VANCOUVER, Aug. 19—Jim Estrada smashed a three-run homer and Charley Mead added a two-run shot as the Vancouver Capilanos won a WIL slugfest over the Bremerton Bluejackets Monday night.
Reg Clarkson unloaded the bases with a sharp single to left.
Bill Barisoff homered for the Bluejackets. It was his 36th of the season, one short of Morry Abbott's 1940 record with Tacoma. It came after former Vancouver catcher Frank Volpi found a pitch to his liking and parked it over short right field in the sixth inning.
Hunk Anderson picked up his 11th win while Beak Federmeyer took the loss.

VANCOUVER [Dan Ekman, News-Herald, August 20]—It’s a heady thing to dwell upon, but if first-night progress means anything, the Capilanos may be on their way to another week of ladder-climbing W.I.L. lay. Hot off their five-for-six performance last week, the Caps opened a seven-game stint against Bremerton Monday night at the Stadium, and came out on top of a 9-6 count.
It was Victory No. 11 for long Hunk Anderson, and although his earned-run average suffered somewhat, his mates contributed enough solid support to keep the tall Capilano ace unworried all the way.
Not even two round-trippers—by Frank Volpi and Bill Barisoff—fazed the locals. Barisoff’s, by the way, was his 36th of the season, leaving him just one short of the all-time league record, set by Morry Abbott of Tacoma.
As a matter of fact, those big Bremerton blows were nothing more than imitation, for earlier on, Jim Estrada and Charlie Mead had done the same for Bluejacket hurler Beak Federmeyer. Those fence-busting efforts came in the fourth inning, at which time five other Caps hit safely to rack up seven runs.
That timely grouping won the ball game for the Brownies, for as it turned out, the Jackets wound up with exactly the same number of hits—fifteen. But outside of their home-run innings, the only other canto in which they were able to string together more than a couple of safeties at a time was the third. In that frame, Federmeyer and Devaurs singled, and Eddie Curtis rapped out a double, the combo of which being good for a brace of runs.
Every player on both clubs hit safety at least once, with no less than six of the Caps getting a pair. One of these, as if you didn’t know, was Ray Orteig. But the guy proved he’s just a flash in the pan—for the second successive game, Ray failed to hit for the circuit.
