SALEM — A run in the last half of the ninth inning gave Salem's Senators a tight 3-2 decision over the Tacoma Tigers here in the second game of their crucial league series. The result evened the series at one apiece.
Infielder Hank Bartolomei, one of Salem's two players who are to go to the Spokane Indians to help that club-rebuild its team, batted in the game-winning run with an infield single.

VICTORIA [Vancouver News-Herald, June 28]—This town’s Athletics, who once seemed doomed forever to the Western International League basemen, were contemplating seventh place today.
Their change of luck started when they were paired off with the Vancouver Capilanos, and last night, after they’d taken their seventh decision in eight starts against the Caps, 6-1, they were just a game and a half out of the number seven slot.
The Capilanos, who haven’t done a thing right in taking just two of their last 17 starts, chose the sixth inning to make their mistakes last night.
Big Hunk Anderson was toiling along nicely, pitching one-hit, shutout ball, when the A’s rallied to fill the sacks. Then Bob Paulson, newly-acquired catcher from Spokane, drove a ball into left field.
Frank Mullens lost the pellet in the lights, it went for two bases, and three men scored. Then Bob Jensen singled, Ed Murphy doubled, and Al Steele singled, and before the stanza was over, the home club was ahead 6-0.
Reg Clarkson dented Jensen’s armor for a triple in the eighth, then scored Vancouver’s only run as Steele bobbled. Jensen fanned eight and walked four; Anderson struck out six and issued seven free passes.
Vancouver ...... 000 000 010—1 5 0
Victoria .......... 000 006 00x—6 6 1
