RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) -- Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot her second straight 68 at the Kraft Nabisco Championship on Friday, taking a one-stroke lead over Haeji Kang after the second round of the LPGA Tour's first major of the year.

Lindsey Wright and Sun Young Yoo are third at 6 under, while Hall of Famer Se Ri Pak is three strokes back in fifth midway through the only major she has never won.

Tseng extended her thorough domination of the women's game with another relentless round of long drives and steady putting. After finishing the opening round two strokes back, she's leading for the ninth time in the LPGA Tour's last 10 rounds.

Pak shot a 69 to move to 5 under. Karin Sjodin and World No. 2 Na Yeon Choi joined Pak in fifth.
