The Busher Who Plays to the Grandstand Gets His Just Dues From the Bleachers
CALL'S DOUBLE PAGE OF SPORTS The Fugitive at Large WOLVES IN THIRD PLAGE AND THE FOND PENNANT DREAM FAST FADES AWAY Grand Chance to Gain on Tearing Beavers Fails, and Now It Looks as Though There Is Little Chance to Stop McCredie From Hoisting the Flag in Portland Next Spring JOE MURPHY Though they suffered defeat yesterday for the first time during the series with the Tigers, the Beavers lost but little of their advantage in the pennant race, as the Wolves, who were closest in pursuit, also lost. The Wolves were winging out in front yesterday afternoon with a three run lead, with Jack Lively pitching airtight ball. Suddenly the scoreboard boy posted the result of the game in the north, which showed that the Tigers had the Beavers 6too in the first five innings. This an nouncement on the scoreboard either caused the Oaks to come to life or else it afforded Lively so much joy that he temporarily forgot the art of pitching. The figures had hardly been posted when the Oaks started a bombard ment which resulted in Lively's re tirement and the loss of the game for the Wolves. The Oaks never stopped until they put over five hits and five runs. It waa a crushing defeat for the Wolves. A victory would have meant the gaining of a full game on the Beavers, as well as shortening the lead Of the northerners to 6V4 games, which would give them a possible chance ln the pennant race The defeat of the Wolves and the Tigers' victory caused the latter club to go back into second place. Spec Harkness, who has been pitching great ball for the southerners, had the pleasure of beating his former teammates. Spec allowed nine scat* tered hits and one run. * * * The sliding Seals continued their downward flight yesterday by taking their fourth successive mauling at the hands of the despised and iowly An gels. It was Lefty Leifield who was victimized this time, and the Dillon iteS treated him the same as Overall. Fanning and the other Seal flingers w|io were giving a walling since their Leifield allowed but sir hit*, but Dillon's men crushed most of their blows into two frames, which netted them four runs. The veteran Charley f'hech dealt out six hits, but he kept them well scattered. A few days ago we were talking about the Seals finishing In the first division, but now it looks as though they will be lucky if they defeat the Angels for fourth place. The locals' lead over the Angels now is less than a full game. When Del Howard left for the south he talked of beating the Angels about fWe times in the aerie? of seven games.- Right now the local fans will be satisfied if the Seals just capture twto of these seven contests. ♦ * * P. W. Long and his wife leave this i afternoon for the east. They will at tend the world's series of games as j guests of Charles W. Comiskey of the * * * Guest, who is holding down third | base for the Oaks in the absence of j Gus Hetling. who is out of the game as the result of an injury, is playing a bane: up article of ball. The young ster looks like a corking third sacker. In fact, there are other teams in the league whose regular men at this i position do not look as good as Guest, jln this particular position the Oaks ! are well fortified, as Hetling is one lof the best third basemen in the j league. * * * Crank Ish. the local magnate was I asked a few days ago if he had any j thing to say in regard to his new ! bal» grounds. No information could jbe ascertained from the veteran, but ) the general Impression is that they I are going along with the negotia tions in regard to the St. Ignatius site at Shrader and Turk streets. )* * # : Quite a number of players from Cal ifornia will share in the big cutup the | players of the Giants and Athletics , will enjoy from the wlrld's series. ; With the Giants are Snodgrass, Shaef :»r and Chief Myers, who will be paid : handsomely for pulling the team out on ; top In the National league. The Ath j letics have no Californians In the reg i ular lineup, but Infielder Orr is a util- I Ity man and will get in on the cut. Marrjuard of the Giants is a great pitcher, but he must not be worked : too often. Recently he suffered a slump, and then McGraw gave him a ■ layoff. Hp g*»t back in harness again ijesterday after a rest and lie white washed St. -Louis, holding the Car •■ dlnals to Three scattered hits. He will be in great form for the world's series if he pitches only an occasional game jfiom now until the end of the season. * * * I Art Krueger, who was traded to Golfer Ray Might Make a Good Hope BOSTON. Sept. 20 A couple of well directed right hand ed smashes on the nose, de livered frith the fall force of the 220 pounds of bone and muscle that Edward Ray, the British jrolfer, supports, was today attributed as the cause of tbe comparatively poor showing; of Wilfred B. Held, another Englishman, In the final ronnda of yesterday's play for the I n I ted States opea golf cham pionship at the Country clnb. Ray and Held enraged In an altercation at the Copley Square hotel Thursday night, and Reld fared second best. Not only was hia nose damaged as the result of Ray's blows, but since the more diminutive Reld was disposed of as a championship possibility. The shock to his nervons system, golfers say, made him unable to do himself justice In the final day's play. Lost Angeles by Portland, for Ty Lober. seems to have found his bat ting eye. He has been hitting the ball right on the nose, and his stick work has been in a measure respon sible for the four successive defeats that the Seals experienced. It is nothing unusual to find spec tators asleep In the grandstand these days. The present one Is simply a series of yawning outings, and the fans who attend the games seem to be there for the fresh air they can enjoy. Though the Seals are not much to brag about, they will be wel comed when they return home. At that we are forced to suffer the Oaks for another week. Pow-Wow Before the Big Dipsea Race i no (nutans arc scncuuiea to hold a big pow wow tonight at Willow Camp as preliminary to the classic cross country race, which starts from Mill Valley tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
