The Caps started scoring in the sixth on doubles by Jesse Williams and Bob Duretto. The Canadians hit the score board again in the eighth.
Williams singled to right and rounded into second when Brave rightfielder Joe Scalise bobbled the ball. Williams trotted home on Duretto's single to centre. Duretto moved to third when Tri-City second sacker Tom Marier muffed John Ritchey's hot grounder. Ritchey stole second and both Ritchey and Duretto crossed the plate on Gordie Brunswick's single.

YAKIMA [Vancouver News Herald, June 14]—The Capilanos were starting to make noises like a “hot” baseball club here Friday night after their fourth successive WIL win, this one a 4-2 job over Tri-City.
For the first time this season, manager Bill Schuster got away with pitching a second-line pitcher and winning with him. The pitcher was Billy Whyte, a lefty usually used for cleaning up purposes in relief.
Last night Bill went all the way to ninth for his third win. He has one loss. He was relieved by Bob Snyder.
Whyte had a stuggle on his hands before he could hang up his victory, but he made it. After his attack scored three times in the eighth to give him a 4-1 lead, Bill got into the frying pan and Snyder came to help in the last of the ninth.
Three singles and one run made it look awfully uncomfortable for Bob, but just as Schuster was looking towards his bullpen, again he got the third out and got under the wire.
The same clubs wind up the four-game series this weekend with a single game today and two Sunday. Schuster will pitch John Guldborg (6-2), Paul Jones (0-5) and Ed Locke (5-4) in the trio. The Caps open a home stand in Vancouver Tuesday night with a 7 o’clock doubleheader against Salem.
Vancouver ..... 000 001 030—4 11 2
Tri-City ...... 000 000 011—2 11 2
Whyte, Snyder (9) and Ritchey; Gassaway and Carr.

LEWISTON, Idaho, June 12 — John Albini, with two home runs, a double and two singles, hit home more than half of Yakima's runs Friday as the Bears downed Lewiston 13-6 in a Western International League baseball game.
Dario Lodigiani banged out a third round-tripper for the Bears in the fifth inning with no one on base, Sal Taormina accounted for another two runs in the ninth with a triple.
Albini's first homer came in the second with one man on and the second in the seventh with two on base.

Pretty “Cap” Wives Spectate in Seasonal Sports Linens
The Vancouver Province Fashion Editor
[June 14, 1952]
No “baseball widows” here.
These young wives of the Capilanos players sit in on every game . . . “wouldn’t miss one for anything.”
They’re housewives, too, but watching their husbands play ball is as much a part of their day as shopping for the groceries.
When it comes to spectator sports fashions for summer you can be sure they have definite ideas on what to wear. And as professional ballplayers seem to pick uncommonly pretty wives, three of them found themselves posing for today’s “smart spectator” pictures
Love Linen
The girls all voted for linen now that it is crease-resistant and tailored so carefully.
Whether it is a suit, or a coat and dress ensemble, linen fits the requirements for good looks out at the stadium this summer.
Though you will seldom find any of the girls wearing a hat in their special box at Capilano stadium, do like the addition of a pretty hat to make something dressier of their linens for other occasions.
Pitcher Bob Snyder’s wife says there just isn’t anything else but baseball in their lives.
This is the seventh summer in Vancouver and she has come to know the city better than her home town, Reno, Nevada, where they spend their winters.
Mrs. Snyder, who looks like a beauty contest winner, was training to be a nurse before she and Bob met. Now her career is following her husband’s and looking after cute little daughter Suretta, aged 6, and Bobbie jr., aged 7.
Wonderful Life
“Life just never has a chance to get boring when you live with a ballplayer husband,” remarked Eva Lou (Evie) Brunswick the Capilano centrefielder.
Evid says you get so excited about the games you just can’t stay away from them. Even at their parties the wives talk baseball too.
The Brunswicks have a bright little son whose ambition as you might imagine is to grow up and be a baseball star just like his dad.
Like Eileen Snyder, Evie Brunswick also started out to be a nurse. She did fashion modelling in Tacoma, Was., where the Brunswicks live when they aren’t in Vancouver.
Mary Guldborg, our blonde model, is the wife of pitcher John (Bud) Guldborg. They spend their winters in California and are enjoying their first summer in Vancouver.
All Nurses
Mary has a lot in common with the other two wives as she also is a nurse.
Now her first love is baseball. She and Bud occasionally talk about settling down, but Mary says as soon as spring training comes around they can hardly wait to get back into the life.
And it’s an exciting life, all three wives agree.
