Sai Sei’s Justin Reyes is alone at the top of the batting leaderboard, while the Papa Bears’s Paul Camacho and the BSI Aces’ Mel Sakisat are still in the deadlock for the pitching lead in the 2016 Masters Baseball League.
Reyes, who tied the GSM Masters’ Jerry Ayuyu for the batting lead last week, now owns the solo lead after going 9-for-12 and averaging .750 in four games. He edged Ayuyu after hitting 3-for-4 in their 11-21 loss to the Old Stars last week, while the latter was booted out of the Top 15 as the GSM Masters (1-1) did not see action in the last three playing days of the league.
The Old Stars’ Jess Mesa, who was third last week, moved up to fourth with his .615 batting average and 8-for-13 performance at bat. Rubak’s Theo Minor (.600/6-for-10), the BSI Aces’ John Acosta (.555/5-for-9/), and Papa Bears’ Bob Lizama (.545/6-for-11) rounded out the Top 5.
Also on the leaderboard are the Old Stars’ Manny Cabrera (.533), Sai Sei’s Ota Nabeyuke (.500), the Papa Bears’ Mike Muna (.500), the Old Stars’ Randall Aguon (.444), Rubak’s Chel Castro (.444), Sai Sei’s Taylor Germance (.438), and the Old Stars’ George David (.400), Ben Tagabuel (.400), and Tom Camacho (.364).
