The strange run of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals has kept its course.

After the Game One rout came the Game Two rout, the Game Three rout and yet another rout in Game Four.

Barangay Ginebra took its turn to shoots the lights out Friday night in a 130-100 demolition of San Miguel Beer that sent the series back to scratch through four games of the best-of-seven series before a crowd of over 12,000 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Named the Best Import before the game, Justin Brownlee played up to the citation, coming through with a near triple-double performance (37 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists) to lead the Kings to the series-tying Game Four win.

The scores:

Ginebra 130 – Brownlee 37, Slaughter 19, Devance 18, Tenorio 17, Mercado 9, Aguilar J. 8, Thompson 7, Caperal 7, Chan 4, Mariano 2, Manuel 2, Caguioa 0, Cruz 0, Ferrer 0.

San Miguel 100 – Santos 22, Fajardo 15, Standhardinger 15, Balkman 14, Cabagnot 13, Nabong 6, Lassiter 4, Pessumal 4, Heruela 3, Ross 2, Rosser 2.

Quarters: 39-21, 67-52, 97-75, 130-100.
