The United States confirmed their place in the Women's Baseball World Cup Finals as they beat Hong Kong to remain undefeated in Canada.

Group A competition resumed in Thunder Bay after yesterday's matches were postponed due to continuous rain.

The US dominated their opposition 29-0 in what is the biggest winning margin of the group so far. 

The result ensured their progression to the Finals as they sit top of the group with four wins from four matches at the Port Arthur Stadium.

They were formidable from the outset against Hong Kong, notching up seven runs in the first innings before they had an out,

They sent 25 betters up to the plate and score 20 runs in the first, including a two-run homer by Alex Hugo and a two-run single by Jade Gortarez.

After two quick outs, the Americans added two more runs in the second innings with three consecutive hits.

The rout was completed in the fourth as seven runs were registered, highlighted by a three-run homer from Jamie Baum to make it 29-0.

Host nation Canada got the better of Australia 11-7 in an entertaining contest.

After two scoreless innings, Canada broke the deadlock at the top of the third.

Australia's starting pitcher Genevieve Beacom walked three hitters to load the bases before Alexane Fournier hit a single with two outs on the board to put her side up 2-0.

Zoe Hicks then scored thanks to a wild pitch before Australia responded with two runs of their own.

A stalemate fourth inning followed but Australia smashed five in the fifth to take a commanding position.

However, complacency set in as they shipped seven runs in the final two innings.

Canada's 3-1 win-loss record was then matched by Mexico who convincingly beat South Korea 10-0.

Competition is set to conclude tomorrow with yesterday's postponed fixtures.

Australia are due to take on Hong Kong, Mexico meet the US, and South Korea are scheduled to play Canada.
