MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippines swept its way to the baseball crown, blasting Thailand, 15-2, Sunday in the 30th Southeast Asian Games in New Clark City.
The Filipinos unleashed their full force against the hapless Thais, scoring on each of the first seven innings to win the gold medal in eight innings.
Team manager Orlando Binarao credited the win to their vaunted offense.
“The boys played very inspired baseball today,” said Binarao after the victory at The Villages.
