TACOMA, May 19—Jimmy Brown's eighth-inning single after Dale Markart's double pushed across the winning run tonight as the Bremerton Bluejackets dumped Tacoma 4-3 for the second night in a row.
Dick Greco hammered a three-run homer for the Tigers in the sixth.
The win was Bremerton's fifth in six starts, and puts the Jackets within a game and a half of the Western International League-leading Tigers.

VANCOUVER, May 19—Three unearned runs in the fifth inning snapped a 1-all tie tonight to give the Vancouver Capilanos their third straight win over the Victoria Athletics, 6-2.
Victoria opened the scoring for the third straight game when Jack Palmer singled over a run in the third inning, but was unable to hold the lead.
The Caps squared the count in the fourth, then went ahead with a three-run splurge in the fifth. With one out and Frank Mullens at first, Joe Kaney bounced to shortstop Mike Dalton, who failed to touch second on a double-play attempt and all Caps were safe. A single by Jack Warren and a double by Buddy Hjelmaa chased in three runs.
In the seventh, Bill Brenner doubled in two runs and ended the evening for Victoria starter Del Owens, a pro footballer in the off-season.
Sal Recca drove in the final run for the A's with a single in the ninth.
Bob Costello got the win, despite giving up ten walks, and filling the bases in the sixth and eighth innings.
Victoria ............ 001 000 001—2 8 1
Vancouver ........ 000 130 20x—6 11 1
