SPOKANE, July 5 — A 15-hit barrage by Yakima blanked the improvised Spokane Indians 10 to 0 Friday night in a Western International league baseball contest.
The Stars connected for 11 hits and nine runs off Al Raimondi in the first five innings and got four more hits and another run off Wally Mehrens to take their third straight victory since the Indians resumed baseball after losing most of the team in a bus crash.
Yakima ........... 013 230 100—10 15 0

TACOMA, July 5 — Seventeen year old Richie Colombo twirled 4-hit ball and his Tacoma mates hammered out 13 hits, including a pair of homers, as the Tigers scored a 6 to 1 victory over the Vancouver Capilanos in their league baseball game.
The young righthander pitched hitless ball for the last six frames and the lone damaging Vancouver blow of the evening was Frank Mullen's third-inning homer with the bases empty. That was the last hit the teenager allowed.
The Tacomans, meanwhile, were making hay at the expense of Cap manager Eddie Carnett, who was tagged for 13 hits and all six runs in the sx plus innings he worked in his second appearance on the mound.
The trouble started early. Bob Joratz met Carnett with a first inning home run and the Tigers added a second run in the first on Tom Sustak's double and two wild pitches.
Bob Hedinton provided the second brace when he smacked a third-inning round-tripper with Chuck Clifford on base. An error and Morry Abbott's single produced the fifth run, and the Tigers collected still another on a single and a sacrifice.
Vancouver ......... 001 000 000—1 4 4
Tacoma ............ 202 001 10x—6 13 2

SALEM, July 5 — Salem's Senators were within two percentage points of the loop-leading Wenatchee Chiefs following their 7-4 win over the pace-setters here. The Senators slugged two Chief hurlers for 12 hits including a three-run home run by Woody Salmon, his second in two days.
The circuit wallop put Salmon's runs-batted-in total at eight for two games.

BREMERTON, July 5 — Bremerton won a 1 to 0 baseball victory over Victoria for its second straight shut-out victory over the Athletics and a five to two lead in their current series.
Hub Kittle, who had yielded only one run in his last 17 innings on the mound, gave up only two hits in winning with airtight fielding support.
The lone run came in the eighth when Bill Reese doubled, went to third after an outfield fly and continued when centre fielder Eddie Murphy, who got both of Victoria's hits, threw wild to third.
Victoria ......... 000 000 000—0 2 1
Bremerton ..... 000 000 01x—1 3 0
