ADDITIONAL SPORTING NEWS Gossip of Pennant Race Seals May Finish Second JOE MURPHY The baseball statisticians and ex perts in the east already are pro claiming the victories of the New York Giants in the National league and the Philadelphia Americans In the Junior major league, so I don't see any reason why we wild and wool ly westerners should not show a little nerve and do some forecasting our selves in regard to our own Pacific Coast league. It seems to me we are not taking as many liberties in prog nosticating that the Portland Beavers will capture the Coast league pennant as those who have the nerve to con cede that Connie Mack's Athletics, with a bare seven game lead over the Cleveland Naps.'. ■ A week ago. the race in the Pacific Coast league looked like a good one. The Sacramento Wolves looked to have an excellent chance to finally overcome ■ the Beavers, which had a lead of about five games at the time, but my, what a difference six days has made. A good race has been turned into a funeral procession, with the Beavers In the hearse, but much alive. There is still a chance of one of the other clubs. overtaking the Beavers, but why expect the impossible? With a lead of more than 10 games the Beavers are winging out in front, playing in the height of their form, and every athlete on the team is as healthy as a longshoreman. There is not one consoling thing that can be said for the other teams to give them hope. They appear to be up against it. and the real race now looks to be for second place, and it looks like a good one, with three teams fighting every inch of the way. Portland has a lead of about 11* games over Venice, the contender, at this writing. There are still eight weeks of the season left and five of them the Beavers will spend on the road. This is always counted on as a handicap to a club, but, strangely, the northerners have displayed their best form on the road. The other three weeks of the season the Beavers will spend at home. You tan figure that a number of these games will be called off on account of rain, as wet weather can be expect ed In the north from how on. ; > The Beavers will play the Oaks here this week, and during the se ries beginning September 9 will clash with the Seals on the local grounds. Then the northerners go home for a three weeks' stay, taking on the Venice Tigers. Seals and Oaks in suc cession. This marks their last stay at home, and then they will be on thp road for two . weeks, clashing with Los Angeles in the south and finishing the season at Sacramento Wolves. There is no angle by which you ran figure that you can beat the Beavers out of the pennant. The team is in excellent shape, and the pitchers, which probably are the best collection of minor league fiingers in the country, are working in great form. The club is a fighting one. as was proven by their playing in the present series with the Angels. The race for second place looks to WHERE CAN YOU DUPLICATE GORDAN'S OFFER?

Since the Seals added the two major league star, pitchers, Jeff Overall and Lefty Liefield. they have been showing championship form, and their chances of dropping in second hole look to be almost even. About a game and a half separates the Seals and Tigers for second place, which is now held by the lat ter club. Sacramento is less than two games behind Venice and about half a game behind the Seals, which shows how closely these three clubs are bunched. The Angels are about four- and a half games behind the Tigers. Summing up the recent work of the contenders for second place, the Seals look to have an excellent chance of finishing in a respectable position. At one stage of the race the club looked to be destined to finish in last, but the acquisition of several former major league stars bolstered up the weak spots and gave the club a fresh start. * * # The Seals will go south this week to play Venice, and then they return home for a week, after which they will be on the road two weeks, meet ing Los Angeles and Portland. They come home again for a week to play the Wolves, and then depart for their final road trip, playing Venice and Los Angeles in the south. The last week of the season the Seals will spend at home against Venice. * * « The loss of a game frequently de moralises a club, and this was best evidenced when the Wolves were beaten on last Wednesday afternoon by Portland, in the north, in the ninth ir.ilng. Sacramento had a lead of five runs when the Beavers went to bat in the last frame, but the northerners experienced a batting streak and made six runs. This defeat simply took the pepper out of Wolverton's fighting gang, and they proved easy for the Beavers, going down to defeat seven times In a row and losing whatever chance they had of capturing the pennant. Probably, with this victory under their belt, which was the second of the series, the Wolves would hare captured a coflple of the other games. In Saturday's game Wolverton took out Klawltter in the sixth because he lost confidence in him on account of his defeat on Wednesday. The Wolves were in the lead when Klawltter w,as removed and Kinsella took up the job. The Beaver* got to him and tied up the score. Kinsella finally tossed off the game In the eleventh, when he forced home the winning run by walking a man. It is probable that had Klawitter won that Wednesday afternoon's game Wolverton would have allowed him to stick in the box In Saturday's game. Concord hs* signed np a good boy In Denny Holloran.

THE SAN FRANCESCO CAJJEs MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 1913.^ NO, THE YANKEES WON'T LAND COBB President Navin Denies An other of the Usual Wild Rumors DETROIT, Sept. I.—"About once each year the newspapers of the country dispose of Ty Cobb, but in spite of their best efforts the center fielder Is going to stay fight here in Detroit." That's what President Frank Navin of the Detroit Tigers said when asked about the New York story that Cobb was to become a member of the New York Highlanders next sea son for $40,000. "Cobb has not been sold, nor have we the slightest intention of dispos ing of him," said Mr. Navtn. "As for a stock holder tipping it off in New York, I wish to say that all the stock holders of the club are now In De troit except one, who owns a small block of stock, and it could not be on the strength of his holdings. * * » The Cleveland Naps moved half a game nearer the Athletics, conquer ing the St. Louis Browns. Twenty-two hits were made in Sunday's slugging match between the White Sox and the Detroit Tigers, with the Tigers winning the game.

It is said that formal charges will bo brought by the president of the Giants against Manager Dooln for the Ir.tter's unbridled talk after Satur day's forfeited game in Philadelphia. It is charged that Dooln made the assertion In Hempstead's presence that the "New York Giants could buy the umpires." The Boston Braves, who tackle the Giants this afternoon, have been greatly strengthened since their last appearance at the polo grounds. BIG MILITARY MEET Lieutenant O. E.

PHILLIES WANT GAMES CANCELED Will File Protest Unless President Lynch Erases Forfeiture PHILADELPHIA, Sept I.—The Phillies may ask that the double headers played at National League park on August 16 and 23 be thrown out of the league record. Manager Doom declared a protest would be filed against the victories gained by Chicago and Pittsburg on those days, unless President Lynch erased the 9 —o forfeiture which Umpire Brennan gave New York here on Saturday. Brennan's action in the game with the Giants was based on the fact that fans were dancing and waving papers in a section roped off in the bleachers in a direct line from the plate. Those seats had been roped off, but spec tators crawled over the ropes and took the seats. The Philadelphia management and the police refused to force the fans to vacate, declaring it was not within their rights. Doom declared that in the games with the Cubs the crowd had filled practically every seat in the roped off section, and the Phillies lost both. In the game with Pittsburg, he says, the bleacherites crowded Into the forbid den section. Again the Quakers lost. Dooln will not be manager of the Phillies next season, according to a rumor here. The rumor will not down and the management refuses to dis cuss the matter. It is known that the club officials have been looking around for some weeks for a successor to Doom, whose contract expires with the end of the present season. The choice appears to have nar rowed to two persons, "Hank" O'Day, the umpire, and Otto Knabe, the Phil adelphia second basemao. Friends of Dooln declare that neither of these men compares with Doom as manager. TO BEAT TRAVERS PROBLEM OF GOLF GARDEN CITY. N. V.. Sept.
