SALEM, June 12 — Salem's Senators racked up their sixth consecutive win over Victoria here tonight, 6-2, to maintain their Western International league leadership.
Big George Vico led the 11-hit Solon attack with two singles and a three-run homer which climaxed a Salem rally in the fifth that salted the game away. Vico's singles figured in both the Solons' other scores.
Victoria scored an unearned run in the first on Al Steele's single, a stolen base, an error and an outfield fly by Pete Hughes. They added another in the third on successive doubles by Bob Cherry and Beans Marionetti.
Salem counted first in the fourth inning on walks, Vico's hit and Hank Souza's long fly. In the fifth hank Bartolomei walked, moved to second on a sacrifice, and scored on Lou Kubiak's one-baser. Duane Crawford followed with a single, Vern Reynolds was out, and Vic parked one out of the lot. In the eighth, singles by Reynolds, Hal Summers and Souza brought in the third and final tally.
For Salem, lefty Ken Wyatt went the route and gave up but five hits.
Victoria ....... 101 000 000—2 5 3

WENATCHEE [Vancouver News-Herald, June 13]—Southpaw Jim Hedgecock, who is fast gaining a reputation as the unluckiest man in the league—or at least on the Capilanos—kept up his average last night.
The spirited left-hander ran into Hugh Orphan, back on the Wenatchee mound after being out of action for six weeks, and was beaten 7-4 as Orphan allowed the Brownies just four safeties. The loss evened the series at one game apiece, the Caps winning the opener in 13 innings.
Orphan kept the Capilano hitters, who have been hitting the ball pretty hard as of late, very well in hand, giving up singles to Al Kretchmar, Lou Estes and Bill Brenner, plus a double to Cleve Ramsey, and striking out 10.
His support deserted him in the seventh, when the visitors sent three runs across, second-baseman Haskell booting two, two walks, and Brenner’s single completing the damage.
STETTER HITS HARD
Hedgecock, who walked eight and struck out seven, had his biggest trouble with Glen Stetter, the Chiefs’ shortstop. Stetter slammed out two home runs and a double to account for three runs.
Big Hunk Anderson will probably toe the mound for Vancouver tonight in an attempt to give Syl’s squad an edge in the seven-game series. Anderson has won five and lost two so far.
Vancouver .......... 000 100 300—4 4 1
