In the round of 32 game between Masango and Sunlin Internet High School at the 51st Bonghwang Daejeon National High School Baseball Tournament at Mokdong Baseball Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, Masango scored 11 runs on 11 hits and five errors to defeat baseball’s prestigious Sunlin Internet High School. Masango got off to a fast start in the top of the first inning, scoring the first run on a walk and a hit followed by an error by the opposing second baseman, and then plating four runs on an outfield sacrifice fly by Park Hyun-woo and an RBI double by Kim Tae-hyun.

After scoring a run in the bottom of the first on a Kwon Young-min single to left field, Sunlin Internet High School had a chance to rally in the top of the third, but couldn’t capitalize. With runners on first and second with no outs and a favorable 3-ball 1-strike count, Kim Sung-jae, the No. 4 hitter, was called out for a strike by the robot umpire on a five-pitch low ball. The runner on second thought it was a grounder and slowly made his way to third base, where he was tagged out. The next batter struck out, breaking up the offense.안전놀이터

Masango, on the other hand, opened the scoring in the top of the third inning with a single and then scored two runs when Shin Min-woo tripled and an error was made on the replay. In the fifth inning, they scored another run and seemed to have sealed the game. The prestigious school scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth and had two bases-loaded chances in the bottom of the sixth to try to keep the game alive, but could only add two runs and eventually succumbed to Masango, who scored three runs in the top of the eighth and one in the top of the ninth to drive in the winning run, 11-5. Masango, who secured a spot in the round of 16 on the day, will face Seadoo, who defeated Suncheon Hyochungo BC, on March 30.
