Eileen Canney struck out 14 in the U.S. national softball team's third straight shutout and Stanford grad Alissa Haber homered in a 1-0 victory against the USA Futures team Saturday at the World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City.

The game featured a squad of the nation's top players against the best players who didn't make the national team.

Canney (1-0), a rookie on the national team, allowed only UCLA's Megan Langenfeld's line single to lead off the fifth inning and Valerie Arioto's single down the left-field line in the seventh. Arioto was cut down at second as she tried to turn it into a double.

Michigan senior Jordan Taylor threw a three-hitter and retired 11 straight at one point, but yielded Haber's leadoff home run in the third inning that ended up being the difference.

Cardinal junior Ashley Hansen also recorded a hit for the Americans.
