San Miguel Beer finally got its elusive win from Columbian.
The Grand Slam-seeking Beermen caught fire late, taking down the Dyip, 113-107, Sunday in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cu at the Big Dome.
Much like their previous two games, San Miguel had trouble against the upstart Dyip, but unlike their previous two games, the Beermen had more than enough now to finally beat the Dyip this season.
The win also pushed San Miguel back to a share of second place with idle NLEX with identical 5-1 records.
Import Dez Wells continued his hot streak for the Beermen, scoring 39 points.
Five locals scored in double figures for San Miguel led by 19 points from June Mar Fajardo. Mo Tautuaa, acquired in a trade with Northport earlier this week, debuted for the Beermen with 10 points and five rebounds in 19 minutes.
Columbian lost back-to-back for a 3-4 record. The Dyip got a monster 38-point, 25-rebound effort from import Khapri Alston in the loss.
