China got an ace of a per­for­mance from pitcher Wang Xin Tu in a 4-2 vic­tory over the Philip­pines on Thurs­day that ousted the Jr. Blu Girls from the Asian Ju­nior 19-Un­der Women’s Soft­ball Cham­pi­onship at Clark In­ter­na­tional Sports Com­plex in Pam­panga.

Wang sur­ren­dered just four hits and re­tired eight in a no-re­lief job and the Chi­nese of­fense was like a welloiled machine as China de­feated the Filipinos for the sec­ond time here and en­tered the ti­tle game op­po­site Ja­pan, which un­seated Chi­nese Taipei with a 10-3 rout.

Kaith Ezra Ja­lan­doni and Royeve Palma couldn’t con­tain the Chi­nese, sur­ren­der­ing seven hits, three in the first in­ning, count­ing homers by Jiang Xin and Xi Ji­axin.

The Ja­panese, on the other hand, had two homers in the third and scored an­other in the fourth to de­throne the Tai­wanese and seal a ti­tle show­down with the Chi­nese, who also edged the Ju­nior Blu Girls, 1-0, in last Sun­day’s opener.
