Ateneo nine overwhelms Batangas, ties for lead

/ 12:35 AM March 31, 2014

MANILA, Philippines — Ateneo needed only seven innings to overpower Batangas State University, 20-6, even as Throwbacks and National University also prevailed Sunday in the PSC Commissioners’ Cup at Rizal Memorial Baseball Park.

The back-to-back UAAP champion Eagles wrapped up their third straight win under the 10-run mercy rule by storming to a 14-3 lead after the first three innings and adding six more in the next three frames to tie idle Rizal Technological University and Philippine Air Force for the lead.

Throwbacks downed La Salle, 7-2, behind a no-hitter by Jose Laurel, while National University blasted the young Pacific Online squad, 6-3.

Made up of former UAAP batters, Throwbacks improved its record to 2-1 while the Bulldogs, who placed second in last year’s PSC Chairman’s Classic, notched their second straight win after a 0-2 start.
