The Korean women’s baseball team took the first step with a disappointing defeat.
South Korea (ranked 10th in the world rankings), led by head coach Yang Sang-moon, lost 8-9 to Hong Kong (ranked 11th) in Group A of the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) 2024 Women’s Baseball World Cup held in Thunder Bay, Canada.메이저사이트
South Korea scored every inning until the 4th inning with Park So-yeon’s timely hit at the end of the 1st inning and Shin Nuri’s sweeping 3 RBIs and 3 bases in the 2nd inning with 2 outs loaded.
However, Korea, which led 7-5 until the 6th inning, gave up the flow by allowing 4 runs in the beginning of the 7th inning. After sending the lead batter out with a hit ball, he was shaken by hits, wild pitches, and walks, and was unable to avoid a large number of runs.
Six countries including Korea and Hong Kong, Canada (3rd), Australia (8th), the United States (4th) and Mexico (12th) participated in Group A of this tournament.
Only when they finish 1st or 2nd in Group A can they advance to the final round of the World Cup to be held in Thunder Bay next year. The top two teams in the host country, Canada, can earn tickets to the final round up to the third place.
South Korea, which unfortunately gave up its first match, will play its second match against the United States on the 10th. The USA beat Australia 3-2 that day.
