Marc Leishman delivered one clutch putt and one perfect 7-iron to keep the International team in range at the Presidents Cup.

Leishman's birdie on the 15th hole gave his side a 1-up lead. His 7-iron that plopped down a foot from the hole on the 17th for a birdie gave Leishman and Angel Cabrera a 2-and-1 win over Brandt Snedeker and Webb Simpson. That was the pivotal match when the foursomes session concluded Saturday morning because of a rain delay.

The Americans and Internationals each won three matches. Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar, and Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth, are now 2-0 overall.

The Americans kept their one-point lead, 6½-5½. It was the first time since 2005 that the Internationals did not lose a foursomes session.
