The U.S. softball team completed its rain-suspended game against Canada this afternoon with an 8-1 victory at the Fengtai Softball Field.

In a continuation of a game suspended Thursday afternoon due to weather, Cat Osterman (2-0) picked up the win, striking out eight in four innings of work.

The U.S. offense produced six hits, including five in the seventh inning. Canada had led, 1-0, when the game was suspended.
