Canada defeated Japan 6-5 in Okinawa in the first warm-up match towards the Premier 12...   they scored all of their runs early (2nd inning) and then, despite a few silly defensive mistakes

Like anyone in the Netherlands would cheer for '#TeamKingdomNL' instead of simply 'the Netherlands'  You know, in case anyone in the Netherlands cared.

Amazingly, despite only being a six team tournament, at least two countries ( and ) will make their Olympic debut in Baseball in Tokyo.

This didn't age well, as expected :p

 

no, the strike is still on...

 

I only posted a short news/comment because today the games were in a favourable time of the day and I could watch them live...

 

but I won't call a single word of that post back...:finger:

it took 7 innings, but finally :TPE Chinese Taipei scored the go-ahead run against :VEN Venezuela, followed by the second and later in the 9th by a 3rd run...

 

so, they won 3-0 and did qualify for the main round together with :JPN Japan, who won 4-0 against :PUR Puertorico (all of the Japanese runs were scored in the 3rd inning)...

 

VEN and PUR will play tomorrow not to end up dead last in group B, meanwhile JPN and TPE will play a very important game, as the final score is going to be carried over in the Super-Round...

 

 

in Seoul, instead, after :CAN Canada's win over :CUB Cuba, :KOR the Host Nation didn't have any problem in their debut against :AUS Australia...5-0 for the Koreans the final score...

 

Tomorrow, :CUB Cuba and :AUS Australia will fight against each other to keep their hopes to fly to the Super-Round alive, meanwhile :KOR South Korea and :CAN Canada will play a game which most likely is going to determine the group winners and to be carried over in the next round...

:CUB beat :AUS 3-2 in 10 innings.

 

definitely not the mighty Cubans we used to see anymore...:cry:

 

however, most likely this result won't change Cuba's destiny in any case, as I don't see them beating this Korean team in Seoul tomorrow...:mumble:

easy task for :JPN Japan against :TPE Chinese Taipei...8-1 the final score in their favour...

 

a lot closer and more interesting, intead, the late game played in Seoul, where :KOR South Korea won 3-1 against :CAN Canada and basically earned their spot in the Super-Rouind (provided they're not thrashed out by the Cubans tomorrow and at the same time Canada give Australia a lesson)...

 

so far, we know already 4 of the 6 teams going to play the Super-Round: :MEX Mexico, :USA USA (with MEX carrying the win against the US guys over from the preliminary round), :JPN Japan and :TPE Chinese Taipei (with today's Japanese win against TPE also counting in the SR ranking)...

 

if tomorrow in group C everything goes according to plan, :KOR South Korea and :CAN Canada also qualify for the SR, which would lead to a direct match-up between KOR and TPE for the Asian Olympic Quota and to an interesting battle between MEX, CAN and USA for the American Olympic Quota...
