WENATCHEE — Defeating the Wenatchee Chiefs 8 to 7 here Tuesday night the Salem Senators notched their 12th straight Western International league baseball against no defeats, tying the opening win mark set by Yakima in 1938.
But Salem did it the hard way. They were trailing 7 to 2 going into the fourth inning. Then in the eighth, behind 7 to 3, Henry Bartolomei hit a home run with no one aboard. Carney walked, was advanced by George Vico's single, and both scored on a Wenatchee error. Later Carney got on base through an error and scored the winning run on Crawford's fly to left field.
Chuck Cronin held Salem to five hits in eight innings, but three of them were homers by Bartolomei, Woody Salmon and Vico. Dick Adams homered for Wenatchee.
Salem ........... 000 210 140—8 6 1
Wenatchee .... 032 200 000—7 11 4

TACOMA — The Tacoma Tigers outlasted the Bremerton Bluejackets by coming from behind in the last of the ninth to win their league debut before the home folks Tuesday, 11 to 10.
Relief hurler Gene Holt of Bremerton walked two men and hit another to fill the bases. He was relieved by Bill Kostenbader who was greeted with a double to right by Bob Hedington and the winning runs scampered across.
The attendance of 4,850 was the league's highest opening-day figure.
Bremerton at one time led 7-3 mainly because of two homers over the left field wall by opening pitcher ray Medeghini. He drove in five runs in all. The Tigers tied it in the sixth and went ahead in the seventh on Roy Peterson's circuit clout.
Both teams counted once in the eighth, and in the ninth, pinch-hitter Bill Barisoff homered with one on to put the Jackets in front. Southpaw Holt got the first batter before his control blew, and the Tigers swarmed in.
The loss dropped Sam Sad Gibsons's Bremerton squad into a three-way tie with Yakim and Vancouver.
Bremerton ......... 021 040 012—10 14 1
Tacoma ............ 020 113 112—11 16 4
Medeghini, C. Federmeyer (6), Holt (9), Kostenbader (9) and Volpi; Colombo, Jungbluth (7) and Kemper.

Victoria at Yakima — postponed (rain).

Cap Janicek Heads South
VANCOUVER, May 7—Vancouver baseball fans have caught their last glimpse of one-time left-handed thinking Lou (Tex) Janicek, nee Goldman.
Janicek was returned to the parent Seattle Rainiers yesterday by the Capilanos, who immediately farmed him to Gadsden in the Southwestern League. Thus room as been made for Hunk Anderson. The twirler will join the team in Tacoma Friday.
