OLYMPIC ROUNDUP

Softball

Feel free to move on to the next section if the details of the latest U.S. rout bore you. It was a nine-run first inning against the hostesses on the way to a 9-0 win over China, leaving the Americans two wins from another gold medal. Their win streak is up to 23; two more and they get another gold before their sport goes off the docket until at least 2016.

Women's soccer

Get ready for a rematch. Just like in 2004, the final will pit the United States and Brazil. The Americans advanced by beating Japan 4-2. Brazil got there with a 4-1 victory over Germany.

Men's water polo

The U.S. beat Germany and won its preliminary group, earning an automatic berth in the semifinals. The Americans are guaranteed of finishing at least fourth, which would match their best since 1988. "It's a great feeling," captain Tony Azevedo said. "We're definitely the underdog story."

Weightlifting

Heavyweight Andrei Aramnau of Belarus broke three world records to win his country's first Olympic gold in weightlifting. He set world records in the snatch, becoming the first man in the weight class to lift 200 kilograms (440.9 pounds); the clean and jerk (236 kg, or 520.3 pounds) and with his total (436 kg, or 961.2 pounds).

OLYMPIC UTAHNS

Baseball

With two games left in the eight-team round-robin qualifying tournament, Matt Brown went 1-for-3 with an RBI in helping the United States (3-2) to a 9-1 victory over host China (1-4). Pitcher Kevin Jepsen wasn't called on in the game.

• Steve Green pitched a scoreless inning and Ryan Radmanovich went hitless in his one at-bat as a pinch-hitter as Canada (1-4) dropped closer to missing out on medal-round play following a 1-0 loss to Japan.

Men's basketball

• Deron Williams tallied nine points, five assists and four rebounds and Carlos Boozer contributed six points and as many boards as the United States (5-0) completed Group B play in perfect fashion, sending Germany (1-4) home with a wallop. The U.S. advances to Wednesday's quarterfinals, set to face Australia.

Behind Andrew Bogut's 23 points in just 16 minutes of play, Australia (3-2) handed Lithuania (4-1) its first Olympics loss, 106-75. But the outcome had little bearing on quarterfinal seeding in Group A — Lithuania will still enter Wednesday's quarterfinals as the group's No. 1 seed and Australia its fourth and last qualifier.

• Raul Lopez played nearly 13 minutes and scored seven points with two rebounds and two assists as Spain (4-1) nearly doubled up Angola (0-5), 98-50.

After their 2007 European Championships title gave them high hopes going into the Olympics, Andrei Kirilenko and Russia (1-4) are headed home after their pool-ending 91-79 loss to defending champion Argentina (4-1). Kirilenko finished with a team-high 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting and added a Russia-best nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot.

Beach volleyball

• Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal suffered their first Olympics defeat in five matches, but it came in quarterfinals — 21-19, 21-16 to the Brazilian side of Ricardo-Emanuel, the defending Olympic champions — and resulted in their elimination from competition.

Men's volleyball

• Ryan Millar was the team points leader with five kills, four blocks and an ace and Rich Lambourne added four digs as the United States (5-0) swept Japan (0-5), 25-18, 25-13, 25-21. The Americans finished atop their group and will face Serbia in Wednesday's quarterfinals.

• Joel Silva and Venezuela (1-4) closed out their Olympics-debut appearance with a four-set loss to Bulgaria (3-2). Venezuela needed to beat Bulgaria and get some help from other match results to realize its slim hopes to advance to Wednesday's quarterfinals.

Volleyball

Logan Tom and the United States advance to the quarterfinals against Italy, which like the U.S. finished second in its six-team group. The winner advances to meet the Cuba-Serbia winner in the semifinals; the loser is eliminated.
