TOKYO — Two days before the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony, competition began in soccer and softball, the latter returning for the first time since 2008.

Former Arizona State pitcher Dallas Escobedo allowed two runs in the first inning at Fukushima Azuma Stadium in Mexico’s 4-0 loss to Canada.

Canadian pitcher Sara Groenewegen threw a no-hitter for four innings before leaving with a four-run lead, replaced by Jenna Caira then Danielle Lawrie.

Mexico finished with two hits, neither by former ASU players Chelsea Gonzales or Sashel Palacios. Taylor McQuillin, out of UA, pitched after Escobedo for 1 2/3 innings.

The U.S. softball team shut out Italy 2-0 and Japan won 8-1 over Australia. UA’s Giulia Koutsoyanopulos went 0-of-2, both strikeouts, for Italy, which managed just one hit in six innings off Cat Osterman. Monica Abbott pitched the seventh for the U.S.
