Associated Press Sportawrlter
Five home runs in a smashing

Giants. The Phils had six round-
trippers for the night, one short
01 tne national league recora.
Andv Seminick. who nicked
Cincinnati pitching for three
homers last evening, made the
Phils' feat distinct because he
hammers two in the same inning.
That tied a major league mark
shared by several players, ine
last time it was done was by Joe
DiMaggio, June 24, 1936.
Del Ennls' homer started the
big Inning, which opened with
Ken RaffensberRer enjoying a
3-2 lead. Semlnlcit came next.
Before it was over, 10 runs were
home and Puddin Head Jones,
Schoolboy Rowe and Seminick
again had hit the ball out of the
park. Semlnlck's second of the
Inning came with two on. The
final score was 12-3.
Warren Spahn boosted the Bos

to two full games by defeating
Pittsburgh, 4-1, whiie both the
New York Giants and Brooklyn
Dodgers lost.

hits but the losing pitcher, Al

PORTLAND, June 3. (&)
Scattered good fishing spots,
from Odell Lake in the Deschutes
country to the Douglas County

the State Game Commission
Many areas, however, promised
only fair angling for the week

The weekly fishing bulletin
said in part:
Douglas County Reedsport

excellent condition for weekend
angling. A few striped bass have
been caught in lower Umpqua.
Trout angling good. Bass fishing
improving at Loon Lake. Trout,

difficult. Trout angling should be
good if water is okay.
Woodcock K. O.s Mills;
Takes On Savold Next
LONDON, June 3. W) Bruce
Woodcock, a fugitive from ring
oblivion, is being hailed today
as a worthy foe for American
Lee Savold in their Sept. 6 bout
which Britain, at least, terms a
w o r 1 d heavyweight champion
ship affair.
Woodcock retained his British
Empire and European heavy
weight titles last night by knock
ing out world light-heavyweight
king Freddie Mills, also of Eng
land, in the 14th round.
Woodcock beat Savold on a
controversial fourtlnround foul
last December.

jaclt, left, Pacific Coast junior
heavyweight wrestling cham
pion, puts his title on the block
at the Roseburg Armory tomor
row night, when he meets Rene
La Belle, above, who has been
riding the crest of a wave of
victories here and in other Ore
gon cities the last few months.
Stoack Faces
Tough Challenger
In Rene LaBelle
Tex Hager, a headliner In most
of the nation's wrestling capitals,
selectee, an Inopportune time to
make his first Douglas County ap
pearance in several months. The
popular little Oregonian, who
once wrestled for tne world's
light - heavyweight championship
and is an ex-coast titleholder, will
wrestle rugged Tony Filletti, the
bash'ng Brooklynite, in the semi
final attraction at the Roseburg
Armory Saturday night.
The headliner, whcih is expect
ed io attract a near-capacity
crowd, will feature a Pacific
Coast junior heavyweight cham
pionship battle between title
holder Frankie Stojack, Tacoma,
against challenger Rene LaBelle,
The Hager-Filletti skirmish
may match the title tilt for fire
works. Filletti Is a rough-and-tough
matman and Hager may be
forced to use like tactics to pro
tect himself. Hager is quite capa
ble of dishing out as much punish
ment as the ordinary villain
hands out.
Quite a few local ringbirds, who
study their grappling form charts
as carefully as a "horse player,"
predict a new Coast champion
after Saturday night.
LaBelle is certainly as formida
ble as any matman to show here
in the last six months. He has
racked up one victory after an
other and his spectacular drop
kicks and double leg Nelsons
have made him the most-feared
wrestler now campaigning in the
facmc lortnwest. He recently
won a one-night elimination
tournament from a fast field, and
then teamed with Pierre LaBelle
to beat Filletti and Tony Ross, the
"Salem Sadist," in a tag-team
Stoiaek, who has demanded a
$250 guarantee and a re-match In
case of a loss, holds LaBelle in
high respect or he wouldn't have
bothered to make the demands.
The former WSC athlete, who
uses the airplane spin for most of
his triumphs, is always tougher
when his title Is at stake. Except
lor a two-week period, wnen Al
Szasz held the crown, Stojack
has been reigning as king of the
coast junior heavyweights for
more than a year.
The onenlng bout will get under
way at 8:30 p.m. Elton Owen will
retcree both bouts.
