Chiefs Out Of Playoffs
WENATCHEE, Sept. 10—Len Tran, Vancouver second baseman, eliminated the Wenatchee
Chiefs from the Western International League play-offs here tonight with a three-run 11th inning homer over the center field wall. Vancouver won, 8-7.
The ball game was all tied at the end of nine innings at five all.
Wenatchee's Clint Cameron and Hal Rhyne hit consecutive homers in the bottom half of the 11th for the Chiefs but that wasn't enough.
Wenatchee started out with one run in the first and fourth inning while holding the Caps scoreless. In the fifth frame the Caps cut loose with four base blows and two walks and one Wenatchee boot for five runs and to take the lead at 5-2.
Wenatchee came back in the seventh inning to score three runs on two walks and one double. It chased starter Vern Kindsfather and brought in Carl Gunnaron, who left the game after the ninth. Hunk Anderson worked the last two innings for the win, while Lou McCollum suffered the loss.
The win will pit the Capilanos against the Yakima-Spokane winner next week.
