VANCOUVER, May 13—Ray McNulty, who spent part of last season with Wenatchee as a catcher, third baseman and first baseman, pitched a two-hitter as the Salem Senators opened their series here against the Vancouver Capilanos with a 5-1 win.
Charlie Mead poked a single to right field in the fourth and Bob McLean scratched one out to first base in the eighth.
McNulty walked three and struck out one. He also hit Bud Sheely, who went around on McLean's hit and Jim Robinson's fielder's choice.
Vern Kindsfather started for Vancouver and got through the first two innings without any damage. But in the third, a pair of walks and four hits translated into four runs. George Nicholas was brought in to relieve and struck out Bill Beard to end the inning.
Len Tran was held hitless for the first time this year.

VICTORIA, May 13—Gil McDougald's triple in the tenth inning brought in the winning run as Victoria outlasted Wenatchee in extra frames for the second straight night, 8-7.
McDougald's triple, his third hit of the night, came after Vic Buccola walked.
The A's were ahead 7-2 at the end of the sixth, but Larry Ward got into trouble in the next inning. Two men were on the bags as the result of walks when Haskell singled to load them, and Faber doubled down the left-field foul line to empty them. Hal Rhyne and Nick Pesut singled before manager Ted Norbert brought in Frank Logue.
Logue gave up a single to Neil Bryant, sending over Rhyne to tie the game. A walk to Jim Warner loaded the bases again, but Clint Cameron popped up to end the inning.
Logue was pulled out of trouble in the ninth and tenth with double plays. After Sol Israel flew out to start the Victoria tenth, Buccola walked. Lou McCollum then came in from the bullpen to face McDougald, who parked the ball in right-centre field to send the 1,500 fans home happy.
