WENATCHEE, April 21—The Vancouver Capilanos scored four runs in the tenth inning then held off a Wenatchee rally in overcoming the Chiefs, 12-11, tonight.
The Chiefs held a two-run lead until the sixth inning when three hits and five walks provided five Vancouver scores. Wenatchee scored two in their half of the inning, but with the Caps adding single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth frames, Wenatchee went into the last of the ninth, trailing 4-3. Then, with two men out, two hits and three walks tied the game.
In the first of the tenth, Vancouver matched Wenatchee's four runs, their scoring coming on two singles, two walks and an error, but Wenatchee's three runs in the last of the inning were a run short.
Relief pitcher Alex Klubnickin walked three Wenatchee batters in the tenth and before he was hauled, three runs had scored. Frank Higgins came in reire the side and no further damage was done.
Bill Brenner had five RBIs, going three for five with a double.
Higgins picked up the win, Bruce, the loss.
Caps notes: Further pitching strength comes to the Capilanos tomorrow in the large person of Hal Saltzman, sent by the Rainiers on option. The righthander was with the local club at the end of last season, winning three and losing two.
To make room for him, the Caps have sent pitcher Bob White to Great Falls.
