Posted Jul 09 2011 9:59PM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Rookie Maya Moore scored a season-high 26 points, and Seimone Augustus added 20 as the Minnesota Lynx beat the Connecticut Sun 90-67 on Saturday night.

Rebekkah Brunson added 12 points and 10 rebounds to help Minnesota (7-3) pull into a tie with San Antonio for first place in the Western Conference.

Renee Montgomery scored 14 points to lead Connecticut (6-4). Tina Charles was held to just six points and eight rebounds.

The Lynx outscored the Sun 23-6 in the third quarter to pull away for their second straight win and tying the best 10-game start in franchise history.

Moore, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's WNBA draft, led Minnesota's third-quarter push with seven points. She finished 6 for 9 on 3-pointers.
