CALASIAO--Rain Or Shine blasted off in the fourth quarter to take down Blackwater, 110-103, in the PBA's first game back at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Manila on Saturday.

After letting the Bossing open a 14-point lead in the first half, the Elasto Painters slowly crawled back to the game, and they completely turned the tides in the final period, where they outscored the Bossing, 30-19, to steal the win.

Santi Santillan led ROS, winning three straight games after a 0-4 start, with 28 points, seven rebounds, and three assists.
