Mexicans get back at Blu Girls

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Blu Girls’ string of reversals came to an abrupt end Thursday when they bowed to Mexico and Venezuela in the Canada Cup International Softball Championship in Surrey, Canada.

After beating Mexico twice to close out its World Cup of Softball stint in the US, the 17th-ranked Filipinas bowed to the world No. 10 team this time, 6-14 in six innings. They then dropped a heartbreaking 12-11 decision to world No. 5 Venezuela later.

The pair of setbacks halted the Blu Girls’ impressive start that saw them upend No.  3 and host Canada, 6-2, and No. 9 Chinese Taipei, 11-7.

In the World Cup, the Pinay softbelles also upset No. 4 Australia.

The Blu Girls actually led the Mexicans after three completed innings, 5-4, before the latter unloaded five runs in each of the fourth and sixth innings to clear the way for the vengeful abbreviated victory.

Six hours later, the Filipinas faced off with the Venezuelans and even led early on, 4-1.
