Woop Checks Tars as A's Come Back
VICTORIA, Aug. 26 — The Victoria Athletics scored three in the eighth to tie the game , then went on to a 9-8, 11-inning win in a Western International League game tonight.
John Cavalli led off the 11th win a slashing double to right field that Bill Barisoff was unable to hold. After bunting foul, John Hooper, who had a double and two singles, pushed a hit over the drawn-in infield and Cavalli scored standing up.
Jim Arnold started the game for Victoria and was given a 2-0 lead when Vic Mastro homered. But he was off to an early showers. Frank Volpi dropped a hit over the centre-field wall after Allan Maul and Barisoff singled, for three runs. A walk to Charlie Bushong and a single by pitcher Jim Lowman brought in reliever Bill Woop, who got off to a rough start. He threw wild to Vic Mastro at the plate, gave up two walks and was victimised by a low throw from third baseman Babe Jensen and three runs scored.
But then Woop gave up a lone run on four hits the rest of the way.
Jensen smacked a two-run homer in the third, and a throwing error by Jim Estrada allowed Jack Marshman to score a run in the third.
Then came the eighth inning, when Cavalli capped the inning with a two-run homer, putting the game into extra innings.

Weird One at Wenatchee
WENATCHEE, Aug. 26 — The Wenatchee Chiefs scored seven runs on only one hit in the fourth inning tonight to take a 12-6 win over the Yakima Stars in the Western International League tonight.
With one out, Yakima pitcher Larry Ward walked Jimmy Zinn but struck out the next batter for the second out. Three consecutive walks forced in a run and brought in a new pitcher. Rowe Wallerstein forced in two more with another pair of passes and gave way to John Cordell. The latter was reached for a single which plated the fourth run and left the bags still loaded.
Cordell then struck out Lou McCollum but catcher Bud Phillips dropped the third strike. Instead of stepping on the plate to force the third out, he fired the ball to first base. No one was coverting and three more runs counted before the right fielder retrieved the pellet.
