TACOMA, Sept. 3 - Slugging outfielder-turned-pitcher Dick Greco batted in three runs with a homer and a single while striking out 10 Victorians to give the Tacoma Tigers a 6-5 win over the Victoria Athletics here tonight.
The A's tries to pull it out in the ninth. They scored a run but Bill White struck out and Jack Harshman popped up to end the threat with the bags full.

BREMERTON, Sept. 3—Bill Barisoff set a Western International League record last year with 40 home runs. So, it was only fitting that in a rare mound appearance, he should give up home runs. And he and his fellow mounsmnen surrendered five as the Vancouver Capilanos crushed the Bremerton Bluejackets 15-3 tonight.
Charlie Mead had a solo shot to tie the game at 1-1 in the second. Then, the outfielder-turned-pitcher gave up one to pitcher-turned-outfielder, Pete Jonas, playing in right due to an injury to Paul Carpenter, to begin the fourth inning. Bill Brenner added a three-run shot later that inning. Mead stroked a three-run blast in the sixth and Len Tran hit one for three runs in the eighth.
Bob Snyder picked up his 16th victory in going the distance. Barisoff was gone by the end of the fourth in his first pitching appearance of the year.
