WENATCHEE, Sept. 9—Wenatchee's Chiefs exploded for four runs in the seventh inning here Friday night to defeat the Vancouver Capilanos 9-6, in the third game of the Western International league playoffs.
First baseman Clint Cameron of the Chiefs collected two homers and catcher Nick Pesut knocked a pair of doubles to lead the 15-hit Wenatchee attack.
Righthander Joe Orrell was credited with the win and Jim Hedgecock was charged with the loss. Incidentally, Hedgecock climbed the mound moments after being informed that his wife had entered a Vancouver hospital to have a baby.
Vancouver now leads 2 to 1 in the best-of-five-game series that continues here Saturday night.
Vancouver ........ 030 020 001—6 12 1

SPOKANE, Sept. 9—The Spokane Indians turned back the Yakima Bears 16 to 15 Friday night in the third game of their Western International league baseball playoff series.
Yakima came from behind with three runs in the top of the ninth on Ted Jennings' bases-loaded double but saw their lead disappear as relief pitcher Gene Babbitt was unable to hold the Indians in the bottom half of the inning. A walk to Lyle Palmer and singles by Edo Vanni, Paul Zaby and George Valine produced the tying and winning runs.
The Bears won the first two games. Yakima could have ended the series with a win Friday night.
Yakima ....... 004 500 303—15 17 3
