Blu Girls bow to Chinese


China reasserted its mastery over the Philippines, 4-2, while Japan ended Chinese-Taipei’s reign with a 10-3 rout as they set up a title clash for the Asian Junior 19-Under Women’s Softball Championship crown at the Clark International Sports Complex in Pampanga yesterday.

Hurler Wang Xin Tu surrendered four hits but retired eight Filipina batters in a no-relief job and her teammates peppered Kaith Ezra Jalandoni and Royeve Palma with seven hits, three in the first inning, including two homeruns by Jiang Xin and Xi Jiaxin.

The Japanese, on the other hand, recorded two homers in the third and scored another in the fourth to dethrone the Taiwanese and forge a title showdown with the Chinese, who also edged the Junior Blu Girls, 1-0, in last Sunday’s opener of the event organized by the Softball Confederation Asia in partnership with AsaPhil and sponsored by Cebuana Lhuillier.

Japan trounced China the last time they disputed the Asian Junior crown in India in 1997.
