MABALACAT, PAMPANGA — With the inclement weather, the Philippine National Baseball Team wasted no time, needing just eight innings to dispose of Cambodia, 12-0, Tuesday at the Villages here.
The Philippines shuffled six pitchers in the contest led by Vladi Eguia.
Eguia was untouchable in the first two innings, fanning all six Cambodians.
Arvin Herrera, Jonjon Robles, Clarence Caasalan, Junmar Diarao, and Paulo Macasaet all had a chance to shine on the mound.
With the pitchers clicking, the offense followed suit.
After punching two runs in the first two innings, the Filipinos followed it up with three runs each in the fourth and sixth innings.
Aids Bernardo went 4-of-5 at-bat. Meanwhile, Erwin Bosito, who tallied the most stolen bases during the Asia Cup, had multiple SBs in the contest.
“Actually, matagal na silang nakapag-adjust. ‘Yung runs [na marami] sa dalawang inning, ‘di pa rin sila gaano nakapag-adjust kasi nga ‘yung pitcher nila medyo mabagal. Ang mga player ko medyo sanay sa mabilis. Medyo huli na noong nag-adjust sila,” said head coach Orlando Binarao.
The game mercifully ended at the eighth inning after the Philippines punched in four more runs.
The Philippines will next face Singapore on Wednesday at 1:30 pm.
