VICTORIA, July 19 - The Victoria Athletics took a 12-inning thriller, 6-5, Saturday afternoon, but saw their winning streak snapped at five in the night game, as Bremerton Bluejackets came up with an 11-8 win.
Len Kasparovitch was literally knocked out of the first game when Bill Barisoff lined one off his forehead in the first inning. Bill Woop came in and worked the remaining 11 2-3 innings for the win.
Victoria scored three times in the first. Pat Patterson began with a walk, then Pete Barisoff gave up consecutive singles to Bill White, Vic Mastro, Jack Harshman and Babe Jensen. Home runs by White in the fifth and Harshman in the seventh gave the A's their other runs in regulation time.
Woop got into a spot of control trouble while allowed Bremerton to tie the game in the eighth, but in the 12th, Victoria won the game with no men out. Leo Righetti opened with a double off Harry Johnston and Woop beat out a bunt. Patterson walked before John Hooper dove a long single over Hooks DeVaurs' head in left.
The Tars won the second game, despite manager Alan Strange picking the line-up out of a hat for the second time this season.
They scored six runs in the second inning off Bob Jensen, still bothered by a sore shoulder. He gave up a double to Jim Lowman — the pitcher was batting second — and five walks. Ed Murphy added a two-run homer in the fifth.
Jack Harshman swatted his 29th homer of the year in the sixth inning.

SALEM, July 19 - Max Strait shut out the Salem Senators with an eight-hitter, giving the Yakima Stars a 4-0 win tonight, after the Solons finally gained credit for a protested win over the Stars earlier in the season.
The game started with the Senators ahead 8-5 in the ninth inning, two out and two on. Bud Beringhele singled in two runs but the Stars failed to overcome the lead.
The regulation game followed.

VANCOUVER, July 19 - Unhappy fans were more of a story than the Tacoma double-header sweep of the Vancouver Capilanos here Saturday. The Tigers won the openber 11-5 and took the night game 7-4 with some assistance from the arbiters.
The two teams were tied at 3-3 before the Tigers picked up a single run in the seventh, and then two in the eighth, partly because of a call.
Umpire Hugh Day lost his cool after being showered with popcorn, peanuts, cushions and a pop bottle and reportedly challenged a fan in the right field seats to a fight. It came after a call when Lee Mohr took Buddy Hjelmaa's throw on the first end of a potential double play in trying to pick off a Tacoma runner at third. Hjelmaa overthrew the ball. A runner was at first and the umpire allowed him to go all the way to third.
Day said afterward, "There was an old man in the bleachers who was teaching his 'kid' to throw bottles. That started me off. If the guy had had enough courage to come down onto the field and fight, I would have admired him for it."
Earl Kuper brought in three runs for the Tigers with a homer and two singles, while Frank Mullens hit a solo homer for the Caps.
Vancouver wasted a 4-3 lead in the opener as Tacoma scored four runs in the seventh, followed by an insurance run in the eighth and three in the ninth. Three of Vancouver's runs came on homers by Charlie Mead, Mohr and Bill Brenner. Winning pitch Bob Morgan smacked one out for the Tigers, as did Maury Donovan, who had three RBIs.
Tacoma infielder Glen Stetter did not appear in either game. He has apparently finally called it a career. A trick knee is giving him trouble.
