Mark Barroca’s 17 points and six assists propelled the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok to a 3-1 lead against Meralco Bolts, 81-69, in Game 4 of 2021 PBA Philippine Cup Semifinals round within DHVSU Gym tonight.

Ian Sangalang did the paint demolition for Hotshots against the Bolts without their starting big Raymond Almazan, grabbing a double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds. Meanwhile, Calvin Abueva racked up with 17 markers and 11 boards.

Meralco tried to climb back from the game after erasing a 21-point lead in the fourth, 74-69, but Barroca’s heroics through a three-point bomb and charity stripe shooting remained supreme for Pambansang Manok.

Magnolia are one win away to punch the first ticket of the tourney’s championship round. In the other hand, Bolts will try to turn the series around in Wednesday.
