GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) - Europe seized command of the Ryder Cup on Saturday, winning three foursome matches and halving a fourth to extend its lead to 10-6 going into the final day's singles.

For the second day in a row, Europe grabbed 3 1/2 points from the afternoon alternate-shot matches at Gleneagles.

The United States won 2 1/2 points in the morning fourballs to cut the lead to 6 1/2-5 1/2.

Twelve singles will be played on Sunday. Europe needs 14 points to retain the trophy and 14 1/2 to win it outright.

The Americans led 10-6 two years ago at Medinah, but Europe pulled off a remarkable comeback to win 14 1/2-13 1/2.

Europe has won seven of the last nine Ryder Cups.
