The United States are now just one step away from securing a spot at the Women's Baseball World Cup Finals following their Group A obliteration of host nation Canada in Thunder Bay.

The two-time champions crushed their neighbours 23-0 at the Port Arthur Stadium in Ontario to take a third win from as many games in the group.

Alex Hugo drew first blood in the opening innings with a run batted in (RBI) single from Remi Schaber through the middle.

The Americans exploded in the fourth innings with 10 runs that included a grand slam as Olivia Pichardo smashed Jaida Lee's pitch over the right field fence.

Another 10 runs came in the fifth before the game was stopped early.

Earlier in the day, Australia earned their first win of Group A with a 10-3 victory against South Korea.

Left fielder Ticara Geldenhuis starred for the Australians as she notched up three runs, two hits, and two RBIs from four at bats.

The result brings Australia just one game behind Canada in second place, which is a qualifying spot for the Finals.

The following fixture saw Mexico power to a 16-6 triumph against Hong Kong for their second win of the group.

Samaria Benitez scored the first run of the match in the first inning before Denise Decide Perez Velazquez stole the show for the Mexicans.

The second base player picked up two runs and a remarkable eight RBIs with a 100 per cent hit rate.

Competition is set to continue tomorrow with the penultimate fixtures, beginning with Australia against Hong Kong before Mexico take on the US.

South Korea then face Canada to close out the day's action.
