VANCOUVER, July 11—Gulping victories like a camel swilling water, the Victoria Athletics guzzled their 10th Western International league victory in the last dozen trips to the trough with a 6-0 decision over the second place Vancouver Capilanos tonight.
It was the first time in 83 games the Caps had been shut out.
Jim Propst fashioned a six-hitter in the first game of a week-long home-and-home series. He struck out 13 and walked six to raise his record to 8-2. The biggest threat he faced was in the ninth when Vancouver loaded the bases on walks but he got a called third strike on Len Tran to end the game.
The A's hopped on Vern Kindsfather for three runs in the second on Gil McDougald's single, consecutive doubles by Len Noren and John Hack, and Propst's single. Vic Buccola's homer in the third made it 4-0, and he made it 5-0 when he doubled in Charlie Balassi in the seventh.
The A's finished scoring in the eighth when Hack walked, moved ahead on a fielder's choice and came in on Len Tran's error.
Umpire Max Skulik tossed Victoria catcher Bob Day in the sixth for tossing his cap after a called third strike.
The A's surged into a fifth-place tie with the idle Salem Senators. The rest of the league played pinochle, except the Spokane Indians who barbecued the House of David, 12-7, before 5,310 whisker-watchers, the fourth-largest crowd of the year at Ferris Field.
Victoria ............. 031 000 110—6 10 0
Vancouver ......... 000 000 000—0 6 2
Propost and Day, Morgan (6); Kindsfather and Brenner.
