Regional preliminary round 4. Akikawa Academy’s Ace, Yang, is coolly taking Seido apart! Seido regrettably lets Akikawa Academy gain points to start the game, and they’re sucked into their opponent’s rhythm. And then first pitcher Furuya reaches the end of his stamina under the hot rays of the summer sun … “I want to pitch until the end!” he thinks, responding to the cheers of his team with a burning tenacity. But then he hears a call for a pitcher change … ! To Furuya’s chagrin, it’s time for Sawamura to succeed him and take the stage!! Will this pitching change also change the flow of the game … ?
