The DLSU Green Batters survived UP’s comeback attempt in the final inning in the team’s 8-7 win last January 19 to sweep the first round of the UAAP Season 76 Baseball Tournament at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.

With this win, La Salle ended a sensational first round with a perfect 5-0 record.

After building a big 8-3 lead against UP, the Green Batters almost let the game slip away as they saw their lead being sliced off by their Diliman-based opponents.

Sensing the need to finish the game on a strong note, the Green Batters timely pitching and right plays finally slammed the door shut for any UP win as Mikmik Herrera was caught stealing the second base.

For their next match, La Salle will open the second round against the UST Golden Sox this coming January 26, 7:00 am, at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.
