Softball: Abbott Perfect, U.S. Unbeaten

Monica Abbott pitched a perfect game to help the U.S. softball team to an 8-0 victory over the Netherlands at Fengtai Softball Field Sunday evening.

Crystl Bustos powered the American offense, going 3-3 with a home run and two singles. The U.S. rapped out three home runs to boost their total during the tournament to 12, setting a record for most home runs during an Olympic Games. Abbott struck out nine while improving her record to 2-0. The U.S. returns to the field Monday to face host China.
