SALEM [Vancouver News-Herald, June 30]—Vancouver Capilanos’ scheduled game at Salem was rained out Saturday, but nothing so fortunate happened Sunday night.
Senators took the Caps out to their wet, muddy park and handed the Vancouver boys a pair of defeats in a twi-night doubleheader.
Score in the first game was 8-1 and the second was 7-5.
Capilanos come home today and will open a doubleheader Dominion Day against Yakima Bears at Cap Stadium. Game time in the afternoon will be 2:30 with the evening encounter going at 8:15.
Ed Locke was the loser last night in the first game and it knocked his season’s record to 6-6. He went all the way and gave up 12 big hits.
Caps themselves were able to pick up 10 off winning pitcher Ray McNulty, but they were spaced well enough for only one run.
Caps’ lone run was scored in the second inning by Gordie Brunswick. He singled and was brought home on successive singles by Ray Tran and Jesse Williams.
Salem’s Bill Spaeter and Bob Nelson led the opposition with three hits each and each drove in three runs.
[It was McNulty's ninth win against seven losses.]
Van Fletcher started the second [game] but gave up in the sixth with the score 5-4 for Caps to Bob Snyder.
[Vancouver looked good for awhile, taking a one-run lead in the second inning when Locke singled it in, and stretching it to four in the fourth when Gordie Brunswick tripling in two then scoring on Locke's single. One in the sixth on an error made it 5-2, Salem having tallied in the fifth.
Then six hits and an error in the bottom of the sixth gave Salem five runs, the ball game and the series.
Salem plays an exhibition with Sacramento at 8:15 p.m. on Monday.]
