– East Japan Great Earthquake & Tsunami Disaster-


A tough baseball team from Ofunato Senior High School

Ofunato Senior High School, only one baseball team among 8 quarterfinalists from tsunami stricken seaside areas, could not win against East Hanamaki Senior High School on July 21.

A go-ahead runner of East Hanamaki Senior High homed in at the 5th round and got additional scores to shake off its tough competitor. Although, it was 1-1 even by the 5th round, 4th batter Sugita made a timely hit after getting consecutive two walks. A cleanup trio of East Hanamaki Senior High played an active role with getting 5 points. Mr. Kohara, the pitcher, allowed giving 8 hits to Ofunato Senior High, but tightened his control over important points. While two runners of Ofunato Senior High occupied on the first and second bases, he made a diving catch at a bunt fly in front of him in the 4th round to cut out the pinch.

Although, Suzuki from Ofunato Senior High scored the first run by a timely hit in front of the left fielder at the 3rd round while they had a runner on the 3rd base, a starting pitcher Ueno gave scores in the middle of the game. A relief pitcher Oikawa also allowed giving additional points and could not take the lead in the game.
