For young and old alike, it was another easy night at the Olympics for the U.S. softball team.
Dot Richardson, the oldest member of the squad at 34, hit a three-run homer Monday and 18-year-old Christa Williams, the youngest player on the team, pitched a two-hitter in a 9-0 victory over the Netherlands.
The Americans, gold-medal favorites in the new Olympic sport, have outscored their two opponents 19-0.
Richardson homered in the second straight game, and Williams struck out 10 and walked two. She didn't allow a runner on after the second, retiring 16 of the last 17 batters. Richardson's homer capped a five-run second.
Sheila Cornell also hit a three-run homer for the Americans.
The Dutch are 0-2 in the eight-team, round-robin tournament.
In other games, China upset Japan 3-0, Australia beat Taiwan 4-0, and Canada defeated Puerto Rico 4-0.
