Barangay Ginebra San Miguel survived a late scare from Mark Macapagal and GlobalPort to win, 113-107, to even out their record in the PLDT Home TVolution PBA Commissioner’s Cup Friday at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Import Leon Rodgers scored a team-high 33 points while Mark Caguioa added 15 points, 14 rebounds and three assists as GInebra returned to .500 with a 2-2 record.

Jayjay Helterbrand had 14 while LA Tenorio and Japeth Aguilar chipped in with 11 and 10 points.

Ginebra led by eight points, 102-94, late in the fourth, but Macapagal led a late Batang Pier run, scoring all of his team’s next eight points as they stayed within striking distance.

After a split by Chris Ellis, Terrence Romeo brought GlobalPort to within three points, 109-106, with just 25.6 seconds remaining.

But Tenorio would not let them get any closer, taking care of two free throws to make it 111-106 to all but seal the game with 16.7 seconds left.

After Romeo split from the line, Caguioa added one last layup to seal the final margin.

Ginebra led by 11 points in the third quarter after a layup by Rodgers and a three from Caguioa gave them a 72-61 lead.

But GlobalPort came to within seven, 85-78, at the end of the third and opened the final period with a 9-3 run as they came to within a solitary point, 88-87.

Later in the quarter, Macapagal took over for the Batang Pier, making a layup in transition, hitting a three-pointer and then knocking down three free throws after getting fouled while shooting from beyond the arc.

But Ginebra had an answer to each of his points with Rodgers, Tenorio and Ellis conspiring to give Ginebra a 109-103 lead heading into the final half minute.

GlobalPort was led by import Evan Brock, who led all scorers with 36 points. Alex Cabagnot added 16 while Macapagal finished 14 points.

The Batang Pier dropped their fifth straight game and remained without a win in the conference.
