The aroused Chiefs came back in the second game to pound out a 10-2 victory, making good use of ten hits and sending John Marshall down to defeat. Their four runs broke a scoreless streak of 29 innings. The Tars won three games in a row, 2-0.

The Caps had a six-run assault in the eighth inning to go ahead, after trailing 8-4. With one out, Len Tran dumped a three-run homer over the right wall. Joe Kaney flew out and Frank Mullens lofted a fly that would have the rally. But right fielder Bus McMillan lost the ball and the game was tied.

Salem attempted to make a comeback in the ninth. reliever Sandy Robertson got the first two out, but walked Mel Nunes who scored on Bill Burgher's ringing double to left centre. But he personally tossed out pitcher Olson to end the game after intentionally walking McMillan.
Bob Snyder received credit for his sixth win, despite socking him for a dozen blows in eight innings and ganging five of those for as many runs in the third inning.

VICTORIA, June 23—A wild pitch by Bob Drilling with the bases filled in the tenth inning brought in the winning run as the Victoria Athletics shaded the Yakima Packers, 7-6, in a Western International League thriller here tonight.
The A's gave up an unearned run in the tenth to put the Packers in front, then scored twice to give reliever Joe Blankenship his tenth win and sixth straight.
The Packers tallied once in the first without the aid of a base hit and tied the score in the second at 2-2 after Lou Kubiak put the A's in front with his first home run of the season with Charlie Blassi on base.
Archie Wilson's long fly scored Kubiak in the third to make it 3-2, but Yakima squared the count in the fourth. Wilson led off the sixth with a long triple to right field and scored on Babe Jensen's fly to put the Athletics ahead. Singled by Sal Recca, and Balassi, Bill Harmsen's sacrifice and Kubiak's infield out added another run in the seventh.
The Packers drove Harmsen from the box in the ninth, the first two batters reaching second and third on singles and Wilson's error. Ray French's single drove in both runners to score but Blankenship got out of the inning with a double play.
Bob Pirack, who relieved Bill Freeman, retired in favour of Drilling, after giving up a single to Kubiak and a double to Jack Palmer in the tenth. Wilson then beat out an infield hit to load the sacks and Jensen bounced a single through short to tie the score. With Morgan at the plate and the bases still loaded, Drilling uncorked a wild pitch and Palmer came in from third to send 1,900 fans home happy.
