South Korea (ranked 10th in the world), led by Yang Sang-moon, suffered an 8-9 upset loss to Hong Kong (ranked 11th) in their first game of Group A at the WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup 2024 in Thunder Bay, Canada.

South Korea scored a run in each of the first four innings, thanks to Park So-yeon’s RBI single in the bottom of the first and Shin Noo-ri’s three-run triple with two outs in the second.

However, with a 7-5 lead going into the sixth, Korea gave up four runs in the top of the seventh. After walking the leadoff batter on a hit-and-run ball, they were hit by a pitch, a wild pitch, and a groundout.

In addition to South Korea and Hong Kong, six other countries competed in Group A: Canada (3rd), Australia (8th), USA (4th), and Mexico (12th).

The first and second place finishers in Group A will qualify for the World Cup Final Round in Thunder Bay next year. If host Canada finishes in the top two, the third-place finisher will qualify for the final round.

After dropping their first game, South Korea will play their second game against the United States on 10 October. The Americans defeated Australia 3-2 earlier in the day.
