PBA Replay San Miguel Beermen vs TNT Katropa. June Mar Fajardo came up with a monster performance as San Miguel Beermen lived to fight another day, trouncing TNT KaTropa, 104-88, to force a do-or-die Game Seven in the Oppo PBA Philippine Cup semifinals on Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

The reigning three-peat MVP compiled 23 points and 21 boards to lead San Miguel to the Game Six win and keep the Beermen’s title defense bid alive.

He got ample help from fellow starters Arwind Santos (21 points), Alex Cabagnot (19 points) and Chris Ross (14 points) while the Beermen finally enjoyed production from their bench players RR Garcia and Gabby Espinas who both led a third quarter fightback.

Game Seven is scheduled on Monday also in the same venue, with the winner advancing to the finals.

The Beermen stared at a 63-55 deficit in the third quarter as TNT looked determined to knock off San Miguel.

But the defending champions enjoyed significant contributions from their reserves. Garcia, who finished with nine points, and Espinas, who made five markers, gave life to San Miguel after fueling a 13-0 run that gave them a 68-63 lead at the 1:46 mark of the third frame.
