Lefty Kenny Wyatt, although
serving up the first two home
run pitches of the local season,
one to Big Dick Greco in the
second heat and the other to
Bobby Joratz in the third, .the
latter with a runner on base,
nonetheless breezed with with his
fourth straight victory.
He dished out 10 hits in all but
only the two round-trippers, both
dropped over the right field wall,
caused him any grief. The pert
lefty was nding on a 5-0 lead
when Greco spanked his, the five

By tho Associated Press
The San Francisco Seals clinched their series
with the Portland Beavers and atoned for the
plastering the Bevos gave them up north two
weeks ago as they last night downed the Port
lands, 8-6. The win gave the Seals
a 4-1 margin. Bill Werle went the
route for the ODouls, giving up
nine blows. At the same time the
Seals were bunching an equal
number off four Portland hurlers.
Seattle finally broke into the win
column at the expense of Los An
geles, downing the Angels, 3-1,
on the five-hit hurling of Walt
DubieL Lou Novikoff homered for
Seattle. Guy Fletcher rang up his
sixth win as he pitched the Sac

Boxing boss Tex Salkeld's 23-

Garcia has yet to make a bad
fight in the village arena.
Hal Fries, the southpaw feath
erweight stablemate of Abnay,
draws down the 6-round special
assignment on the card. Fries, un
beaten in three previous fights
h.ere, goes up against Chris Greg

The top four-rounder will be
occupied by heavyweights Keller
Wagner, the Rialto rapper, and
Frank Pattee, tough-Portland 200
pounder. Wagner has won three
straight fights since his last arm
ory appearance and according to
his manager Phil Bayes is now
in much better condition than he
was then. Tickets for the punch

' Cline yesterday nabbed a

The Reasons Why Luke teas Turned Loose
So many "how comes?" have flooded anyone who will listen
on the Frank Lucchesi release that It might be well to explain the
real reasons why the popular little outfielder was sacked. (1) The re
building Portlands have no plans for Frank for the future and figured
he might make a belter deal for himself elsewhere, a U Eddie Wheeler.
Frank Shone, et aL (2) What with better bitters Lou Knbiak, Hal
Summers and Bob Moore on hand, plus the possibility of the arrival of
another outfielder soon, the Senator management agreed with the
Portland verdict. Seeing a likeable hastier like Lake turned out isn't
too palatable, but then baseball Is loaded wltb more bad breaks than
good. Too, when a ball club isn't winning changes must be made . . . .
