履正社 底力4強、寺島好救援/大阪

<高校野球大阪大会:履正社7-1枚方津田>◇27日◇準々決勝◇舞洲

... 4回戦・八尾戦の6回で公式戦デビューし、4イニング無失点の力投で逆転勝ちを呼び込んだ。「きょうは1点勝っている展開での登板で、きょうの方が緊張しました。3年生の最後の夏に投げさせていただいていますから」と、まだあどけない顔に真剣な表情を浮かべた。

打者7人に対し、32球オールストレートで5奪三振。リードした捕手の八田夏(3年)は「先発の溝田が変化球主体だったので相手の目が慣れていると思い、真っすぐで押して行こうと決めました」と振り返ったあと「他の学校に、見せたくなかったので」とにやりと笑った。カーブ、フォークを封印し、最速144キロの直球押しで反撃を封じた。
