A's Take Twin Bill
VICTORIA - Len Kasparovitch scattered five hits in the opener and the Athletics scored three runs in the sixth and seventh innings of the nightcap to take a pair from the Wenatchee Chiefs, 8-0 and 7-5, here Saturday.
Jack Harshman swung the big bat, homering once to bring in two runs in the first game, and smacking out two in the night game - the third straight game he has clouted a ball out of the park.
Johnny Cavalli also homered in the afternoon contest, as Victoria pounded out 15 hits, two triples and four doubles among the total.
In the evening game, luckless Bob Osborne took his 0-10 record to the mound and had a 3-1 lead going for him. Harshman then smacked a two-run homer off him in the sixth to tie the score. After Wenatchee knotted the game at 4-4 in the seventh, Pat Patterson singled and John Hooper legged out a double, but instead of walking Harshman intentionally to get to the righthanded Bill White, Wenatchee manager Buddy Ryan elected to pitch to Harshman, who parked the ball on Pembroke Street.
