Philippines pounds China anew, brings home BFA Asia Cup bronze

The first-ever Philippine Women’s National Baseball Team will bring home bronze after thumping host China in just five innings, 11-1, Friday at the Panda Stadium. 

The Philippines ended the Super Round of the 2019 BFA Women’s Baseball Asian Cup with a 1-2 slate. Its losses came from a 0-15 shutout at the hands of Chinese-Taipei during the group stages, and a 2-17 romp at the hands of Japan last Thursday.

Unranked entering the tournament, the Filipina batters opened their campaign with a 12-3 pounding of Hong Kong and a 14-7 stunner over South Korea.

This win in the bronze medal match over China was a repeat. The Philippines also won over China, 6-2, last Wednesday.

With the third place finish, the Philippines will most likely make it to the World Cup next year.

Third baseman Ghene Camral and pitcher Clariz Palma (3-0) were also hailed as Asia’s best in their respective positions.

Also composing the squad are Esmeralda Tayag, Lea Guevarra, Charlotte Sales, Sherylou Valenzuela, Mharnie Dela Cruz, Alaiza Talisik, Ivy Capistrano, Diana Balderama, Mean Ramos, Nicole Estante, Jennifer Singh, and Veronica Velasco.

Serving as head coach for the team is Egay Delos Reyes.
