The Gangneung High School baseball team continued cruising in the second national tournament this year.
Gangneung High School, led by coach Choi Jae-ho, won a 2-1 victory against Yulgok High Baseball Team in the round of 16 of the ‘2023 77th Golden Lion National High School Baseball Championship’ held at Mokdong Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 22nd. Gangneung High School, which consecutively defeated Dogaego (4-2 win) in the first round and Ansan Technical High School (9-0 win) in the round of 32, succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals (including the National Sports Festival) for the fourth consecutive time.
On this day, Gangneung High School selected Chun Beom-seok, a sophomore right-hander, as the starting pitcher. Lee Ji-hoo (left fielder) – Jung Jae-woo (2nd baseman) – Lee Chan-seo (shortstop) – Jo Dae-hyeon (DH) – Lee Yul-ye (catcher) – Lee Yong-hyeon (1st baseman) – Choi Min-ho (center fielder) – Park Chae-woon (3rd baseman) – Kim Min-sik (right fielder) ), followed by a lineup. Gangneung High School scored the first goal in an attack at the bottom of the second inning. The 1-out 1st and 2nd base situation, where Lee Yul-ye and Choi Min-ho walked on base, turned into a 1-out 2nd and 3rd base situation as the opposing pitcher pitched wildly. Park Chae-woon called third base runner Lee Yul-ye home with a ground ball from third baseman.
Starter Cheon Beom-seok completed his mission by holding off Yulgok High’s lineup until the 3rd inning, and handed the mound to freshman right-hander Park Ji-hoon. With no more points scored until the 6th inning, Yulgok High School returned the game to square one in the beginning of the 7th inning. In the beginning of the 7th inning, with one out and second base in danger, manager Choi Jae-ho put ace Cho Dae-hyun on the mound. Cho Dae-hyun blocked the first hitter with a shortstop grounder, but was unable to prevent a run by allowing an infield hit with 2nd out and 3rd base.
Gangneung High School, which failed to score in the attack at the bottom of the 7th inning, succeeded in scoring in the bottom of the 8th inning, which was the match. Gangneung High School took the lead again as Lee Yul-ye pulled out a timely hit at the chance of one out, first and second base, which was greeted with Lee Chan-seo’s hit and Cho Dae-hyun’s walk. Gangneung High School did not score an extra point in the subsequent opportunity, but one point was enough to win.
Even in the top of the ninth, Cho Dae-hyeon, who was on the mound, finished the inning cleanly with a three-way strike, and the game was ruined. Jo “Jotani” Dae-hyeon won the game as a pitcher, and also played an active role as a batter with 1 hit and 1 walk in 4 at bats and 3 at bats. Jung Jae-woo created a multi-hit game with 2 hits in 4 at-bats, and Lee Yul-ye also made a big success with 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 RBI and 1 run in 4 at-bats, 2 at bats.메이저사이트
