Coach Tim Cone literally issued a distress call, and the Barangay Ginebra Kings responded with a solid game.

But the San Miguel Beermen refused to lose and found a way to steal the game in the end.

June Mar Fajardo delivered another huge double-double game while Arwind Santos and Marcio Lassiter came through big time in the clutch as the Beermen squeaked past the Kings, 104-102, in overtime for a commanding 2-0 lead in their PBA Philippine Cup best-of-seven semifinal playoff at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Sunday.

Santos forged the extra period on a huge trey with 13.4 ticks to go in regulations then Lassiter took over, coming away with a crucial six-point binge in the last 50 seconds to save the day for the Beermen.
