Caps Score Upset Over Yakima

Vancouver drew first blood in the finals of the playoff by pushing across four runs in the second inning on five hits. Yakima picked up a run in the bottom half of the
second and pushed ahead with four more runs in the fourth frame on three hits and errors by Dick Sinovic, Len Tran and Charlie Mead.
