SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — A look at Saturday's matches in the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National (all times EDT):

SCORE: Europe 10, United States 6.

FOURBALLS: Europe won the session, 3-1.

FOURSOMES: Both teams each won two matches.

AT STAKE: 12 singles matches Sunday. Europe needs to win 8½ points to win back the Ryder Cup.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood did not make a bogey in foursomes in a 5-and-4 victory over Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau.

BIGGEST SHOT: With a fourballs match all square, Molinari's shot on the par-3 11th rolled by the cup and set up a birdie to regain the lead for good.

BIGGEST PUTT: Henrik Stenson made an 8-foot par putt on the 16th hole for his side to stay 1 up.

MOLIWOOD: Molinari and Fleetwood are the first European tandem to win all four team matches since this format began in 1979.
