VANCOUVER, June 10—Smashing through for ten runs in the last two innings, the W.I.L.-leading Yakima Bears trounced the Vancouver Capilanos, 14-5, tonight.
The game was tied, 4-4, when the Bears knocked out Jim Hedgecock in the midst of a four-run eighth inning.. Gene Petralli opened with a single and Nino Tornay doubled a run in. Hedgecock was pulled in favour of Bob Snyder, who gave up three more singles and a walk to allow all the runs.
Things got worse in the ninth. Dick Briskey doubled and Petralli fouled out, but the Bears slashed out another single and double before Edo Vanni grounded out by that time, Snyder was out and Hunk Anderson was in, but he faired no better, giving up four hits and three more runs.
Catcher Nini Tornay was the big gun in Yakima's 22-hit, poling out two home runs, a double and two singles in six trips. Ray Orteig had a homer amongst his five hits and Snag Moore added another one for the Bears.
