against Hong Kong in Group B of the Hangzhou Asian Games group stage
held at the first stadium of Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center near Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 1st.
An easy victory was expected due to the large difference in power,
but the batting line did not work out and the game was close 3-0 until the 7th inning.
A frustrating game continued in the 2nd and 3rd innings,
with missed opportunities with one out and 2nd base and no outs on 1st and 2nd bases.

Kim Hye-seong said about Hong Kong pitchers’ slow balls in the 80-90 km/h range,
“It’s the first time I’ve seen such a slow ball since middle school,”
“I think we had a difficult game at the beginning of the game because none of our team’s hitters were able to get the timing right.”
She continued, “In the second half of the game,
everyone relaxed and our batting skills came back to life, allowing us to score a lot of runs.
We won with a cold game, so we will be able to go into tomorrow’s game with a lighter mind.”
