For the first time in over four years — or since his rookie season, San Miguel Beer behemoth June Mar Fajardo laid a big fat egg.
Up against lightweight Mahindra on Wednesday night, the pro league’s reigning three-time MVP missed all of his four attempts and accounted for a single error while playing for less than nine minutes.
“Malakas ‘yung mga teammates ko so kaya naming manalo,” stressed the the 6-foot-10, who sat out the entire second half and watched with delight as the Beermen built a lead as high as 34 points and gave the Floodbuster a sound beating despite the return of playing-coach Manny Pacquiao to their fold.
The scoreless performance was only the second time in the Cebuano giant’s pro league career since he also failed to break the ice in San Miguel Beer’s hard-earned 60-53 win over defunct Air21 in the same mid-season tournament last March 1, 2013. – FOX Sports Asia
