Gyeonggi Sanggo reaches the round of 16 in the Presidential Cup. Masan Yongmago defeated defending champion Daejeon Go.

Gyeonggi Sanggo defeated Hwasungo 13-0 in five innings in the second game of the 57th Presidential High School Baseball Tournament (organized by JoongAng Ilbo and Korea Baseball Softball Association) at Shinwol Baseball Park in Seoul on Friday. The team, which was recreated in 2019, advanced to the round of 16 for the second consecutive year. They will face Incheon Go.

Gyeonggi Sango scored a big run in the bottom of the first inning. Starting with a single by Park Si-hyun, the first three batters drew walks to open the scoring. The fifth batter, Lee Seo-joon, followed with a double to right-center field. A sacrifice fly by Im Jae-won and an RBI single by Shin Seung-min made it 5-0.

In the second inning, another big inning, Park Si-hyun led off with a double and Han Ji-yoon doubled in four runs on four hits and a walk to make it 9-0. With runners on first and second in the third inning, the cold-game requirement was fulfilled when Choi Choo-hyun singled to make it 10-0. Gyeongsangnam-do extended its lead to 13-0 after Han Ji-yoon’s RBI double.

Gyeonggi Sanggo limited starter Jeong Se-young to two pitches as the lead grew. Hwang Jae-hyun, Lee Do-yoon, and Jeong Seung-yoon followed with scoreless innings of 3-4-5.

Masan Yongmago advanced to the quarterfinals with a 5-1 victory over defending champion Daejeon Go at Mokdong Stadium. Yongmago took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning when Daejeon starter Park Bum-jun was hit by a pitch to tie the game at 0-0. In the sixth inning, Lee Jin-sung doubled to make it 2-0. Yongmago starter Kim Hyun-bin continued to pitch a scoreless sixth inning.

Daejeon had a golden opportunity in the top of the seventh. A leadoff walk by Park Ju-jin, a single by Lee Do-hyun, and a sacrifice bunt by Kang Jae-young put runners on first and second. One hit would have tied the game. Yongmago called up their ace, Jang Hyun-seok. Jang struggled with his delivery and gave up a straight ball to Han Ki-chan. The bases were loaded.

Jang induced a grounder to shortstop against Park Bum-woo. Shortstop Jung Ji-sung caught the ball and threw to second baseman Jeon Tae-hyun, who threw to first for the out, but Park Bum-woo reached first. Jang Hyun-seok then got Lee Hyun-soo to fly out to left field to preserve the one-run lead. Yongmago added three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to seal the deal.

Gyeonggi-do won 5-2 in the round of 16 against Gyeongnam. Starter Yun-hyun Yoon pitched five and two-thirds innings with five strikeouts, and Kim Tae-hyun hit a solo home run in the third inning. Gyeonggi and Masan Yongmago will play for a spot in the semifinals at 11 a.m. on Aug. 8. Hwimungo defeated Chungam 7-6 to advance to the quarterfinals.먹튀검증
