Philippines vents ire on Hong Kong in BFA consolation round

Missing out on the Super Round due to quotient, the Philippine Men’s National Baseball Team pounded Hong Kong in eight innings, 10-0, in the 2019 BFA Asian Baseball Championship, Friday. 

Though ending the group stages with a three-way tie with China and South Korea with 2-1 slates, the Philippines could not make it to the super round due to runs scored. The Philippines only had 14, while China and South Korea had 16 and 28, respectively.

The Philippines defeated Pakistan (11-0) and China (1-0) but lost to South Korea anew (2-12).

Still, the Filipino batters used this as motivation to end their campaign in Taichung Stadium on a high note.

The Philippines had 16 hits in the game, as the country’s bullpen once again delivered. Kiko Gesmundo pitched seven innings, striking out eight batters, while Vladi Eguia closed out the shutout.

Jenald Pareja continued his hot batting, as he had three hits in the game that resulted in four RBIs. Diego Lozano also had three hits.

Aids Bernardo, Steven Manaig, and Javi Macasaet also had multiple hits in the game, while Jerome Yenson had two RBIs as well.

The Philippines ends its Asian Championship campaign on Saturday against Sri Lanka.
