WENATCHEE, June 10—Don Ferrarese pitched the Wenatchee Chiefs to a one-hit 6 to 1 win over the Tri-City Braves here Saturday night.
Leadoff man Al Spaeter socked a solid single to start the sixth inning and spoil Ferrarese's no-hitter.
The Braves scored their run on two walks, a wild pitch and a long fly by third baseman Neil Bryant.
Lil Arnerich and Walt Pocekay led the Wenatchee attack with a double and a single apiece.
Pocekay and Jerry Ballard each drove in two runs.
Ballard was tossed out of the game in the eighth inning by umpire Ray French for arguing a third called strike.
A crowd of 2,086 took in the contest.
The Western International League series stands at two games for Wenatchee and none for Tri-City.

YAKIMA, June 10—Dick Larner missed a shutout by one out as Yakima evened its series with Victoria at one each by trimming the Athletics 6-1 behind the effective pitching of the lanky Bear righthander Saturday night in a Western International league baseball game.
Only in the ninth, when Victoria scored its lone run on a sharp single to centre field by Marty Krug, Jr., did Larner give up more than one hit in an inning. Larner struck out ten batsmen and walked four.
The loser was Jim Propst, who was forced to retire in the fourth inning with a sore arm and the Bears in front 2-0.
Bob Jensen came on in relief and did well until the home club iced it in the eighth with a three-run outburst. Catcher Nini Tornay, the league's leading hitter, was the batting star of the game, driving in three runs with a double and three singles.
Yakima's win was the first in five starts over Victoria and even the current series at one game each.
Victoria .... 000 000 001—1-8-0
Yakima ....... 002 001 03x—6-9-1
Propst, Jensen (4) and Weatherwax; Larner and Tornay.

SPOKANE, June 10 — Spokane's Indians clipped the Vancouver Capilanos 6 to 3 Saturday night in a Western International league baseball game that delighted the fans.
The manager of both teams and the Vancouver third baseman were thumbed out of the game. Somebody poked a hearty roundhouse right to the umpire's jaw.
An outfielder turned pitcher, a pitcher in right field and another hurler batting sixth—all for Vancouver—were additional highlights witnessed by 2,111 spectators.
The Indians led all the way, scoring three in the first frame and one each in the sixth, seventh and eighth. Vancouver's three counters were in the seventh inning.
Vancouver ... 000 000 300—3 5 2
Spokane ...... 300 001 11x—6 9 1
Gunnarson, Anderson (2), Snyder (2) and Brenner; Holder, Roberts (7) and Rossi.

Tacoma and Salem, rained out.
