MANILA -- San Miguel just has too much firepower.

The defending four-time champion Beermen wrapped up their elimination round in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup by getting a smashing 114-96 win over Alaska Sunday at the Big Dome.

Down five at the break, San Miguel flipped the switch in the second half, scoring 34 points in the third period to break the game wide open.

The Beermen led by as many as 21 points in the fourth, cruising to victory and ending the elimination round with a 7-4 record.

San Miguel now moves on to the best-of-3 quarterfinals where their title defense will start against either TNT or Barangay Ginebra.
