Errors Beat Athletics
SALEM, April 29 — Salem's Senators, seeking vengeance for the series loss at Victoria last week, trimmed the Victoria Athletics, 8-4, here tonight, in the opening tilt of their current arrangement.
The Solons built up a lead of 5-0 on the visitors while southpaw Kenny Wyatt was twirling perfect baseball — no runs, no hits, no walks — for six and one-third innings until the A's got to him in that same sixth. Jack Harshman broke the spell with a double, and Wyatt subsequently gave up two walks to fill the bags which set the stage for Babe Jensen's long triple against the left-field boards. Jensen also knocked in the final Victoria tally in the ninth with a single.
