The Adamson Soaring Falcons annexed their 11th UAAP baseball title after thumping the DLSU Green Batters, 13-6, in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 80 Baseball finals at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium Friday afternoon.

Adamson scored 13 straight runs after La Salle took a 5-0 lead at the conclusion of the top of the third inning.

It was all Adamson after that point, replicating their Game 1 offensive barrage against the top-seeded Green Batters.

Graduating pitcher Jerome Yenson's hands were all over Adamson's offense, going 3-5 at bat, leading to two runs in the bottom of the third, sparking Adamson's huge run.

The Falcons went beserk in the bottom of the third, virtually erasing La Salle's huge advantage and cut the lead to a run, 5-4.

Castillo made the game-tying run the bottom of the fourth inning, before Yenson made the sacrifice fly that sent Erwin Bosito and Gerald Riparip home to take the lead, 7-5.

Adamson then proceeded to score six more runs for their first baseball title since 2010.
