Heather O'Reilly assisted Amy Rodriguez on a 28th minute goal, then was helped by Carli Lloyd on a 69th minute goal as the world number-one raked US Women's National Team, for the second time in four days, shut out Japan, the world's fourth-best women's team, 2-0 in an international friendly Wednesday at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC.

In the first game of a two-game series Saturday at Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH, Abby Wambach had a goal and an assist to led the US to victory.

Wednesday's win was the USWNT's 51st straight domestic victory in a row and continued the team's efforts to ready themselves for playing in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany.
