SALEM, July 19—The Victoria Athletics jumped on Hal Saltzman for four runs in the first innings and coasted to a 6-1 win over the Salem Senators tonight.
Singles by Vic Buccola, Jack Palmer, Archie Wilson, Babe Jensen and Dick Morgan did the early damage as Saltzman lasted only 2-3rds of an inning.
Two Salem errors, Charlie Balassi's double and another hit by Palmer accounted for the other two runs in the fifth.
The host Oregonians made their only tally in the sixth when they bunched four of their seven blows off Bill Harmsen. Doug Sinovic singled in Al Spaeter.
Harmsen finally picked up his first win of the season after three defeats.
