SMART CLARK GIGA CITY–Chris Ross took charge in overtime as San Miguel outlasted Blackwater, 90-88, to continue its hot streak at the resumption of the PBA Philippine Cup Tuesday at the Angeles University Foundation Sports Arena here. 

Ross scored five of the Beermen’s last six points as they grabbed a fourth straight victory in the opener of the first-ever quadruple-header in league history. 

Coach Leo Austria’s squad stayed in the upper half of the standings with a 5-2 record. 

Blackwater, which played its first game in 12 days, suffered its third consecutive defeat and fell to 2-4. 

The Elite last played TNT Tropang Giga on October 22 before its next two games got cancelled after one of their players became the second “false positive” case inside the bubble. 

The PBA resumed after a four-day postponement to comply with the new protocols set by the IATF and DOH, forcing the league to compress the remaining 30 elimination round games in just nine days.
