Titre original : Reckless Gamble
Seishu holds their first exhibition match against Yokohama Teijin High School. Goro strikes out the first 18 batters and hits 1 home run giving Seishu a 1-0 lead, but then the other guys threaten to cancel the bet since Shimizu is catching, forcing Fuji to step in as a new catcher. Fuji is able to catch the ball, but with Fuji as catcher Goro is only able to throw down the middle, allowing Teijin to start getting some contact. Tashiro makes an intentional error, giving Teijin a 2-1 lead in the 7th. After Goro flies out and Shimizu grounds out, Fuji delivers a speech saying why he wants to play baseball with Goro. Fuji follows it up with a hit as the episode ends, but can Seishu rally?
