VANCOUVER, May 9—Wenatchee committed eight errors but the Vancouver Capilanos did little with the gifts as the Chiefs scrambled to a 7-3 win tonight.
Joe Orrell's pitching saved the day for the winners, as he gave up only five hits and one walk. Both runs against him, not surprisingly, were unearned. Bob McLean got a triple and a double off him, Jimmy Robinson had two hits and Len Tran, one.
Vancouver's three errors were more costly, as six of the Wenatchee runs were unearned. But the team settled down in the later innings, coming up with four double-plays.
Jim Hedgecock started on the mound, but a couple of errors by the Tran brothers and four walks resulted in him pulled from the game with two on and two out in the second inning, and behind 3-1.
Hunk Anderson faired little better, issuing six walks in 5 1/3 innings.
Hal Rhyne and Nick Pesut had three hits apiece for the Chiefs.

VICTORIA, May 9—The Salem Senators bunched three runs in the fifth and five in the eighth as they defeated the Victoria Athletics, 9-2, in the first game of a four-game series.
Mel Wasley's inside-the-park home run activated the scoreboard in the second inning, then the Seantors got to Rex Jones in the fifth with a double by Bob Cheery, a triple by manager Bill Beard, and singles by Jim Wert, Buzz Sporer and Bud Peterson put three more on the board. An error by shortstop Bob Keeler set the stage for the five-run eighth.
The A's scored both their runs in the fourth inning. Vic Buccola singled and John Hack and Gil McDougald walked to load the bases. Frank Finnegan forced a runner at the plate, but Sporer then issued two more walks to Sol Israel and Bob Day to being in the runs.
Sporer shut the door after that, allowing four hits in all to pick up the win.
A's Notes — Infielder Frank Matoh will join the club from Binghamton. He played with Manchester in the Class "B" New England League last year, hitting 12 homer runs and batting in over 80. ... Outfielder Ray Jacobs is finally expected to join the team tomorrow.
