VANCOUVER, Aug. 12—Cal Mclrvin picked his 14th pitching win of the year for Salem in blanking Vancouver, 6-0, tonight.
A two-run homer by Ralph Samhammer over the right field wall in the fourth and another smash by Ed Barr off the top of the fence ín the sixth gave the Oregonians an early lead.
Four Cap miscues added to the cause. Charlie Mead dropped a fly ball near the boards in the eighth and Jack Warren dropped a relay from second on an attempted double steal in the same frame. And with three hits, three runs came in.
Rookie Vern Kindsfather was the only bright spot for Vancouver. H ewent in to relieve Jim Hedgecock in the eighth inning and struck out Bill Burgher to end the inning. In the ninth, he struck out two and fielded the ball to retire the third. He also got his first hit in organised ball, the last one surrendered by McIrvin.

VICTORIA, Aug 12—Frank Logue ran his personal winning streak to eight games and marked up his 12th triumph of the season against four defeats by pitching the Victoria Athletics to a 2-1 win over the Yakima Packers tonight.
The side-wheeler's effective curve was working well as he gave up eight hits and struck out nine. Only two batters gave him trouble. Larry Orteig had a perfect night at the plate with a double and three singles — half of the Packers' total — and rookie Bob Burris coaxed him for three of the four walks he gave up.
Bob Drilling went the route for the Packers and gave up seven singles with Archie Wilson picking up three of the hits. Wilson cut off the tying run at the plate in the sveenth inning when he threw a strike to Sal Recca from centre field to catch Orteig by ten feet.
The A's opened the scoring with an unearned run in the first inning. With two out, Jack Palmer was hit by a pitch and went to third on Wilson's single. Babe Jensen hit a grounder to Snag Moore at third and was safe when Gene Thompson couldn't find the bag with Palmer crossing the plate for the first run.
The Packers evened the count in the fourth on Jimmy Estrada's single off Lou Kubiak's outstretched glove, a walk and Orteig's double.
The A's gained their winning margin in the fifth when Vic Buccola singled, was sacrificed to second and scored on Palmer's hard single to left field.
Yakima ......... 000 100 000—1 8 2
Victoria ........ 100 010 00x—2 7 0
