The Black Sox got their Softball World Cup campaign back on track with a big mercy rule win over the Philippines to break a sequence of two losses.
Mark Sorensons side had lost 7-0 to the United States and then went down 11-5 in nine innings against Pool A leaders and defending champions Argentina.

But they swept aside the Filipinos 8-1 in five innings at Whakaata Mori Stadium in Auckland on Tuesday night.

The Philippines stunned the Black Sox by scoring the games first run when third baseman Micheal Pagkaliwagan singled up the middle to bat in Mark Gaspi.

It proved shortlived after Reilly Makea slammed a three-run home run over the leftfield fence to put the Black Sox ahead 3-1. The Wellington outfielder later clouted a stand-up double and scored the early-finish eighth run on Thomas Enokas hit.

Captain Cole Evans batted in Joel Evans in the third and then Jerome Raemaki cracked a two-RBI single to take the score out to 6-1 and designated pemain Connor Peden sacrificed in Thomas Enoka for the seventh run.

Highlights for the Black Sox included a diving catch in leftfield by Thomas Enoka and another at first base, by Jerome Raemaki, a hard-hit double by substitute Tane Mumu and Cameron Watts World Cup catching debut.

Black Sox pitcher Pita Rona took 11 strikeouts against the Philippines.

Kiwi pitcher Pita Rona nabbed 11 strikeouts in five innings for one safe hit and a walk.

The Black Sox got seven hits, with Makea and Cole Evans both batting two from two for a 1.000 average.

New Zealand now have a two-win two-loss record ahead of their vital final pool game against Cuba on Wednesday night.

Were still in it, but a lot rides on that game tomorrow night, Sorenson said.

He was pleased that the Black Sox got an opportunity to give pretty much all the squad some game time out there.

It would have been good for all those guys to get another at-bat, but on the flip side its the first time that weve run-ruled as a group since weve been together. That means a lot.

Under softball rules, a team leading another by seven or more runs after five innings is declared a winner.

The early finish thwarted Sorensons plan to give pitcher Josh Pettett who only threw an inning against Argentina back out there against the Filipinos.

He was going to come in if we hadnt got that extra run.

Sorenson said the Black Sox tried to peel it back a bit and just make sure the guys went out and had fun and enjoyed it as they bounced back from their consecutive defeats.

The Black Sox celebrate their win.

Assistant-coach Darryl Marino told the team pre-game that regardless of whoever we play its all about the standards we put out there, Sorenson said.

One of the most pleasing things was in that fifth inning we were up 7-1 and we had two diving catches.

In other games, Canada remain the only unbeaten team in Pool B after beating Australia 6-0.

But second seeds Japan are sensationally out of the playoffs after losing 3-1 to Venezuela.

If Japan beat Canada and Venezuela defeat bottom team Denmark, Japan would miss out because of their loss to the South Americans.

Argentina continue to top Pool A with a fourth consecutive win, beating the Czech Republic 8-1 after trailing early.
