Start Off,but Fail to Finish in Front
Bad Afternoon Tumble By
Reidy's Men Spells Loss
Of Both Game and Series
Locals Stand to Win in Post Meridian Session,
1 to 0 ? birt Miller Wabbles and
Beavers Do the Rest %
The Seals are good starters but poor finishers. They were away out in
front. 9 to 1, in the morning game over in Oakland, and it looked as though
they ought to repeat when they lined up on their own back yard in the
afternoon—but they fell down. The Beavers landed 2to 1 after nine innings
of airtight ball. Miller was the man who tossed the victory off. The loss of
that game carried with it the loss of the series, too, which made it doubly
costly for the home team. They were j
tied up on the series, with three]
games each, when they lined up at
Recreation park for the deciding j
game of the week before a crowd that ,
-was surprisingly large.
The game was by far the best played j
and the most interesting of the week. I
They were after each other at all times. 1
and neither could put a tally over until
the eeveath frame, whea the Seals j
squeezed Corhan over. This one should'
* have won the game, but Miller scram- j
bled things up on the boys In the next ;
•pa»m. The Beavers did a comeback j
With two of them and it was good night.
The hits were w|l strewed all along!
the 4 rottte of battle. Occasionally a,
couple of them would get bunched up. j
but these did not count in the earlier !
Mages, because the fielders were in- j
variably there to snap up the hard ones;
in the tight places and thus save the j
lives of the pitchers. Many a tally was
prevented by clever stops and throws j
[he infielders.
There was one man gone in the lucky
seventh round when Roy Cornell sapped j
bail to the center garden for a
pretty two saeker. Yohe. the speediest |
man on'the team, grabbed a bat and j
mped the ball down to first. He tore J
te the bag like a Bakersfield jackrab- j
bit and just barely beat the ball. The j
Beavers were all watching first and j
paid no attention to Corhan, who took j
advantage of the opportunity to slide
the plate.
With Miller apparently right, It
looked like a 1 to 0 victory for the
Ig. The Beavers had only two more
cracks at it, and as Miller had them j
all working for him up to this time,
the fans felt confident enough that he j
would manage to get by without having |
Of damage done to his offerings.
r. the first man to face Miller'
in the eighth frame, took a mean slap j
on the arm. Bancroft tried to put him
down, grounding to Corhan, but the j
latter pegged Baker out at second base. i
.Miller appreciated 'this clever bit of]
fielding and responded by striking j
Harkneas out.
But the big blowoff followed Immedi- '
;.. The local speed boy was unable j
to whip the ball over to either Cun-j
ningham or Doane. Both walked, fill- |
ing up the sacks. Along came Ilogf r--.

gte to the left garden. It was a hit

-''nam raced home. As the Seals)
could do no good for themselves in their j
half of the ninth the fans left the park j

Typhoid Fever Demoralizes Los
Angeles Team
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
LOS ANOKLES, Oct. 13.—Vernon took
two more games from tlm demoralized
Angels today by scores Which tell the
tale of the dissolution of a ball club.
The morning game was a comedy of
errors, in which Vernon and Marks,
Los Angeles' pitchers, were clowns.
The score was 11 to 2. The afternoon's
game was so bad that it were better
to list it as a tragedy, and Leverens
and Marks were the wicked villains.
They allowed the Vernon hitters to
take 18 hits, and the score was 13 to 0.
In addition to bad heaving, the Angel
fielders seem lacking in spirit. Since
the death of Heitmuller they are list
less. Four s'arlng errors marked each
of today's ganres. The members of the
Los Angeles team who are not in the
nospital are expecting to be stricken
daily, and to this is attributed the
slump which has amazed and distressed
dition. Pete Smith, his brother, who is
with him, yesterday sent word for an
other brother and Hughey's mother to
come from San Francisco at once.
Sh kness has become so prevalent
among the Los Angeles players that
Henry Berry has started a rigid inves
tigation to ascertain the cause. Frank
Dillon and "Bill" Tozer were added to
the list yesterday. Chandler Bush,
Berry's nephew, who has been work
ing at tbe park, also lias been taken
ill, and his case has been pronounced
jihoid. "Doc" Finley, trainer of
ah. is sick at home and "Boots"
Weber, assistant secretary of the team,
is just recovering from a short siege

( itptuiu of the Glnntx.
NEW YORK. Oct. 13.—Tomorrow's game will tell
the story. it Boston wins the game, that, of
course. <ettles it. If we win it, we have a
mighty good chance to take the series.
1 look to see Collins go in against Marquard.
Stahl can afford to take chances now. The betting
ought to be in our favor on that game, for with Rube '
right he is a far better pitcher than Collins.
Both Meyers and myself are away behind in our
batting averages. I have only batted 200 in the series:
and Meyers has a percentage of 278. We are liable
to come through tomorrow and do something with
the stick.
If Tesreau gets another chance, he is going to
come pretty close to winning against Wood or any-
Bbdy else. One thing is certain, we are not licked
yet. and shall not he until Boston has that fourth
game stowed away—if she ever gets it.*

Partial Selections for
C.S.A.L. Meet
[spect"a/ Dispatch io The Call]
OAKLAND, Oct. 13.—Interclass track
meets among the youngsters of the
local branch of the Catholic Schools',
Athletic league, held on the St. Mary's
college stadium during- the last week.
have resulted in parttal team selec
tions by the school coaches for the
indoor meet of the league October 25.
St. Joseph's academy team is train
ing steadily, although Coach Al For
schlund has refused to announce the
names of the lads to represent the
Berkeley institution until some further
Louts O'Brien. who lately took
charge of the St. Joseph's institute tads
from Vest Oakland, has not yet had a
chance to size up his material, but
has a likely looking bunch of lads to
pick from, lit will have them out for
tryouts during the coming week on
the St. Mary's college track.
St. Anthony's s<-hooi. East* Oakland,
has a large bunch of youngsters to
select from and during the coaching of
Gerald Brusher will rival the academy
team in point of numbers.
• ""oach Theo Davie already has an
nounced some of the youngsters to
represent Sacred Heart school, al
though nearly all of them will be in
the lightweight division. The lads
from this school are of small stature
and for this reason the coach has de
cided to enter them in only the light
weight ranks. Teams will be entered
in the 70 and f>s pound relay races.
The 70 pound team in practice last
week covered tho distance in record
breaking time. Captain Mitchell, sup
ported by Cronin, "Wiggins, Considinr
and Nolan, will enter the 95 relay. The
70 relay team will be picked from
Baker, TV". Adams, Silveria, 11. Adams,
Hallmire and Brawley.
The school will have a few entries
in the heavy divisions. Those already
selected by the coach are Young and
Cooke, to run in the 115 pound dis
tance races, and Dwyer for one of the
heavy sprinters.
Disqualifications In
Motor Boat Races
Disqualifications were the order of
the day yesterday at Belvedere during
the race held by the Pacific Motor Boat
club to determine the winner of the
yearly cup. Three of the four boats
entered were disqualified, which gatie
Fred Kelly's Niad the race. The vic
tory of the Niad complicates the award
ing of the cup, as this boat is now tied
with a score of six points with the
Isabel. A special race will be run off
at an early date.
Walter McCarthy's Isabel ran down a
row boat, and for Ibis reason alone was
disqualified, though had this not hap
pened the boat exceeded its time allow
ance and would have been put out of
the race.
The Lady Bountiful had an accident
and ran on the rocks off Shark point,
but got off without any damage being
done. .On completing the course it was
found that this boat had also exceeded
its time for the course. The Liberty
was the other boat disqualified owing
to exceeding the time allowance.
The other race of the day was for the
Tuckey cup, the Mercury, owned v»y
Burllson. taking 'he trophy from Wal
lach's Glory by exactly 10 minutes.

Star Pitcher of tho Red Sox.
NEW YORK, Oct. 13.—1 am glad of one thing in
these games. Tt has been said that the Boston
team was a one or two man team. I think it
lias been demonstrated that it is a 22 man team.
In looking over the games, I can't find that we
have been found lacking in a single department of the
game. Bedient, Collins and O'Brien have all pitched
great ball, the catchers have not permitted the Giants
to run wild, the infield has shown an article of fielding
worthy the best traditions of the game, while the out
fielders have been fully up to the mark.
There has not been a man who has not done a
man's work, and at »the same time the team has
worked so smoothly that the absence of any single
man in the lineup would not have killed our chances.
The Boston team, it must be admitted, has lived up
to its reputation.
McGraw's Men Not Quailing at
Need of Winning Three
in a String
Manager Giants •
NEW YOBX. Oct, 13.—We have now
got to get three atraighta or lose the
series. It lock* like a big order, but I
believe that we can do it, and the mem
bers of the Now York team agree with
me. The club has be&n playing far
below its form in all the gamea. The
players hiva been nervous acd uncertain
of themselves. I expect to start Mar
quard tomorrow, but my selection of a
pitcher may depend upon tho Boston
eh ice.
# Manager Red Sox
MEW YORK, Oct. 13 —The boys feel
pretty confident of the result new, and
everything seems to be in our favor. Of
course, we expect to win the game to
morrow, bu'. if we happen to lose we
still have two more ahances to take the
eharrpionship. The beys believe they
have the Giants on the run. and it would
not surprise me to win by a big score
tomorrow. I have not yet decided upon
my pitcher.
[Special Dispatch to TUe Call]
NEW YORK, Oct. 13. —Winning three
games in a row from the Boston Red
Sox is the task which now confronts
John J. MoGraw and his band of New
York Giants before the world's cham
pionship banner can float over the
Polo grounds. Three games in a row,
with "Smokey Joe" Wood, to be beaten
bttee, at least, and perhaps twice, is a
task which might well make the stout
est hearted manager or player quail;
yet there is not a man on the team,
from McGraw down to the mascot, little
Dick lienne;ss-y_ who Is willing to con
cede victory to the host from the city
of culture, beans and higgledy-pig
gledy streets.
With their backs against the wall,
I treading a narrow trail on which the
' slightest false step will plunge them
into the depths of defeat, the Giants
will take the field tomorrow afternoon
for what may be termed the "crucial
game of the series," ready to battle to
the last ditch to stem the tide, Which,
once turned, they believe, will lead on
to victory. Some slight advantage rests
with the Giants in the game tomorrow.
They have had a brief respite, the ad
vantage of sleeping in their own beds
and eating home food; and —last but all
important—they will be able to make
the stand on their home grounds, be
fore a friendly crowd.
Who will the pitchers be? This was
the burning question today among the
thousands who are still hoping that
th-. tide will still turn in time so that
the Giants will ccme in on the floor.
Neither manager would give an ink
ling as to his plans. In all probability
ne'thcr has any definite plans, as so
much will depend upon the conditions
und how the men warm up. Jake Stahl
must decide an all Important question
ro far as Joe Wood is concerned, and
whichever move he makes will be open
to criticism—unless tne move he makes*
carries him to victory.
Some critics contend that Stahl
should send Ray Collins or "Buck"
O'Brien to the box today, even with
the chance of losing so as to give
Wood another full day's rest in which
to regain his full strength. Others
contend that Stahl would commit an
error of judgment in not taking full
advantage of the fact that the Giants
in a measure are on the run, and in not
striking when the iron Is hot with a
man who has won two victories for the
Red Sox. Stahl, however, will settle
this all important problem, and the
chances are that he will not make a
decision until the bell rings.
McGraw, no doubt, wiil wait pa
tiently to see what Stahl does before
making his own selection. If Wood
goes to the box he is almost sure to call
on Jeff Tesreau, who, while beaten In
two games, has pitched as well aa his
successful rival.
If Collins is Stahl's selection, or
O'Brien, McGraw is likely to send Mar
qimrd to the mound to repeat, if pos
sible, his sterling performance at Fen
way park, where he pitched his team to
the only victory of the series. If, per
chance, the Giants win, he can send
Tesreau against Wood Tuesday and
have Matty groomed after a long rest,
if the seventh game is necessary.
Heine W»gner, the shortstop of the
Red Sox, has proven a barrier almost
impassable to the Giants. Then, too,
there is Tris Speaker, who, though
crippled as he has been in the last
two games, has made many sensational
catches of long drives which have cut
off several runs.
Harry Hooper, the right fielder of
the Red Sox, has been a great surprise
—that is, to the Boston fans. Through
out the season Hooper batted only .2*7,
getting only 145 hits in 590 times at
bat. In the five games played to date,
however, Hooper has got seven hits in
nine times at bat, including two dou
bles and a triple, and has scored four

of the five bases pilfered.
Close on the heels of Herzog comes
Red Murray, who went through the
series last season without a hit—but
bygones are distinctly bygones with
Jack. His fierce, free hitting has been
one of the features of the games played.
In 19 trips to the plate he has poied
six hits, including a triple and two
doubles; has scored three runs and
driven as many over the plate with his
timely wallops.

Lowly Senators Set The
Commuters Back a Notch
In Contest for Pennant
Deacon's Choir Boys Whale the Horsehide At
Opportune Times and Oaks, Fighting
Hard, Drop Both Games
; . ■
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SACRAMENTO, Oct. 13. —The pennant chasing Commuters were tem
porarily halted today by the lowly Senators, who romped away with both
-ames of the double header by whaling the ball opportunely. The firs)
session was seized in the ninth inning charge by a score of 2 to 1. Billy Orr
breaking it uo with a Texas Tommy. The final struggle was decided 4 to 3.
Orr breaking a tie score with a sacrifice fly to Coy. The Oaks died hard in
each bout. They suffered Judge Mun
sell to put a decided crimp in their
batting percentages in the rirst game,
but went after Honolulu Johnny Wil
liams roughshod in the last. They,
outhlt the lawmakers 2 to 1, but Wtl- '
liams was effective in tight places.
Malarkey hurled for Oakland in the
curtain raiser and drew a package of
hard luck. Triples by MunseUand van
Buren in the sixth gave the Senators
their only legitimate marker. This one
evened Oakland's run that was regis
tered in the fifth on Van Bttren's muff
of Orr's toss, giving Abbott life, and
Coy's double to left.
The ninth inning was all but over
when Abbott gave the Senators an
i opening by dropping Lewis* fly after
two were down. Lewis made second on
the glaring misplay and sprinted home
on a Texas leaguer which Orr put back
of second.
Only five bingles were gleaned off
Gregory and Pernoll in the last canter,
but they were given their full market
value, while many of the 10 Oakland
garnered were wasted. The Oaks
opened the game like winners. Leard
grabbing a run on a pass, Abbott's sac
rifice, a stolen base and Coy's singles.
Sacramento retorted in the second with
two. Heister drew a walk, Lewis sin
gled to infield. Orr sacrificed and Irelan
cleaned the bases with a double along
the right field chalk line.
Leard was not to be denied and
started the third frame with a single,
which he soon converted into a stolen
base. Iteitmeyer's toss was bad and
Leard scrambled to third. Abbott
singled liim over. When Lewis booted
the ball Abbott took second, went to
third on an infield out and walked
home on a wild pitch.
Gregory courted trouble in the sixth
by passing Van Buren. O'Rourke
popped out to Tiedemann, but Heister
contributed an infield hit. Lewis
drove between left and center for two
bases and Van came home with the
tying run. Gregory was derricked at
this stage and Pernoll took up the job
with men on second and third. Orr flied
to Coy and Heister easily beat the
throw home. Neither team could regis
ter after that. The scores:
