Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) - July 2, 1917, Oakland, California V io MONDAY EVENING Ctftune OAKS BREAK EVEN IN DOUBLE BEE SESSION INDIAN BLOWUP BEATS By CARL E. BRAZIER. Indian Smith staged about ae clean-cut -.....jp -s afternoon as any pitcher in the league has shown this year, and that blowup was all that stood in the way of a double Seal Victory for the day. Also it stopped the Angel losing streak after the Chancemen had lost four straight gtmes of the series to Jerry Downs' sc.uad. Five nips the ninth inning brought the Angels from be- hind and gave them a 7 to 4 win. But the Seals had won, 4 to 1, in the morning rame through tight pitching by Spldti Baum and through loose and wild pitch- Ing bv Jack Ryan, and that morning win gave the Seals their fourth win of the week necessary to sew up the series.

The Oaks took the first game, B to 2, in as pretty an exhibition of close- cut OaaeOoU hui> bettn on ihv Sail Luke lot this, year. In ihe sec- ond game the Bees wobbled in their fielding behind Jean Dubuc, who might have pitched shutout ball if errors had not given the Oaks two runs in the opening frame. But the Bees made up for their bad field- ing by doing hard hitting and they chased Goodbred to the bench and put over one more run off Sammy Beer for a 6-to-3 ivin that gave them the odd game of the series, four games to three. After Saturday's big slugging exhibition, yesterday's real baseball seemed rather tame. The Oaks were away to a lead in their half of the first inning in each game. In the first game they held their lead all the way. In the second game the Be.es came right back and evened the count in the first frame and went out ahead for a final lead in the j iast half of the fourth after the Oaks had again taken the lead in their half of the fourth.

So many people drag through the Rummor season with th.it worn Oown, tired-out that almost entirely tiiciii lor their l.i'-X.-. oui Knowing just what thp i.e. Jl is just now that Lane and Danny Hurray were in the honors ranks along with Rod Murphy and Hack Miller as the _best Oak hit- ters for the week against the Bees. Murphy led the field, batting .500 for the series and Hack Miller was second with a .387 batting clip for thfe week. But Lane batted .SSI for the series and Mur- ray batted .364. MenBOr ateo had a good week, fcatting .292 for the games that he was In Ray Miller batted .263 for the series; Lee. .250; Sheehan, .214; and Middleton was low mnn among the r lars, batting only .133 for the week. The Oaks d.'d not get away with the series last week, but they got "away with three out of seven and are not much worse off than a week ago. The Seals and Bees finish the week on the same relative terms as they were a week ago- the Seals are out in front with a lead of six and a half games ox-er the Bees- the Oaks are only three games behind the Bees: Los Angeles Is one game hind the Oaks: Portland is three games behind the Ange'.s; and Vernon is three and a half games behind Portland Tomorrow the Oaks open an picht- gamp series with Los Angeles in the south the eytra came being the Fourth of July double-header Wednesday The Seals will play Vernon on the bay lots in an eight game series, the games Wed- nesday morning, Thursday afternon and Sunday morning being on this side of the bay Portland plays the holiday week series at Salt Lake. After this week in the south tne Oaks return home for three weeks to play A en.on. Salt Lake and the Seals. Reports from Pa't Lnke veFterday were to the effect that Billv Lee Is under the we.ither and will be out of the game for a fe-v days. There Is a possibility of back !nto acti011 tomorrow the chances are that Middleton wjll play left with Lnno and Hack Miller In the other outfield positions for tho flro lew games of the week. Fournier was caught on a a third called strike in the plchth Inning yesterday nfternocn Tho i funny part of it was that It was the only strl'teom Indinn Smith rcc-' for the dny. Sar. Fr.incsool fans tnrnorl out in good- ly numbers, showing once affam that fandom is stronger for the figures on the Scoreboard than tho personalities on the field. When Wolverton was "released" by the Seals it -was thought that baseball would suffer and that the attendance would drop off. Yesterday showed that as long: the Seals are winning: hall games the fans will turn out, even if Hen Berry decides to put Foghorn Mur- phy in as manager. Jerry Downs, the new leader of the Seals, was presented with a big floral tribute on his first time at bat in the afternoon game. Indian Smith was given a new bat and used it his first time up for a long fly to the outfield. Downs was an infield out the first time that he was given the bouquet, but he responded his next time up with a clean drive to center for a. single. In the third Downs was caught be- tween third and home when Corhan failed to make connections on the batting end of the squeeze play. The Angels outguessed the Seals and Hogg wasted his pitch; Corhan could not reach the ball and Downe was trapped almost at the plate. Boles chased him hack toward third beat him in the sprint. In the morning game Downs bad a. bad hooted three grounders, but worse than that, he twice lost track of how things were going when he was at bat. Once when he was at a bat a run- ner was thrown out stealing and Jerry threw down hia bat, thinking it the third It was only the second out. Again Downs lost count of how many balls had been pitched to him and when HaU had him given a base on balls Downs re- mained at tho plate, evidently waiting for another pitch until Umpire Jogged his memory a bit. Sassier was a busy boy behind tho plate for the Angels yesterday morning with seven assists to his credit. Ha handled two bucts in front of the plate for putouts at first: he made a clean Peg tp Kenworthy, which Bill returned to the plate to cut off an attempted don- bio steal, and Bassler's other four as- sists came in turning Seals back when they tried to steal second. Calvo turned back in the first inning1. Maisel and Downs were the last two men up for the Seals in the sixth, and Koerner and Cor- han were the first two up in the each worked Hall for a walk, and each in turn was thrown Out by Bassler in. trying to steal second. Jack Ryan Is one of the veterans of the Coast League. He shares honors w-th Spider Baum as being the two pitch- ers of longest service in the league Tet yesterday morning Ryan heard the bleacherites yelling "Take him Ryan appears to have lost his old-time control. He pitched a total of only five Innings in three different games of the Seal series, and in those five Innings he walked a. total of eight men. made five wild pitches and hit two batters. It be- gins to look as though Spider Baum would ooor be alone In tho position Of the real veteran of the league. Harl Mnpgert -was. out at the clubnotwe In the morning game, but did not show himj-elf on the field. Two blacK were the reason of his keesVjis out or public view. M'aggert had a run-in with Scottv Unify, of the Los Angeles club, and in the free-for-all that followed Maggert gathered two black eyes and Finley accumulated varied injuries that him In bed yesterday. It looks as though Maggert were back at his old tricks just when the fans thought he had reformed. V Raum did some nice pitching in the ninth Inning yesterday morning. The needed three runs to tic the score Downs them a good start when no booted grounders from Ellis and Bass- iet lo start tne ninth. With runners on firs; and sucom) and nobody out, Baum fieitled down to work. He fanned Terry, held Davis to a pop fly to Koerner and then made Boles, pinch hitter, send up an easy fly to Calvo to ;
