Di Biasi, Helser
Credited Wins
Seals Split, Drop I
Into Seventh Spot
By the AssocUted Press
Th Portland Beavers," "who
started the week in, the cellar,
swept two more games from, the
Lcs Angeles Angels today to move
into pixth place in the Coast lea
gue. J . :
The scores were 7-1 arid 7-2,
giving the Beavers the series, six
games to 'one.
Viike Di Biasi, Portland's ace
chucker last year, finally regained
his 1948 form and held the Angels
to three hits in the first game.
Los Angeles got to him for a
run In the first inning, but was
helpless thereafter. The run came
on Wayne Terwilliger's double and
two infield outs.
Leo Thomas and John Bucker
clouted ' nme runs for Portland,
Thomas' coming with two men on
base n the fourth inning.
In I the seven-inning nightcap
) Joe Brovia and Vince Shupe
1 smashed homers for the Beavers,
while lefty Roy Helser was scat
tering seven hits to keep the An
gels scoreless except in the third
The Angels tallied twice in that,
frame through a Helser balk. Ter-.
williger came home on the balk
and Cece Garriott moved up to
third from where he scored on
Clarence Maddern's long fly.
The double win made it five
consecutive victories for the Beav
ers, currently the hottest team in
the league. They have won 12 of ;
their last 14 games.
Sar Francisco's Con Dempsey
shut put Seattle, 3-0, in the first
game of their Pacific Coast league
twin bill today but the Rainiers
came back to win the seven inn
ing nightcap, 9-2. The split gave
Seattle a five to two edge in the
seven, game series.
Two great center field catches
by Jack Tobin helped Dempsey
hold the Rainiers scoreless for his
seventh win of the season.
Seattle had a man on first base
with one away when Tobin raced
back to the wall to Snag Frank
Colman's wind-driven liner back
handed. On the next play the fleet
outfielder made a diving, somer
sault shoestring catch of Al Ly
ons' low drive.
In the nightcap, Herb Karpel
racked up his seventh victory
against two losses as Seattle
pounded Hal Gregg for 12 hits. The
Seals got their only runs in the
fourth, when Rocco homered with
the bases empty, then Reno Cheso
doubled and came in on Dario Lo
diginia's single.
