Saturday, July 31, 1948

WENATCHEE, July 31—Frank Logue made it four straight route-going performances for Victoria's much-maligned pitching staff at Wenatchee tonight. The smooth-throwing side-wheeler held the Chiefs to seven hits and didn't let four errors bother him as he gained his ninth victory in the 14-3 pasting the A's stuck on the Chiefs.
Only Bill Wilson caused him any trouble. The league leader in home runs hit two of them to account for all of Wenatchee's runs.
The A's landed 16 hits on a trio of Wenatchee hurlers. Lou Kubiak blasted a bases-loaded triple and two singles to account for four runs. Archie Wilson chipped in with his 19th home run, a double and a single. Five other Victorians chipped in with two hits.
Victoria .......... 044 024 000—14 16 4
Wenatchee ..... 200 000 010—3 7 4
Logue and Recca; Rose, McCollum (3), Gardner (7) and Gardner, Dalrymple (7).

BREMERTON, July 31—Bremerton's leading Bluejackets edged the Yakima Packers, 3-2, as Joe Sullivan gained his ninth win. The triumph increased the Tars' first-place margin to 3½ games over Tacoma and Victoria.
Yakima ........... 020 000 000—2 4 2

Kramer and Constantino; Sullivan, Conant (7) and Ronning.

TACOMA, July 31—The Tacoma Tigers dropped their second straight to the Salem Senators tonight, 5-4. Bob Stevenson went the route and tripled in the winning, fifth-inning rally to aid his own cause.
Salem .......... 000 230 000—5 10 2
Tacoma ....... 010 100 020—4 10 3
Stevenson and Burgher; Lazor, Gleason (8), Venturelli (9) and Rossi.

VANCOUVER, July 31—Four runs in the eighth, aided by umpire Bill Abbey, gave the Spokane Indians a 5-4 decision over the Vancouver Capilanos in the first of two Saturday games here. Vancouver won the second, 4-2, with a three-run seventh.
The Caps had a three-run rally in the eighth inning of the first game, thanks to homers by Jack Warren and Charlie Mead, but couldn 't catch up and Jim Hedgecock took the loss, his first of the season.
The three-run inning in the second game was a little luckier. Sandy Robertson, playing in left field, opened the inning with his second hit and Bob Costello worked John Cordell for a walk. Hits by Len Tran and Joe Kaney, the latter's third of the show, and a wild pitch added up to three runs.
First game
Spokane ........... 000 100 040—5 10 2
Vancouver ........ 000 001 030—4 10 1
Werbowski, Nelson (8) and Gibb; Hedgecock and Brenner.
