Monica Abbott tossed a nine-inning no-hitter with 15 strikeouts and Stacey Nuveman hit a three-run homer in the U.S. Olympic softball team's 19-0 rout of the Portland All-Stars.

In Tuesday night's game, Abbott improved to 14-0 with her third no-hitter on the Americans' "Bound 4 Beijing" exhibition tour. The U.S. will be seeking a fourth straight gold medal in China.

Crystl Bustos and Tairia Flowers also homered for the U.S. team, which is 52-1 and has outscored the opposition 620-26 on the tour.
