VANCOUVER, July 10—Vancouver Capilanos tonight came from behind in the last half of the twelfth inning to edge the leading Tacoma Tigers 6-5. Tigers took the afternoon half of the double-header 8-5.
Glen Stetter's fourth hit of the game — a 350-foot home run — in the first half of the 12th gave Tacoma a 5-4 lead.
But Vancouver wasn't done. Sandy Robertson and pinch-hitter Bill Brenner walked and Vince Lazor replaced Ken Clary on the mound. Lazor hit Len Tran. That brought up Joe Kaney, who fouled a couple of pitches before banging a single to centre to score Robertson and pinch-runner Carl Gunnarson to win the game.
Clary was charged with the loss. Bob Costello went the route for Vancouver.
Jim Gleason started for Tacoma in the afternoon game and was the winning pitcher although relieved by Manager Jim Brillheart in the sixth inning. Frank Higgins started for Vancouver but was knocked out in the third inning and relieved by Larry Manier.

VICTORIA, July 10—Bremerton Bluejackets spoiled Victoria's plans for a series sweep by taking advantage of errors in an 11-4 victory over the Athletics in the second game of a Saturday double-header.
Victoria won the opener, 4-1.
The Athletics got to John Conant for four early runs , but it was a different story from then on.

Sal Recca homered to begin the scoring in the second. A two singles and a sacrifice scored a run in the third, while Archie Wilson's double, a hit batsman, passed ball, a walk, a bunt and a fielder's choice sent in two in the fourth. Single runs scored in the fifth and sixth.

Packers Add Trio
YAKIMA, Wash., July 10—In a determined effort to lift the Yakima Packers out of the Western International League cellar, Dick Richards, Packer business manager, announced the acquisition of three new players last night.
Pitcher Bob Pirack was traded to Bremerton for Snag Moore, third baseman, and Catcher Joe Paglia, who was with the Jackets in 1946. It was a straight trade deal and no money was involved, said Richards.
The Packers also signed Wally Kramer, a free agent, who won six and lost seven with Spokane last season. Kramer, who is from Toppenish, Wash., was the mainstay on the Washington State College, northern division champions last season.
