Coast league game. The win gave
Portland u 2-0 edge in the series
and left them in third place.
Spokane outhit the Beavers 11 7
and nearly pulled the game out of
the fire in the last three innings.

l.oir was Chris Nicolosi, who

by Milt Graff and Clem Moore
and a double by Charlie Secrest.
The Beavers scored what prov
ed to be the winning run in the
second frame when Dave Melton

Vancouver's Mounties barged
into a tie with them for the top
ring last night by sweeping a
double header from Seattle while
the Sues succumbed to the wiles
of George Perez, the spell binder
from Salt Lake City.
Vancouncer bounced the cellar-
grown Seattle Rainiers. 8-6 and
8-1, for a brace of convincing
wins. Perez, who threw a no-hit
ter by Sacramento earlier this sea
son, subdued them with three sing
les this time, 3-0.
In other PCL action, Phoenix
outslugged San Diego, 9-7.
Mounties Tee" Off
The Mounties teed off on Seat
tle pitching for 18 blows in the
nightcap last night while Charles
Estrada was muzzling the Suds
with a four-hitter. A home run
and a triple by Vancouver's Ruy
Barker kept the assault going
against loser Bob Marie and lefty
John McCall who replaced him in
the eighth inning.
The opener was a rugged affair
in which Seattle manager Alan
Strange vainly sent four hurlers
out to stem the assault. A five run
blast in the fifth inning gave the
Rainiers a 6-3 lead but Vancouver
exploded for five tallies of Its own
in the seventh to win it.
A three-run homer by Joe Fraz
ier was the big blow of the frame.
Carroll Hardy, the ex-pro football
er, hit a grand slummer in vain
for Seattle. Connie Johnson got his
sixth win for Vancouver in a re
lief role while Bill Kennedy, anoth

Speciality For Perez
Perez, who specializes in beat
ing Sacramento, gave up three
singles while going the distance

its scoring in the second. A bases

Barone then greeted reliefer Noel
Mickelson with a two run single.
Ben Valenzuela socked a three

his sound game.
