Team USA Softball went 5-0 in pool play at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, and will take on a Japan team they defeated 2-1 in their final preliminary game on Tuesday. But whereas the last matchup was just to determine who would have home field, this one is with the gold medal on the line.

If you aren’t in front of a television and on NBCOlympics.com will live stream the match. You’ll need a cable subscription for access.

The Americans have struggled offensively in the tournament with a walkoff home run from Kelsey Stewart the first ball they’ve hit over the wall in five Olympic preliminary games. But the pitching of Monica Abbott, Cat Osterman, and Ally Carda has been sublime. Team USA has conceded only two runs in 36 innings in Tokyo so far.
