VANCOUVER, July 10—Vancouver Capilanos could only gain a half game on the Yakima Bears as they game back to take the nightcap, 6-5, from Bremerton.
John Marshall stopped the Caps in the opener, 7-3, for his 17th victory.
Bob Snyder and Dick Sinovic salvaged the nightcap. Sinovic duplicated his feat of Friday night when he banged out a hit with one out in the last of the ninth to drive in the winning run. In fact, he hit it to the exact same spot.
Snyder came into the game when George Nicholas appeared in trouble in the third inning. He gave up seven hits the rest of the way and only one run to chalk up his 14th victory of the year.
Nicholas gave up seven hits and four runs earlier and would have been in a worse situation if it hadn't been for two Capilano double plays.
In the opener, Marshall gave up nine hits, walked three and struck out three. One of the hits was a solo homer run by Len Tran.
Walt Pocekay homered and had two singles for Bremerton accounting for three runs, and Charlie Bushong laced two doubles and two singles, as the Tars built up a 5-0 lead after they had batted in the third.
Caps' note — Centre fielder Henry Fernandez has been sold to Sherman of the Texas State League. He had been playing well until an injury benched him and Dick Sinovic took his place in the outfield.
