Bob Porterfield of the Yanks
lost his own game when he un

The Boston Red Sox continued

Loser Doesn't Even Know
Name Of Horse Bet On
Just as a matter of curiosity,
Bernard Goodls wishes he knew
the name of the horse he lost $32
on without making a bet.
Goodls lost his wallet contain
ing $32 several days ago. The next
day, he told police, he received
the empty wallet and note in
the mail.
"Next time you lose your wal
let," the note read, "make sure
you have more money In it and
have a better wallet or I will
not return it again. I put your
money on a horse and, if it pays
off, I will return your $32."
Apparently the horse didn't
win. Goodis hasn't gotten his
money back yet.

Angelenos Trim Padres
In Batfest; Ralniers,
Seals Win By Shutouts
(Associated Press Sports Writer)
Wednesday night in the Pa
cific Coast League saw excellent
pitching Sacramento's Bob Gil
llespie pitched a two-hitter but
lost and Seattle's Guy Fletcher got
nis sixtn straignt win on a three
hitter. The night also had some fancy
slugging Los Ange!es and San
Diego hit nine homeruns between
them. The mark was Just two shy
of the PCL record of 11 set 2S
years ago to the day by Vnrnon
and Salt Lake City.
There also was a 12-lnning ball
game in which the league-leading
Hollywood Stars edged the lowly
Portland Beavers 8 to 6.
Dino Restelli bunted Jack
Tobln home from third base in
the eighth to give San Frsndsco
a 1 to'O win despite Gillespie's ex
cellent mound job. One of the
hits off the Sacramento hurler
advanced Tobin to third.
Settle also won over Oakland
by 1 to 0. One unearned run in
the eighth was all Fletcher need
ed to hang up his latest win. The
Ralniers' ace had to hurl that
kind of a came to win aa the
Oaks' Lloyd Hlttle only gave up
four hits.
At Los Angeles It looked like
the boys were out to break the
home run record as all nine of
the blows came in the first five
Luke Easter and Dee Moore
had two homers apiece for the
Padres' four. The Angels divided
their five equally. The score was
12 to 10 for the Angels.
Portland Jumped to a first In
ning three run lead over the Stars
and then Leo Thomas hemered
for the Beavers to deadlock the
game in the ninth 6-6. The stars
opened the twelfth on Frank
Kelleher's infield single. A bad
throw 'ot another Star on base.
A single and a long fly ball then
sent the winning runs home.

he was right in guessing Tom
