in getting, nine bingles, while five was
.tiie 'best the visitors could annex. The
northerners had one' royal chance to

-The Sealu got otl.to a pood
mtmrt In Sacramento by taking the
opening srame, and the Beaver*
went hack In the percentage col
umn by lowing to the Oaks. There
are but few games between -the
leading three teams, and .all the
Oaks Trill have to do' ls to take
Portland dovrn 'the 'line' again to
day and the northerners will have
to be iiatlflfied trlth third place.
The change t In battlegrounds
iteems to have had a beneficial ef
fect on the Angels, as they won
their first game In more than a
week. The race neems to be as
open as ever.
and they ran the bases -like a bunch

Vitfs Drive Brings In Initial
Run and Henley Shuts Out
[Special Dispatch to The Call] .
SACRAMENTO, Aug. 2.— San Fran
cisco' broke Sacramento's - » winning
streak at Recreation park this after
noon, getting away with, the long: -end
of a 3 to 0 score. .Big Ben Hunt was
the victim. . ' .
It was a pretty pitchers' battle until
the eighth, when : Hunt got into
trouble by walking /Berry, , the /first
man up. McArdle sacrificed and Berry
went to third on. Henley's infield- out.
Vitt' drove a fast one toward second
that struck something and bounced
out of Shinn's- reach, scoring- Berry.
Vitt was out stealing second. .'..'\u25a0.-
Mohler hit: to left in the ninth and
Lewis laid down a perfect bunt. Ten
nant flew to Shinn. Bodle smashed
the -first, one pitched. It' traveled to
the farthest corner of the "lot" in deep
est; center, or it would have cleared- the
fence. Heister raced back and caught
it, but before he got the balP back into
the. infield Mohler and iJewis had each'
advanced a' peg. • Melchior hit a. fast
one which Boardmani.let ; go through
his" legs and, Mohler scored." v Melchior
.stole second and Leeds beat the throw
back to the plate.- Melchior . was ''out
stealing third.;- • »:
Sacramento .could do nothing in-- Its'
half.'. Although" the hits were ", even
Sacrairiento.had the : greater s number, of
men 0n.. . Henley, was in trouble in the
second. The bases were full .and one
outi - when .the -- Senators 'tried 'the
squeeze. The ball came*; straight • over
the: 'plate, but . Spi^sman " missed .arid
Briggs was caught- a mile. :Spiesman
flew \u25a0 out. \u25a0 -' In . the ; fourth 1 ? - sixth • and
seventh --.Senators . iwera on. .l>ase, " but
Henley worked; himself..: out; of the
holes. In -the: seventh -Perry was jon
third and Heister oni'secondrwith . two
down • but Burns '. flew/ out. ;;'. /"
\u25a0 Henley's little . niece - was, struck , in
the ; ninth ;by '"sir. ball.'; "which , came
through, the wire directly b'ack;of the
catcher, but the force! of :the* blow had
been, broken and the little girls- face
was only;; bruised. v : : .'
-All three of today's errors were
hard luck ones. Tennant;. was -blamed
for ; missing a fast thrown from Mohler
at -': a 'short .range. . .;. He- could 7 not "get
his hands , up 1 quickly: enough. :• * -Mc

Spotlights on Sports
Just in the way of showing that- air the y*blg.
money"' for»tfotters Is not offered by American
tracks, the recently contested Austrian trottinc"
derby at -Vienna- in, of interest, especially as the
five, money -winners at the finish were sired by
American trotting stallions, and all but -one
were from marcs pot by American animals..
The purse was $12,000. of whlcn^the winner
received $£.000. and the distance trotted sllshtly
exceeds two miles., so that, stamina .as well as
speed vras required of the- winner. '. The horse
to gain this distinction was Fliejr Davon. of
pure American blood, her sire being E. L.'Rob
inson. 2:175;, and her dam Ella Madison. 2:21 .4
Both sire, and dam -of "Fliejr Davon were sold
years ago to the Europeans, one reason for their
exportation being that \u25a0 their blood . lines were
notTvhat is known a* "fashionable." and the
result — as in many \u25a0othT cases of like nature —
is Jhat the foreigners {tot some high class goods
at what now lcok to be bcrjratn prices.

, Hirh' class shortstops, like hens* teeth, are
miirhty scarce these days, accordinji . to . Georßt*
Huff, veteran scout and chief- picket for the
Cubs. Likewise there's a woeful dearth of
classy first sackers. eligible to advancement from
minor- to major league society.' The bt? man
from the University of Illinois Is authority for
these' assertions, and be should know whereof
he speaks, . for he travels all summer, year after
year; ever* ou the lookout for available talent.-

1 Tim Murnane. the noted baseball writer, says:
"If It were left to the fans to select the best
nine, out of the, major league players X believe
the majority .would name the following men:
Oibson of Pittsburg. catcher; Mathewson of the
Giants, pitcher: Hal Chase of the Highlanders,
first base: Lajole of Cleveland, second base:
Harry Lord, of the- Red Sox. third base;. Hans
Wasner, shortstop: Magee of the. Phillies, left
field: Speaker of the Red'Sox. center field, and
Ty-Xohb. richt field.
."Taking his everyday wcrlc. Gibson is the most
valuable catcher in the bu>lness, a natural born
workman for the position. Mathewson stands
without an equal today, as he has. for 10 years
or more. Hal Chase is unique as the greatest
first .' sacker the game ever produced, and the
same goes for I>ajoie and ' Wagner, when hlttins
is considered. .Harry Lord Is tfie most valuable
third "baseman In .the business.- a peerless base
runner. crid'n'KOftl nil around Batsman,* with the
nerve to- go the full distance."
Koney Is still leading all the .Cardinals at
driving* in runs. In 74 games the big Cardinal
first baseman has driven in 37 runs. The
Brownie, leader. Wallace." does not come within
miles of this figure, having sent home but 2i
tallies in 77 games.- - - \u25a0 \u25a0 -
