    Do they run the bases counterclockwise in Australia?

    Japan beat Korea, so if Australian takes care of business against China and Czechia (as we should ); Australia will qualify for the knockout stages for the first time ever!

    Yes, we start at 10 runs each, and take runs away. First to zero wins!

    The environment in this dr Venezuela game is crazy!!! It’s like a playoff game atmosphere in the first inning of the first game

    these teams are absolutely loaded too. If you love baseball you should be watching this on fs1 right now, this is baseball at its best

    I’m glad to see Great Britain designed their uniforms after their food

    Australia defeated China, on track to qualify for the knockout stages.

    A loss to Japan, but not embarrassing. Ohtani is my favourite player, he’s something else. Win against Czechia later today, and we’re out of the group stage for the first time ever! I’m nervous.

    Yep, Japan is looking tough. The game has been big there for a while but has really exploded. Ichiro affect maybe....They might start kicking butt at these things....Feels like the level of play is getting really high there.

    Bad start for the USA against Mexico. Nick Martinez doesn’t look good so far giving up a two run home run smh.

    offense is going to have to bail out the pitching
