SALEM, May 30—Vancouver Capilanos extended their Western International League winning streak to 15 games Wednesday, only to have Bill Bevens of Salem Senators snap it in the second game of a double-header, 6-4.
The 15th victory, a league record, was recorded in the 1-0 opener.
Then Bevens, the ex-Yankee making a comeback attempt, not only broke the string, but also stopped Bob Snyder, the Vancouver pitcher who had recorded nine straight wins.
GET TWO BACK
Dick Faber gave Bevens an early lead, swatting a three-run homer in the first inning off Snyder. Vancouver got two runs back in the first inning on two walks, a single by Norm Grabar and a double by Pete Tedeschi, accounting for three runs in that inning. Bevens was never in any danger thereafter.
PETE WINS ONE
In the seven-inning first game, Pete Hernandez bested Ray McNulty in a pitching duel. Each gave up six hits, but McNulty made the mistake of giving up two in a row in the sixth inning.
Outfielder Charlie Mead drove the first one in that frame, a triple. Second baseman Reno Cheso immediately swatted a double that scored Mead with the game’s only run..
The rampaging Caps have lost only nine of the 40 games they've played this year. The former record of 13 consective wins was set by Salem in 1946.
