GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Stacy Lewis didnt even glance at the leaderboard on Saturday in the second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic. She knew better, a lesson well learned from her first LPGA victory this season. The former University of Arkansas standout holds a commanding six-stroke lead in the ShopRite Classic at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, after tying a tournament 36-hole record with a second-round 65 to maintain the lead entering Sundays final round. Lewis two-day total of 130 puts her six strokes ahead of Anna Nordqvist, who shot a second-round 67, and gives Lewis a seven-stroke edge over the third-place foursome of So Yoen Ryu, Azahara Munoz, Katherine Hull and Paula Creamer. The last time Lewis led entering the final round of an LPGA event, she won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic on April 29. The glaring difference in building a lead at the ShopRite, she said, was not sneaking a peak at the leaderboard, which she felt made her play cautious in the Mobile Bay Classic. "I took so much from Mobile," said Lewis, who birdied three of the first five holes on Saturday. "I had a couple-shot lead, but then I think at the turn, I had a five-shot lead and I made the mistake of playing safe, and not really staying into my game and what I was doing. I was worrying about what other people were doing, watching the leaderboard. So today, out there, I made the turn and had a two-shot lead and kind of told myself lets see how big we can get this." After starting strong, Lewis survived a near disaster on the par-four sixth hole, which she double-bogied. She opened No. 6 by driving the first shot into the brush, then battled back to three-putt the hole. Lewis responded by birdying five of the last 10 holes. "I probably should have hit a three-wood off the tee," Lewis admitted. "I was worried about my driver going through the fairway, so I kind of laid off the driver and hit it into the brush, chipped out and then had an ugly three-putt. But from then on, my caddie told me when you hit a bad shot, we gotta slow down, you gotta get back to what youre doing. And I did that the rest of the way. I made a really good birdie on nine, then just followed back on the back." Nordqvist rebounded nicely in the second round, surging from sixth place the first day to sitting alone in second on Saturday after shooting birdies on six holes, including three consecutive birdies on holes 11, 12 and 13. Nordqvist, however, had the streak snapped with a bogie on the par-four 14 and ended by shooting par on the last four holes. Early in the day, the greens were slow, from torrential rain the previous night. But as the day progressed, with the wind and sun, the greens became much faster. Nordqvist noticed the difference. "Yeah, absolutely, especially in the afternoon," Nordvqist said. "Yesterday, it was so windy, so they dried out pretty good, and even from the practice rounds. But today, you were putting spin on the wedges and its tough to get them close when they were tucked in the corners, or tucked in the back corners, because you cant really let it fly all of the way. I thought my putting was great. I made a lot of short putts, and I made, I think, two putts over 20 feet. So that was great." Munoz had a terrific round, shooting a 68 without a bogey. The greens, she admitted, were a little confusing and took her some time to read. "Yeah, it was kind of confusing actually, because I guess it rained a lot overnight and the greens were pretty soft. Sometimes, Id wait for the balls to be release and yesterday it didnt and the balls came back way too much, but it is playing a little softer. The (second hole) I missed it pretty good on the right side, but I made a really nice up-and-down and after that, it was pretty simple." Yani Tseng, the worlds No. 1 player, finished in a four-way tie for seventh. She had a nice spell with birdies on four-straight holes before falling off in the latter portion of the round, stung by bogies on the par-four fourth hole and par-three seventh hole. Tseng closed with a birdie on the par-five ninth hole. NOTES: If Lewis lead holds up at the ShopRite Classic, it would be her third career LPGA tournament victory. She won the Kraft Nabisco Championship last year . Lewis round of 65 is her sixth-straight round that she shot in the 60s . Jennifer Johnson made a stunning jump from being tied for 114 to moving into a four-way tie for 17th with a second-round best 63 . Yani Tseng has placed among the top 10 in every LPGA tournament shes played this year . Mika Miyazato, who was tied with Stacy Lewis for first after the opening round, concluded a wild day that began with a birdie on the par-four first hole, then shooting bogies on five other holes and finishing tied for seventh with a four-under 138 over two rounds. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/

. Wright homered on the first pitch he saw after missing three games, Jonathon Niese and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 on Saturday. ATLANTA -- Andrew Ladd didnt expect a delicate touch on Dustin Byfugliens pass that set up the winning goal in overtime. "I knew it was coming hard," Ladd said. "He doesnt necessarily put it that soft." Ladd netted his second goal of the game in overtime, and Blake Wheeler also scored twice for the Atlanta Thrashers, who beat the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Saturday night to snap a two-game skid. Sergei Samsonov, Stephen Weiss and David Booth scored for the Panthers, who have dropped four straight and are winless in 17 of 22. "I was real happy with our effort," said Florida coach Peter DeBoer, whose team made eight trades last month. "I was proud of how we started the game. We played right until the buzzer." Florida came in ranked 28th in the NHL in scoring, and Atlanta had only seven goals in the previous five games. Then the teams combined for four third-period goals. Ladd gave the Thrashers a 2-1 lead with 18:52 left in regulation before Wheeler added his second goal, and 14th this season, less than 5 minutes later. "We got down two goals, but we pushed back and scored two goals," Florida goalie Tomas Vokoun said. "Were trying to do the best we can. We traded for a lot of guys. Thats stuff you cant control. Its really tough." Weiss 18th goal came on the power play with 12:02 remaining. Booth added his 18th to make it 3-3 just three minutes later. Byfuglien assisted on all four of Atlantas goals, giving the all-star defenceman 31 this season. On the winning goal, he passed from the right circle across the slot to Ladd, whose 25th goal was a tip-in to Vokouns glove side. Last season, Ladd and Byfuglien teamed to help Chicago win the Stanley Cup. This season, theyre fighting to keep Atlanta, which began the night as the No. 11 team in the Eastern Conference, in the playoff hunt. "We definitely needed it," Ladd said. "We foundd a way to win.dddddddddddd Its a big relief. It feels like we should be getting a bonus." On Ladds first goal, the Atlanta captain passed from the red line across the slot to a charging Tobias Enstrom. The puck bounced off Enstrom and caromed to the right side where Ladd had moved into position for a wraparound goal. Ladd has nine goals and one assist in his last 11 games. Florida, which began the game with the NHLs third-best, penalty-killing unit, spent most of the second period on its heels. The Panthers killed four penalties, including Jason Garrisons four-minute high-sticking infraction, but they registered just two shots in the second -- both in the final 1:08. Bryan Little, who hit the right post when shooting at a nearly wide-open net with 1:20 left in regulation, assisted on Ladds winner. Atlanta went 2-2-1 on its five-game homestand despite scoring no goals in the first period and just one in the second. Samsonovs 11th goal, a tip-in, gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead at 5:46. It was his first goal in three games since being traded from Carolina. Wheeler made it 1-1 by tipping in a rebound 43 seconds into the second. "We have been putting up 40-plus shots a night for about two weeks straight," Wheeler said. "At some point, it has to break. Tonight was one of those nights we did all the right things. Guys got in front and we found the goal." Chris Mason stopped 31 shots to improve to 9-10-3 for Atlanta. Vokoun made 32 saves. Panthers defenceman Niclas Bergfors, who was dealt from the Thrashers to Florida last Monday, was disappointed his new team didnt maintain its fast start. "You have to play the whole game," Bergfors said. "We had a good start. We battled. We got a point. That gives us a little boost." Notes: Florida failed to earn its first three-game season sweep at Atlanta since the Thrashers joined the NHL for the 1999-2000 season. ' ' '
