VANCOUVER, May 26—See saw, Marjorie Daw—The teams all aim for Tacoma.
It's more than a nursery rhyme parody for the Tacoma Tigers. The Western International League pace setter took it on the chin for the second straight game tonight.
Hunk Anderson allowed only two singles and a double, while his teammates pounded 16 hits as the Vancouver Capilanos upset the Tigers 14-2 tonight.
Joe Kaney singled, tripled, and doubled to bring in five runs and accepted 12 chances at second base without a muff, even though his arm is injured and he can only throw underhanded.
Charlie Mead homered for the Caps.
Tacoma ........... 000 200 000—2 3 2

VICTORIA, May 26—Snag Moore's seventh-inning home run made the difference as the Bremerton Bluejackets beat the Victoria Athletics tonight, 7-5, in a Western International League game.
After Bremerton pitcher Bill Barisoff and Jack Palmer had exchanged third inning home runs, the visitors moved ahead with three runs in the fourth. But Victoria wouldn't give up. Blooper hits by Lil Arnerich, Al Maul, and Ed Murphy were followed by Jimmy Brown's line single to score two. Righthander Frank Logue, who lost his first game after three wins, hurled to second base to pick off Murphy, who ended up scoring instead when Palmer's throw hit him in the back as he streaked for third. A single run in the fifth made it 5-1.
Victoria bounced back in their half of the inning when a long double by Sal Recca, a walk to Logue and Charlie Balassi's single filled the bags. After Vic Buccola forced a runner at the plate, Palmer cleared the bases with a double to the fence in left-centre to brings the A's to within a run.
Moore's home run followed Barisoff's double in the seventh to finish the scoring to maintain some distance — which was needed after Palmer hit an inside the park home run in the eighth when Dale Markert missed a shoe-string catch in left. The sole run was the last the home team could muster.
Bremerton ........... 001 310 200—7 11 2
