VICTORIA—Hunk Anderson and Pete Jonas, two ex-members of the Seattle Rainiers now doing their hurling for Vancouver, pitched the Capilanos to a double win over the Victoria Athletics at Royal Athletic Park Wednesday.
Anderson limited the A's to three hits in the seven-inning opener and singled in the winning run in the seventh for a 3-2 victory over Tony Ferrara.
Jonas was given an early inning lead to notch his sixth straight triumph, 9-5 in the finale.
Walt Raimondi drove Eddie Murphy over with the first score in the third inning of the opener but the Caps put together three base hits to take a 2-1 lead in the fifth after Ferrara had held them hitless for the first four frames.
A bad throw to first base by catcher Bill Brenner allowed Bob Cherry to score from second to tie the game in the sixth but Ferrara's wildness set the stage for the winning run in the seventh. He walked Al Kretchmar and Lou Estes to open the iunning, The former was cut down at the plate on Brenner's infield roller but Anderson singled Estes over with the winner.
Doug Oliver started out in a blaze of glory for Victoria in the second game, retiring the first four batters, but walks to Charley Mead and Kretchmar in the second were followed by Lou Estes' long home run and the Caps took an early 3-0 lead.
Reg Clarkson doubled to open the third and Jim Estrada followed with another over-the-fence wallop. Oliver walked two more, gave up a single to Kretchmar and uncorked a wild pitch before Joe Blankenship was called in.
Jonas ran into trouble only in the third when Clarkson's muff on a fly ball by Blankenship set the stage for four unearned runs. Pete Hughes' home run clout over the right field wall accounted for two of them.
