As its quest for a Grand Slam ended on Wednesday night, San Miguel Beer quickly shifted its focus on a different shot at history.

The Beermen now have their sights set on a fourth consecutive PBA Philippine Cup championship, a feat that has never been done before.

“We just have to move on. We’re going to bounce back next conference. We can still make history with four straight All-Filipino titles,” said June Mar Fajardo in Filipino after SMB got blown out by Barangay Ginebra in the 2017 Governors’ Cup quarterfinals.

It was a painful exit for the Beermen, who suffered their worst loss of the season.

The setback, however, also put things in perspective for San Miguel.

“We had a great year, we won two conferences, five out of nine championships, it’s not a failure,” said Chris Ross.-
