday night. I am working
hard for the battle, as Corbett has
every advantage of weight and strength.
But I think I have a good chance to

all to the worst of it in weight,- as
Corbett is to make 112 pounds, and I

George Blake did not meet with the

so it seems that I will have to take
chances with a local man, but I think
there will be no trouble over that.

crowd is attending my dally workouts.

look to win inside of the twenty rounds.
Yours, as always, JIMMY AUSTIN,
"106-pound champion of the Pacific

After the many flattering tributes
paid to the sportsmanship of the win
ning American team in the Interna
tional polo cup-series by so many Eng
lish newspapers, the following explana
tion of the victory by the London
Graphic seems entirely uncalled for:
•'As in all sports the Americans take
up, they have practiced and played and
laid themselves out for just this one
thing. With money, time and deter
mination at their backs, they have se
cured the pick of «he ponies, worked
with a professional trainer, and made
themselves well nigh perfect. This is
ten quite the attitude of the English
man toward sport. But It Is clearly the
way to win 'pots.'" :
The Americans went Into that polo
tournament with the zeal and enthusi
asm which characterizes them In every
branch of sport In which they take
part, and with a determination to win
by every fair means. The stories of
the contest written by English sport
ing experts give the Americans credit
for outplaying their rivals in every
point of the game, especial mention be
ing made of the vastly superior team
work which proved such a deciding
factor In the final result. Not the
slightest shadow of criticism for un
gentlemanly tactics was contained In
the accounts of the struggles.
The members of the Meadowbrook
team cared nothing for the cup Itself;
It was what lt represented that they
were after.
The Graphic calls attention to the
fact that the methods employed by the
Americans are different from those In
vogue with Englishmen. It would be
Interesting to see a code ef rules pro
mulgated by the London paper on the
proper way In which to train for a
contest and the course to be pursued ln
actual play. '
From a gifted eastern critic's pen:
"What queer mortals these fighters
be. Here comes Sam Langford with
a proposition to fight Sailor Burke for
Jack McAullffe on the night of the
reopening of the Marathon A. C. Jack
has secured the old sea dog and the
bone crusher to start .the ball a-rolllng.
Here's the joke: Sam will flght Burke,
and it might be a great mix-up at
that, for a few hundred dollars, yet
after all his screeching about a black
man's chances he refused flat-footed to
accept $5000 from the Ely promoters to
box Ketchel.
"That Is more money than Sam ever
made In a flght. He had the chance to
defeat Ketchel, and he tossed It.
"One would think that Sam and
Manager Joe Woodman could have
seen the value of getting Into a ring
with a man of Ketchel's standing.
"He wants to fight Burke; he wants
do fight Willie Lewis, and he wants t.
fight Billy Papke. He'd take a few
hundred for either bout, yet he passes
up $5000 for the royal chance of estab
lishing himself.
