A's Hang on to Edge Senators
VICTORIA — Building up an 8-0 lead in the first six innings behind the pitching of Jim Gibson, Victoria Athletics barely managed to last and staggered through a 10-9 victory obver the Salem Senators at Royal Athletic Park on Thursday night in the first game of a four-game series. Only a pair of gift runs in the eighth kept the A's from losing.
Gibson had given up only a bouncing single in the first six frames but tired in the seventh. He gave up three runs on two doubles, a single and Bill White's muff, then was pulled for Bill Rothrock in the middle of a four-run rally in the eighth. Gibson gave up a triple, two more singles and a walk in the eighth, Rothrock came in and surrendered a two-run double to Ben Gregory before getting the next two out to end the inning.
The A's scored twice in the eighth after Dick O'Boyle walked the bases loaded. Manager Jack Wilson replaced him and hit pinch-batter Johnny Hooper to bring in a batter. Ken Wyatt replaced Wilson and walked Sol Israel to force in another run.
Lefty Bill Woop barely managed to protect the lead as Lou Kubiak hit a two-run homer to centre field in the final inning but struck out Krug for the last out with the tying run on the bags.
Salem ........ 000 000 342 – 9 10 3
