A's Lose Another to Bremerton
BREMERTON, May 31 — Jim Lowman, veteran righthander, survived a shaky second inning here tonight and then went on to register his seventh straight Western International League victory as the Bremerton Bluejackets came from behind to edge the Victoria Athletics, 6-5.
The verdict increased the Tars' lead at the head of the standings to six and one-half games and dropped Victoria to fourth, just one game ahead of Tacoma, pressing for a first division berth.
Athletics opened up a four-run lead in the second with singles by Bill Anske, Babe Jensen, Jack Harshman and Bill Woop, and error and a passed ball figuring in the scoring.
Jackets got one back in their half and then went ahead when they reached Woop for four runs in the fourth, Lowman contributing a three-run homer to his own cause. Victoria tied it up again in the sixth, but lost out in the seventh when Bill Barisoff singled Alan Maul over with the decider.
