COLUMBIA, Mo. - The United States Women's National Softball Team won their second gold medal of the year on Sunday, when they captured first place at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, on Sunday with a dominating 11-1 victory in four innings over Canada. Team USA finished the tournament with a 9-0 record, with seven of those wins coming via run rule.
Redshirt junior Chelsea Thomas and three-time Mizzou All-American Rhea Taylor had strong performances again for Team USA. Taylor hit safely in her first four games and finished the tournament with a .357 batting average (5-for-14). She scored six runs, drove in a run, and stole two bases in as many attempts.
Thomas got two starts for the Americans and picked up wins in both of them. She first pitched against the Dominican Republic in the USA's second game of the tournament and tossed all four innings in the 10-0 win. She limited the Dominican Republic to just two hits while striking out seven batters without issuing a walk. She pitched again three games later against Puerto Rico and threw a complete game with 10 strikeouts. Thomas allowed just one run on four hits and issued just one walk in the victory.
