BREMERTON, Apr. 27—Bremerton Bluejackets went down before Salem Senators, 7-4, tonight, with Bob Cherry and Bill Taylor swinging the big bats.
Cherry banged out a triple, double and a single to account for three of the Senators' runs. However, his performance was overshadowed by that of Bill Taylor, 230 pound Bremerton outfielder. Taylor, who played for Phoenix last season and has been hitting at a terrific clip for te Tars in early games, slammed out twoo 400-foot doubles and a long home run to bat in all four runs for the losers.
Tars' notes — Joining the club today were catcher Frank Constantino, with Wenatchee last year, and Keith Simon, a 17-game winner for the Jackets in 1948. It had been previously announced that Simon and John Conant were to join the Spokane club as part of the deal which sent pitcher Frank Nelson to Oakland.

VICTORIA, Apr. 27—After spotting the Victoria Athletics to three runs in the second inning, the Spokane Indians came roaring back to beat the home team 11-4 tonight.
Frank Finnegan walked, Dick Morgan was safe when Jack Calvey booted a potential double-play ball and both scored when R.B. Everett bunted the ball over the head of picther Jack Teagan and Larry Barton threw wildly to third. Everett advanced to third on George Valine's bobble of Larry Ward's grounder and scored on Sol Israel's single.
But the drizzle stopped about the fifth inning and so did Ward's effectiveness on the hill. He gaveup four hits in a row to Jim Changaris, Calvey, Paul Zaby and Ken Richardson to score two runs. The Indians went ahead in the seventh and drove Ward from the hill as they put together doubles by Calvey, Jack Parks and Valine, singles by Richardson and Tuck Stainback and a pair of walks for five runs.
The A's reduced the deficit by one in their half of the inning when Bob Keeler and John Jack drew bases on balls and Vic Buccola drove Keeler home from second with a hard smash over second base.
