Gino Tantuico belted out a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning as Ateneo de Manila University extended the UAAP Season 81 baseball championship series with a 7-3 win over De La Salle University in Game 2 on Tuesday at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.
Javi Macasaet delivered four hits while pitcher Miggy Angeles, in a sensational no-relief job, struck out two batters to help the Blue Eagles tie their best-of-three duel to one game apiece.
Game 3 is set on Friday noon at the same Malate venue and will air live on LIGA, LIGA HD, iWant and sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap
Following up his grand slam homer in last Friday's series-opening 7-9 loss, Tantuico's home run gave Ateneo the needed cushion at 7-2 in the bottom seventh.
