VICTORIA—18-year-old Alex Palica surrendered only four singles as the Vancouver Capilanos handed a 14-0 whitewashing to the Victoria A's Wednesday night.
He was never in serious trouble except in the eighth, when the A's loaded the bags with two out. He got out of that when catcher Bill Brenner scooped up a low grounder and threw to first.
John Carpenter started for the A's and stuck around until the fourth when he left in the middle of a five-run rally. He failed to receive the support of his batterymate as Bob Paulson allowed Ray Orteig to go from first to third when he kicked the ball back to the mound after dropping a pitch. Carpenter was replaced by Tommy Musgrave, who went out in the ninth when a line drive from the bat of Charlie Mead literally hit him on the pitching arm and knocked him out of the contest. Only two of the seven runs against him were unearned.
Jim Estrada, Vancouver shortstop, led the hitters with four singles in six trips, while Reggie Clarkson contributed a triple and a double.
Victoria's six errors translated into seven unearned runs. The A's shortstop, Bill Dunn, completed the sad showing by being bounced by Umpire Hughie Day after an argument about a decision at first base.
