LEWISTON, Idaho, Aug. 10—It was give-away Monday as Calgary Stampeders gave away nineteen hits, nineteen bases on balls, and lost a 25-4 ball game to Lewiston Broncs in their Western International League tilt.
The hapless Stampeders got but one home run among their four tallies. Rocky Tedesco laced one out in the eighth with none on.
Lewiston picked up two homers along the way. Al Heist homered in the second inning with none aboard, and Ken Richardson repeated the performance in the sixth with the bases loaded. Richardson also accounted for eight of the Lewiston runs.

YAKIMA, Wash., Aug. 10— Reliefer Danny Rios whipped three strikes past Dwane Helbig in the top of the eighth after two runs had scored to lead Yakima Bears to a 6-5 decision over Victoria in Western International League baseball play here Monday night.
Rios left the tying and winning runs at the plate.
Trailing by three runs, Tyees got two runs off Ted Edmunds, who had replaced Yakima starter Don Townsend, before Rios came in. The tallies came off a hit batter, two walks and Granny Gladstone's single.
Bears got all the runs they needed in the bottom of the seventh on two singles, a walk and an error.
Bill Prior took the loss. He gave up only six hits but was hurt with two errors.

VANCOUVER [Keith Matthews, News-Herald, Aug. 11]—Revitalized through the addition of the “take charge” guy they’ve been looking for all year, the Capilanos stomped heavily on the toes of proud Salem Monday winning 5-1.
It was hardly coincidental—more poetic justice in fact—that Jimmy Clark, the most recent and important acquisition, batted in the runs which won the game with a 380-foot, third inning triple. It accounted for two runs and the Salems never recovered from that wallop.
Clark was in on a pair of double plays besides, and helped spark an infield which looked somewhat like the traditionary Vancouver inner defences. Jack Bukowatz, Jim’s partner at the keystone, came up with a couple of beautiful grabs and Gene Petralli wound up the game with a leaping one-hander of Jerry Ballard’s line smash which Gene turned into an unassisted double play.
The ball club as a whole gave fans something to cheer about. They played with a new abandon and color which has been lacking all year. Lonnie Myers, who picked up his No.8 win, showed a distinct benefit from Dick Barrett’s coaching by coming up with a chance of pace which he had never thrown before.
Myers’ contribution was a seven-hitter in which he showed far more control than he had been displaying. It is Barrett’s feeling that Myers throws too many fast ball, even though it is by far his best pitch.
“He doesn’t set up the pitch the right way,” Dick explained. “If we can get him to throw more curves and the odd change, then come in with that fast ball, he won’t be walking many and he’ll be winning a lot more.”
Tonight the same clubs do it again at 8:30.

VANCOUVER, Aug. 10—Lonnie Myers' seven-hit pitching led Vancouver Capilanos to a 5-1 win over Salem Senators in a Western International League baseball game here Monday.
Myers struck out four and picked up his eighth win against six losses as he didn't allow Salem an extra-base hit.
Salem got its run in the fifth inning on a single, a fielder's choice and another single.
Jim Clark, who joined Vancouver Monday from Victoria Tyees, hammered out a triple in the third inning to drive in three runs, and played errorless ball at short.
Salem ............... 000 010 000—1 7 1
Vancouver ......... 003 001 01x—5 9 0
