After a two-day wait, Daegu Sangwon Go has reached the round of 32 of the Bonhwangdae.
On the 24th, Daegu Sangwon Go defeated Incheon Go 8-3 at the 51st National High School Baseball Tournament for the Battle of the Phoenix 토스카지노(co-hosted by The Korea Times and the Korea Baseball Softball Association) at Shinwol Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, to advance past the second round. Both teams needed a new strategy, especially since aces Shin Sang-hyun (Daegu Sangwon Go) and Kim Taek-yeon (Incheon Go) ended their seasons with the youth national team.
It was Daegu Sangwon Go that took the lead. After taking the lead in the first inning with a two-run homerun to right-center field by No. 3 Lee Soo-ho, Daegu Sangwon added another run in the sixth inning with a double to left field by No. 4 Kang Tae-wan. They added two more runs in the ninth on RBI singles by pinch-hitter Shin Won-hyeop and leadoff man Lee Ho-joon.
On the mound, sophomore Hyun Tak Jeon earned the win with five innings of one-run ball. Sidearm Jang Kyung-woo and sophomore left-hander Lee Dong-young also pitched scoreless innings.
Fellow Daegu team Kyungpook National University also minimized the absence of Jeon Mir, who was absent for the youth national team, with a 6-3 victory over Busan Public University.
