TACOMA, June 27—Tacoma staked Victoria to a 3-0 lead after seven innings then scored all their runs in a 4-3 victory over the Athletics tonight.
Jack Warren doubled home the winning run in the ninth, bringing his league-leading RBI total to 70.
The A's reached Lazor for nine hits but could not provide Tobey Tobias with a big enough winning margin. Charlie Balassi, Bob Day and Frank Finnegan figured in all the scoring. Each of the trio singled as the A's pushed over one in the second inning, while Balassi tripled, Day doubled and Finnegan singled for two more runs in the sixth.
The Tigers tied it in the eighth when Tobey Tobias walked the first two batters, gave up an RBI single to Dick Greco and was replaced by Frank Logue. A walk, a single and an error allowed two more runs to score before Logue could retire the side.
Victoria ........... 010 002 000—3 9 2
Tacoma .......... 000 000 031—4 9 0
Tobias, Logue (8) and Day; Lazor and Warren.

YAKIMA, June 27—Lloyd Dickey and Dick Drilling teamed on the mound to famish the Wenatchee Chiefs on three hits for Yakima's 11-5 victory. Dickey, who hurled eight-plus innings, looks better than the fourth of July in the linescore, but he was wilder than New Year's Eve. He walked 15 and he was removed in the ninth when he stacked the sacks on passes.
Ray Orteig, Yakima's third baseman, poled a three-run homer off Cy Greenlaw in the fourth.
Wenatchee ........... 000 100 020—3 3 1
Yakima ................. 032 600 00x—11 9 2
Caplinger, Greenlaw (4) and Winter; Dickey, D. Drilling (9) and Tornay.

SALEM, June 27—Dick Bishop unreeled a nifty six-hitter as Spokane picked off Salem, 5-0. The Tribe got off to a three-run lead in the opening frame on a walk, singles by Paul Zaby, Larry Barton and Jack Parks, and an outfield fly by Tuck Stainback. Three Spokane double plays amputated as many incipent Senator rallies.
Spokane .......... 300 020 300—8 10 2
Salem ............. 000 000 000—0 6 1
Bishop and Parks; Sciarra, Osborn (6) and Beard.
