A's Outslug Tigers
VICTORIA - The Victoria Athletics pounded three Tacoma pitchers for 17 hits but needed last relief help from Bill Woop to pull out a 10-8 victory over the Tigers in the first game of a three-game Western International League series here tonight.
After giving up a run in the first inning when leadoff batter Pete Tedeschi went all the way around on three errors on a continuous play, the Victorians went ahead in their half when Jack Harshman lifted his eighth home run out of the park with Pat Patterson aboard.
Tacoma tied it in the second and drove Joe Blankenship from the mound with three runs in the sixth.
Victoria sent Cy Greenlaw to the showers in the bottom of the inning with a five-run rally to take the lead again.
The Tigers tied the game at 8-all with a pair in the seventh but the Athletics came back with three more in their half of the inning to salt it away. Babe Jensen led off with a triple, then singles by Bill White, Mike Hafenecker and Jim Fontaine, and a long double by winning pitcher Jim Gibson followed.
Guy Miller, Neil Clifford and Tedeschi hit safely in the Tacoma eighth to bring in a run, and Woop was rushed in to the breach with the tying runs on the bags and one out. He immediately struck out Bob Joratz and Bob Hedington to retire the side, then set down the losers in the ninth, giving up a walk after two were out.

Greenlaw, Gilson (6) Sabutis (8) and Kuper; Blankenship, Gibson (6), Woop (8) and Fontaine.
Barisoff Hits for Circuit to Down Caps
VANCOUVER, May 19 - Bill Barisoff, last year's Western International League home run king, smacked a two-out circuit clout in the ninth inning to give the league-leading Bremerton Bluejackets a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Capilanos in a league fixture tonight.
Barisoff's game-winning hit came after Bob Hall walked Bill Reese. Barisoff hit the first pitch, a fastball on the outside corner, for a half-hearted pop fly over the short right field fence.
The loss for Hall, who pitched brilliant four-hit ball until the payoff bingle, was his first in five starts. Bremerton's Hub Kittle, who kept Vancouver's nine hits scattered, racked up his fourth win. Kittle struck out two men, the first and last men to face him, against nine for Hall.
The Caps garnered their lone run when Lou Estes, who had doubled, scored on Charlie Mead's single.
Bremerton ......... 000 000 002—2 5 0
