San Miguel has been winning and losing close games.
Even minus their big stars, the Beermen have been competing.
It is as clear as day San Miguel will continue to be among the teams to be reckoned with as the regular season reels off sometime in October.
Meanwhile, the Beermen continue to battle with their second stringers as they take on the Coverge FiberXers at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in PBA on Tour, presented by Arena Plus and sponsored by Bingo Plus, at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
After dropping tight matches versus the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters and the Meralco Bolts, coach Jorge Gallent’s troops hope to regain their winning ways versus the Converge side which also looks to snap its own losing skein.
The Beermen are now at 2-3, bowing to the Bolts, 89-92, as Terrence Romeo joined other SMB stars on the sideline in their last outing.
Sans June Mar Fajardo, Chris Ross, Vic Manuel, Simon Enciso, Marcio Lassiter and Romeo, the Beermen went to Jericho Cruz, Moala Tautuaa and Rodney Brondial for leadership, firepower and defensive muscles. Still they dragged the Bolts to a battle.
