Oakland Rooters Enthuse
Over Their Team's First
Victory in Present Series
Seals Work Hard in Hogan's Interest, but the
Commuters Breeze In Ahead, New Sprout,
Mister Ward, Aiding Materially
yesterday afternoon, but this old neighborly feeling business runs tor the
estimable Mister Sweeney and the end book, and if one Billyum Reidy can
prevent it the Oaks will not cop the pennant. Despite the fact that Bud
Sharpe's tossers look like the original candy kids headed for pennantville, the
nearest and dearest neighbors of the Oaks are doing their little best to bump
the transbay lads into second place.
The Seals fought a game uphill battle
yesterday, and the aforesaid Billyum I
Reidy was the sorest man in Alameda I
county wh'en Yohe was nabbed in an
attempt to swipe second in the ninth
inning, thereby ending the festivities.
It was the Oaks' first victory of the
series, nnd the transbay fans enthused
accordingly. When the Oakland fans
enthuse they enthuse some.
It was a stormy session, but prob
ably the storminess was instrumental
in helping the Oaks to register. Right
in the first inning the war clouds
gathered. Bill Leard, first man up for
the Oaks, held a heated debate with
Umpire Hildebrand over an alleged
strike, and Bill's language was so
warm that Hildy wagged him to re
tirement. It was a tough situation
for Cap Mitze, as his lineup was al
ready shot to pieces. Pitcher Tyler
Christian being forced into the fray in
an outfield position at the start of the
Mitze looked over the available tal
ent on the bench and decided to take
a chance with Vincent Ward, a busher,
who donned an Oakland uniform yes
terday for the first time. Mr. Ward
was delegated to attend to matters in
left field and Tyler was brought in to
It was Ward's vicious swipe in the
seventh inning which brought In the
two runs that Oakland needed, and it

Corhan'B line drive to the fence in the
fourth inning , and doubled Mclntyre at
flrst, the latter digging out for second
•H the assuraac* ot his coachers that
tl;e wallop was a safe one.
Ward was one of the heroes of the
contest. The other was Bertram Coy,
who hoistci the pellet over the fence
in the sixth inning and stuck the
Oa'r.'o in the tally column with a brace
o? runs. Abbot having been perched on
the s'-conu cushion by virtue of a safe
swat hr-.i a steal.
Mularkry and Planning, the rival
;i!;cher?:, had an interesting duel, but
the 3<\'U livavor was taken out in the
c!*ht') i:u;iii£ to let Baker bat for
him. Up to tiie ninth Malarkey pur

i-v-n'iß ;;ot next to Ma offerings in the
i:Jnt.:i ;::k1 grabbed four bingles, wbict)

The Oaks breezed into the tally
column in the sixth inning:, when Coy
put. a Tanning: offering over the fence
cli'se to the big bull sign, scoring- Ab
i.'.tt ahead of him. The Seals came
rijjht back in the seventh and put the
ecore in a knot. Zimmerman singled
and purloined second. Corhan bit oft
a safe ono, which scored Zim. Cor
han went to second on the throwln,
and to third on Yohe's death. Bill
Malarkey then out loose a wild pitch,
and although Catcher Mitze threw him
self bodily on top of the rushing Cor
han. he was a moment too late, and the
score was deadlocked.
The seventh was the big noise from
an Oakland standpoint. Cook copped
a bingle, and on the play at first base
the Seals gathered around the umpires
and eased their vexed feelings. Mc
latyro came all the way from left field
to ease his, and did not return. He
was delegated for clubhouse duty by
Mr. Ilildebraml. McAvoy took up the
vacant position in the left pasture.

LOS ANGELES. Oct. 17.—Today's
ball game between Los Angeles and
Portland was a decidedly one. sided
affair. In fact, It wa*s all Los Angeles
all the way. The score at the finish
was 6 to 0, and the Seraphs owned
the 6.
Stiter pitched for the visitors and
was touched for only seven hits. To
convert these hits into six runs the
Seraphs found easy. Leverenz was on
the mound for the Angels, and while
Portland swatters got to him for nine
hits, there was nothing doing in the
run line.
The Beavers are playing snappy ball
and were entitled to a better showing
than they achieved. The plays broke
against them in every case, while a
beneficent providence seemed to have
the fate of the Seraphs in charge.
Two runs and two hits marked in
ning No. 2, and two hits and one run
was the result of inning 3. Four and
five were fruitless, but In the sixth it
went like this:
Metzger doubled to the score board.
Page out, Bancroft to Norton, Metzger
going to third. Driscoll singled to
right, scoring Metzger. Core walked.
Driscol stole third. Core stole second.
Boles filed to Cunningham. Lev*rent
singled to left, Driscoll scoring. Core
was safe at the plate when Fisher
dropped Cunningham's perfect peg.
Howard out, Baker to Norton.

Willie Hoppe, who Is
Up Against Frankie
Kirk This Evening
Both Lightweights Promise Fast
Boxing; Whole Program at
Dreamland Is Good
One of the* most sensational four
round lightweight battles of the year
is looked for this evening at Dream
land between Willie Hoppe, the tear
ing lad from Butchertown, and Frankie
the sailor from Vallejo. Both
lads have perfect ring records' and the
fans expect to keep on their toea every
minute of the time that they are in
Hoppe looks like the best lightweight
the game has produced since Willie
Ritchie came to the front. He is fa&4,
and a great hitter and starts after his
man right at the outset. He has con
quered all comers up to the present
time and a victory over "Kirk surely
will win him a place among the 20
round performers in the near future.
Hβ <ertainly is entitled to this chance.
Kirk has beateu all comers over
every distance from 4 to 20 rounds.
Most of his fights have been won by
knockouts and for this reason the Val
lejo fans will be at the ringside to
back him against the local whirlwind.
If Kirk is half as fast and half as' ef
fective as his boosters say, he will
give the Butchertown boy the hardest
argument he ever has had.
The other Butchertown favorite. An
tone La Grave, will go against Jack
Fitzgerald, the Denver welter weight.
La Grave has been a consistent per
former sdnce he became a welter weight
and will rule a favorite over the Den
verlte. The latter appeared in this
city several months ago and made a
good impression. He is fast on his
feet and a good two handed fighter.
Lee Johnson, the colored feather
weight from Oakland, is coming back
after a long rest to take on Abe Label.
The little smoke is about the cleverest
boy of his inches on the Pacific coast.
Label can hit hard, but he has the
reputation of being ,an in and out per
former. This is his last chance. If he
does not show what he has he will be
barred for all tim* by the supervisors.
For a heavy weight attraction they
have matched Rufe Cameron, the giant
local negro, and (Bailor Schafer, the best
of the big fellows from Vallejo. Cam
eron Is a good defensive fighter, while
his opponent is one of the slam bang
performers who keeps going all the
time. It looks like an even go, with
the edge slightly in favor of the local
The other boute are as follows: Wil
lie Meehan vs. Montana John Thomas,
middle weights; Buck O'Neill vs. Red
Nerval, lightweights; Tex Welsh vs.
Young Mitchell, feather weights; Jack
Carrot! vs. Jim O'Donnell, middle
weights; two ring warmers between
well known local performers.
The first bout will start promptly at
8 o'clock in order that the fans will be
able to get home in good season. The
fiprhterf- will be ready with their gloves
on to step right into the ring and there
will be no delays.

Those Hogan Maneaters a
Dangerous Factor in the
Oaks' Pennant Prospects
From Homer by Fi'ongswah Hosp in the First
Inning the Tigers Literally Eat The
Hapless Solons Alive
have been playing during the present week, the Oakland dopester who is
trying to figure how the Oaks are going to capture the pennant had better
jot down a clean sweep for Vernon, as Hap Hogan's Tigers are having about ,
as much trouble in winning as it is to count six straight. The Tigers hung
up win No. 3 today by a score of 11 to 5. From the way the two teams
started out, one would think a world's
title were 'hanging in the balance.
The Tigers grabbed three at a jump
and Van Buren chalked up two.
Vernon kept going, while Van's crew
stuck fast, and when the score ha(t been
run up to 10 to 2 by the seventh,
neither team cared what happened.
Easy fly balls were evaded by the out
fielders, while the pitchers grooved 'em
over. It was an inspiring sight, in- _ . . . _
Francois Hosp put the Tigers on easy
street in the first inning, when he drove
out a home run with Carlisle and Bay
less on bases. Jimmy Lewis only hit
the ball for half the journey in Sacra
mento's half and brought in O'Kourke
and Swain, who had singled.
Johnny Williams insisted ■on filling
the bases at the opening of the fifth
by passing Carlisle and Kane and let
ting Bayless get an infield hit. Brash
ear grounded out. letting Carlisle over,
and Hosp brought Kane and Bayless
Two home runs, both by the courtesy
of the outfielders, were made by
OTiourke and Hosp.
Swain did his bsst to get Hosp the
perquisites that go with a homer in the
ninth, but Francois failed to touch
second and, although he made the cir
cuit, was called out. The score:
