SPOKANE, Aug. 24 — The smallest crowd of the season turned out Sunday night to see Spokane put on their biggest inning of the season as they split the four-game Western International league Lewiston series by downing the Broncs 15-4 in the final contest.
About 200 fans watched 15 Indians whoop to the plate in the fourth inning as Spokane added to their four-run lead with 10 big counters. Four Lewiston pitchers paraded to the mound, and three to the showers, in the frantic fourth.
Bronc centerfielder Artie Wilson connected with four of the 11 scattered hits given up by winning Pitcher John Conant.
Spokane's battering third baseman Sam Kanelos led the Indian attack with a triple, double and single in his first three trips, followed by two walks and one ground-out Slammin' Sam also batted in three Tribe runs.

KENNEWICK, Aug. 24 — The Tri-City Braves boomed out with a four-run fifth inning Sunday to defeat the Wenatchee Chiefs, 7-6, and sweep the four-game Western International League series.
Four singles and Tom Marier's two-run double gave the Braves all the runs they needed in the big fifth.
Wenatchee jumped off with two runs in the first on Ross McCormack's double, a walk, a wild pitch by George New and Bud Hjelmaa's single. Tri-City swarmed back with three in the third. Des Charouhas' two-run triple the big blow.
The Chiefs tried to come back after Tri-City's four-run fifth, but every try fell short. The Chiefs got three, in the sixth on singles and three walks and another in the eighth on an error and a single.
New, who was lifted for Ad Satalich in the fifth, was the winner.
