"Finally at long last, Eijun gets his opportunity to prove himself. After the long road to the mound, Eijun gets to pitch after Coach Kataoka gives him a go, after an impressive round batting. Through Eijun on the batting side of things we see that there is more to him than meets the eye. While we have seen that on the field he is hopeless besides on the mound, he proves here that he has some real meddle with a bat in his hand.
Well while in a normal match he would do pretty decently, this isn’t a normal match. Eijun and the rest of the first years are taking on the best of the best at Seidou. Eijun gets lucky and with some help from the enigmatic Haruichi, he does something that the first years have not been able to do so far the entire game: get a run. Once again Ace of Diamond defies the expectations of the viewer to great effect."
