The Americans won the second game of a two-game set with the Swedes, after they drew 1-1 on Tuesday. A crowd of nearly 6,000 was on hand at Rentschler Field.
Rapinone scored in the 33rd minute off a rebound of a shot Shannon Boxx that was deflected by Sweden goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl, giving the U.S. a 1-0 lead.
Wambach scored her first goal in the 45th with a header off a pinpoint corner from Lori Lindsey, and she added her second headed goal of the game in the 72nd when she redirected a cross from Rachel Buehler. Wambach now has 109 goals for the national team, third all-time to Mia Hamm (158) and Kristine Lilly (130).
