VANCOUVER, May 11—Len Tran's 370-foot triple with two men on base in the seventh inning broke a 1-1 tie as the Vancouver Capilanos went on to defeat the Wenatchee Chiefs, 7-1 tonight.
Tran scored as Charlie Mead singled him in.
Wenatchee opened the scoring when Hal Rhyne smashed a ball over the left field wall that hit a light pole and bounced back into the park. It was correctly ruled a home run by umpire Max Skulik.

The lights entered into play again in the eighth when the Caps had another rally going, and scored twice. Rickey Fernandez was at the plate with none out and the bases loaded.

Peterson lasted until he lost control in the seventh and Victoria added its final markers on McDougald's second double, Finnegan's single, a fielder's choice and two walks.
Bob Cherry drove in seven of Salem's runs.
