The Philippines recovered at the right time against South Korea, taking a pivotal 14-7 win to advance to the 2019 BFA Women’s Baseball Asian Cup Super Round, Sunday in Zhong Shan, China.
Heading into the final day of the group phase, the Filipina batters went undefeated in their first two games. They gained their first win last Saturday with a 12-3 win over Hong Kong.
This time around, the Philippines needed to be clutch to beat the eighth-ranked team in the world.
The Philippines was down 4-5 heading into the final inning before unleashing 10 runs in a blistering frame.
Jojielyn Lim powered the Philippines to victory with three hits and four RBIs.
Esmeralda Tayag, Lea Guevarra, Clariz Palma, Jennifer Singh, and Ivy Capistrano all contributed to the victory as well. Meanwhile, Guevarra and Palma tallied two RBIs.
Palma — who pitched a complete game against Hong Kong — closed out the last 2.2 innings of the contest. Though allowing six hits, she allowed just two runs to seal the win.
The Nationals will take on Chinese-Taipei on Monday before heading to the championship round.
