The United States women’s national team is officially back on track.

Julie Ertz scored two first-half goals and Alex Morgan added another in the 79th minute as the USWNT earned a 3-1 victory over New Zealand in their friendly Friday night.

Hannah Wilkinson added a goal in the second half for New Zealand, which was overmatched throughout the match. The United States held possession for 65 percent of the match, took eight shots on goal and committed only one foul in what was a near-flawless performance at times.

USWNT has now won three straight matches since its July 27 loss to Australia. The U.S. has outscored its opponents 10-4 in those contests and has given up just one goal in its last two matches.

PETALING JAYA: Mixed doubles pair Goh Soon Huat-Shevon Lai Jemie look to have put a difficult spell behind them after checking into the semi-finals of the Thailand Open.

The world No. 33 Malaysians – competing in only their second tournament since Soon Huat returned from an ankle injury six weeks ago – outplayed China’s Han Chengkai-Chen Lu 21-17, 21-16 in 30 minutes at the Nimibutr Stadium in Bangkok yesterday.

The Malaysians will meet top seeds Dechapol Puavaranukroh-Sapsiree Taerattanachai of Thailand in the last four.

A win over the world No. 9 Thais would earn SEA Games-bound Soon Huat-Shevon an impressive fourth career final appearance since being paired up last November.

 Shevon, relieved that they are back on track, hopes to make up for lost time.


MILWAUKEE — Here’s one way for the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright to get back on track: start mashing.

Struggling on the mound to start this season, Wainwright took matters into his own hands at the plate on Friday by driving in four runs including a go-ahead, two-run homer in the Cardinals’ 6-3 win over the Brewers at Miller Park.

Wainwright still has not thrown a pitch in the sixth inning, but Friday’s result was much more palatable. In five innings, he limited the Brewers to two runs on six hits, with no walks and a season-high nine strikeouts for career victory No. 135. That pushed Wainwright past Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean for sixth place on St. Louis’ all-time leaderboard.

“I never had stuff like that one game last year,” Wainwright said. “Even if I’d throw a complete-game shutout, I was just making stuff up out there last year. This year, I have great stuff. I have to be more efficient. If you have nine strikeouts in five innings, you should be able to parlay that stuff into seven or eight innings.”

With India lagging 0-1, Prannoy took the court and the World No.23 saw off Suppanyu Avihingsanon 21-18 21-15 in 39 minutes to bring his team back on track.
