WENATCHEE, May 8—The Victoria Athletics made it three in a row for the first time this season tonight when they pounded out a 15-10 decision over the Chiefs in a wild Western International League game here.
Al Goot, who had looked good in his two relief chores, was given the starting assignment for the A's but was unable to last through the second inning, although his teammates opened up with a six-run outburst. Joe Blankenship came in and staggered through to get the victory.
With the score 7-5 at the end of three frames in favour of the A's, the Victorians took advantage of some of the eight Wenatchee errors to pile in four runs in the fourth and add two more in each of the sixth and seventh. Losers counted five runs in the last three innings to close the gap to five runs.
Bases on balls played a prominent part in the Victoria scoring. One of the hitting stars of the night was the ailing Lou Kubiak, who came through with two clutch hits in the first and fourth innings to spark big rallies. Infielder Jack Palmer worked the whole game behind the plate for the winners, who lost both of their receivers through injury Friday night.

SALEM, May 8—The Salem Senators swept a Saturday double-header from the Vancouver Capilanos, 3-2 and 2-0, with Vince Lazor tossing a three-hitter in the seven-inning opener.
Carl Gunnarson wild-pitched in the winning run as Salem scored twice in the seventh.
In the second game, the Senators got both their runs in the fifth inning to break a pitching duel between Hal Saltzman and Jim Olson. Saltzman allowed only four singles, but took the loss.
