Chuck Elson laid down a sacrifice
which set off a chain reaction.
Throws Bad
Brenner fielded the bunt but his
throw to first was bad. Ray Steele,
on the retrieve, followed with a
wild relay throw to third, trying
to cut down the fleet Bojorques.
The two errors resulted in t h e
Bears' run.
Yakima followed with singletons
in the third, fifth and sixth innings.
Olson's double, a groundout and

care of the run in the third.
Singles by Vince Moreci and Herm
