Miyazato picks up chase

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- No, not that Miyazato. The one you've never heard of, Mika. While Cristie Kerr is holding steady at one under for the day after 11 holes, -11 total, her playing partner is putting on a birdie show. Miyazato started the day at -5, five strokes behind Kerr, but she has reduced the gap to three shots and sits at -8. Kerr is struggling a little more with her putter today and still has a hard time finding the fairway off the tee, but she's looking confident. Meanwhile, the third player in the lead group, In-Bee Park, has fallen off the map after a double bogey on 3 and a bogey at 11. She's now 10 shots back at -1.

Two groups ahead of the leaders, Spanish rookie Azahara Munoz has pulled into third at -5, and right behind her at -4 are Jiyai Shin and Song-Hee Kim.

Could there be a ball game in the making?
