OWINGS MILLS, Maryland (AP) -- The United States shuffled its lineup in the second round of the International Crown and got the desired result, beating Spain twice Friday to earn its first points in the eight-country competition.

Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr took control on the back nine against Belen Mozo and Beatriz Recari in a 3-and-2 win, and Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis held on to beat Azahara Munoz and Carlota Ciganda 2 up.

One day earlier, the top-seeded U.S. lost twice to Taiwan and was the only country without a point.

Thailand leads Pool A with five points, followed by Taiwan and the U.S. with four points apiece and Spain with three. Japan stands atop Pool B with 6 points. South Korea has four points and Sweden and Australia each have three.
