Softball: Another U.S. Shutout

The U.S. softball team extended its Olympic winning streak to 19 with a 7-0 win over Chinese Taipei Saturday afternoon at the Fengtai Softball Field.

Jessica Mendoza hit her third home run in two days to pace the U.S. attack, going 2-3 with a double and two RBI. Lovieanne Jung was 2-2 with a double and two RBI. Jennie Finch improved to 2-0, allowing only two hits while striking out six and walking one in five innings.

Next up for the U.S. is the Netherlands in a game scheduled for Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
