Coming off a 0-15 loss to Chinese-Taipei, the Philippine Women’s National Baseball Team regrouped, taking a 6-2 stunner over powerhouse squad China, Wednesday at Panda Stadium in China.

Starting pitcher Nicole Estante shut out China in five innings pitched. Her masterpiece included five strikeouts.
On the other end, the Philippines had seven hits in the contest, including two from Lea Guevarra. Ivy Capistrano meanwhile had two RBIs and two runs.
