Cebu gets back at batangas
JOSEPH Orillana, Edmer Del Socorro and Alpha Turaray combined for a three-hit combo for the Cebu Dolphins as they got back at the Batangas Bulls, 9-0, to gain a share of the lead in the standings in the Baseball Philippine Series 8 at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.
With their hurlers frustrating the Bulls in morning drizzle, Christian Maghanoy, Miggy Corcuera and Del Socorro took care of Cebu’s offense as the Dolphins made up for their 5-8 to the Bulls last Saturday that snapped their back-to-back victories to open their campaign in the league.
Maghanoy hit a bases-loaded double to advance Corcuera and Orillana home while Joannard Pareja reached home on an error in the second inning. Corcuera made it 4-0 after a double that scored Del Socorro, who opened the third frame with a double. In the seventh, Corcuera advanced Del Socorro home again with an RBI single.
After Maghanoy raced home on a throwing error, Del Socorro took over with a double in the eighth, advancing Ramil Magno, Reynaldo Calma and Jonash Ponce home.
