Once again, June Mar Fajardo cast his huge shadow over TNT.

The reigning four-time MVP scored 35 points on top of 11 rebounds in powering San Miguel Beer over TNT, 106-93, Tuesday and into the PBA Philippine Cup semi-finals first at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Fellow starters Arwind Santos, Marcio Lassiter and Chris Ross also played key roles as the top-ranked Beermen did not let their win-once advantage over the eighth-seeded KaTropa go to waste.

Jericho Cruz typified TNT’s frustrations by delivering a forearm to Santos’ nape after getting bumped by the former MVP during Ross’ breakaway layup.

For the second motion, Santos was slapped his second technical foul that led to his ejection. Cruz was meted an F1.

Jayson Castro, Roger Pogoy, Anthony Semerad and Kelly Williams all finished with at least 15 points each as the KaTropa wound up with their worst finish under coach Nash Racela.
