Oracle-Team-USA-Photo-Guilain-Grenier-Oracle wins back-to-back races Sunday — 14 and 15. The San Francisco-based boat is still down 5 to 8 points overall to New Zealand, and New Zealand still needs just one race  to take the America’s Cup from the defenders.   But what a display of guts and tactics on San Francisco Bay by Team USA with Ben Ainslee and Tom Slingsby reading the conditions and helping to call the moves for helmsman Jimmy Spithill.

Actual races are 8 to 7 for New Zealand but Oracle and Team USA started off with that two-point penalty.
