The San Miguel Beermen moved one step closer to claiming one of the the top two spots along with the twice-to-beat advantage that goes along with it as they scored a 124-113 victory over the game Blackwater Elite, Wednesday night at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay.

June Mar Fajardo also posted huge numbers with 28 points and seven rebounds. Chris Ross, Arwind Santos, and Gabby Espinas also finished in double digits with 14, 13, and 10 points, respectively.
