OREGON SPORTS HISTORY

April 8-9, 1958

Baseball dominates the local news.

The Portland Beavers are due to arrive soon from exhibition games in Bakersfield, Calif., and college and high school diamond action is heating up.

At Lincoln High, southpaw Mickey Lolich mows down the Grant Generals 6-2 with 11 strikeouts and four hits allowed. The Cardinals’ victory puts the Portland Interscholastic League race into a five-way tie for first place after three games.

At Portland State, Roy Love is the Vikings’ leading pitcher. He is off to a 1-0 start, with no runs allowed in 10 1/3 innings.

Meanwhile, at Nick’s Coney Island on Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, the Portland City League is making plans to meet this weekend.

On the track, Jim Grelle of the University of Oregon has the best early-season marks in the Northern Division in both the 880-yard run (1:55.4) and mile (4:06.8). Another Duck whose name will become even more well-known, Phil Knight, ranks third in the mile (4:23.0).

In the ring, Portland’s Denny Moyer, a 19-year-old welterweight, knocks out Al Barbero in the third round of a prelim to the Eddie Machen-Zora Folley headliner in San Francisco.
