Defending champion National University, meanwhile, exacted revenge and clipped University of Santo Tomas, 12-7, to seize solo hold of second place with a 6-2 record.

The Growling Tiger batters, who beat the Bulldogs in the first round, dropped to third place at 5-3.

La Salle, on the other hand, dumped Adamson, 14-0, to forge a tie in fourth place with an improved 3-5 card.
