The team defeated Jemul Pogo 7-6 in the quarterfinals of the 51st Bonghwangdae National High School Baseball Tournament at Mokdong Stadium in Seoul on Thursday after a three-hour, 33-minute battle. It is the first time Seadoo has reached the quarterfinals since the 33rd edition in 2003. The prestigious team from Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do, which was founded in 1954 and has produced the likes of Song Jin-woo and Jang Jong-hoon, has reached the quarterfinals three times in 1987, 2002 and 2003, but has yet to win the ‘green phoenix’. “I’m happy to reach the quarterfinals of the national tournament in my first year,” said Bang Jin-ho, head coach of Saeadang, “It’s been 20 years since we’ve reached the quarterfinals of the phoenix tournament, and we’ll try to win our first title.”
In the next game, Daegu Sangwon High School defeated Kyungpook National University 8-3. Daegu Sangwon High School, which won the championship in 1973 and 1974, the first two years of the phoenix era, reached the final in 1975, but was stopped by Kyungpook National University and lost three consecutive games, and is aiming to regain supremacy after 49 years.
Seadang and Daegu Sangwongo, who won side by side on the day, will play for a ticket to the final at the same venue on the 6th.
Saeadang earned a hard-fought victory as their mound collapsed on itself. They only managed four hits, but they drew a whopping 19 walks on four pitches and scored the winning run on a wild pitch. The two teams were evenly matched until the ninth inning. Tied 2-2 in the top of the sixth, SaeAd scored four runs on a passed ball and an error, and Jemulpogo tied the game at 6-6 in the bottom of the inning with RBI singles from Yeom Dae-hwan (1) and Moon Ji-ho (2).
However, it was Se-ad who had the last word. In the top of the ninth, the Seadogs drew two walks to put runners in scoring position. With runners on first and second, No. 3 Lee Sang-mook grounded into a fielder’s choice to put runners on second and third, and No. 4 Park Jun-sung (3) was hit by a pitch to bring in the final run. Kim Jin-seo (3), who relieved ace Kim Yeon-joo (3) after one out in the bottom of the eighth, gave up a single in the top of the ninth with a one-run lead, but finished the inning without allowing a run to end the long game and earn the win.
Daegu Sangwongo did not let go of the early lead. In the top of the second inning, they scored four runs on a hit and two walks, followed by three pinch-hit singles and an outfield sacrifice fly. In the top of the fifth inning, with the bases loaded and no outs, two push balls and a wild pitch plated three runs to give Kyungpook State a precarious one-run lead, but back-to-back errors by opposing second baseman Park Hyun-hoo (sophomore) in the top of the eighth inning allowed them to score another run.
One inning later, Daegu Sangwongo had a chance to put runners on first and second with back-to-back singles, but when No. 9 Seok Seung-min (2) hit an infield grounder, second baseman Park Hyun-hoo made a throwing error to second. The ball fell backward, allowing the second baseman to reach home. Another grounder by No. 1 Lee Ho-joon (3 years) went to the second baseman, and Park Hyun-hoo made a bad throw to first base. Meanwhile, Daegu Sangwon Go scored one run. In the next at-bat, No. 2 Nam Tae-woong (1 year) drove in a run with a double to right-center field.
