YAKIMA, Apr. 30—The Victoria Athletics pounded out 11 hits in a 9-6 win over the Yakima Bears in a game shortened to five innings because of rain.
The weather probably saved the home club from a worse defeat as Victoria had scored five runs in the top of the sixth and Yakima was at bat and the deluge set it. The umpires waited the required 30 minutes before wiping out the rest of the inning and the game.
Victoria ...... 203 40—9 11 2
Yakima ....... 011 04—6 9 3

TACOMA, Apr. 30—Spokane's Bill Werbowski spooned out seven hits while his mates rapped two Tacoma hurlers for 13 safeties, bunching enough of them for four runs in the sixth inning in a 5-1 win. A double by George Valine and a triple by Werbowski were the big blows, each driving in two runs. Tuck Stainback's double and a single by Ken Richardson plated the other Spokane run in the first.

Indians Park About Ready
SPOKANE, Apr. 30—They'll sit, but will they eat?
That's the prospect now for Spokane ball fans when they delve at the Indians new grandstand layout for the first Western International League game at home.
The Indian business office said the stands are rapidly nearing completion and there will be plenty of sitting room even in the face of a possible strike by carpenters.
A builders strike could delay completion of concession stands which will furnish the fans with their food and drink.
The new stands are of a pre-cut construction—wooden seats on a steel pipe foundation. The new plant is being put up without a roof to have it read for the first home game May 10.
