Robert Rock got off the mark and Nick Dougherty had another win to stretch Great Britain & Ireland's lead over Continental Europe at The Vivendi Trophy with Seve Ballesteros in Paris.
The pair defeated Robert Karlsson and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño 5 and 4 to put Paul McGinley's side 7-4 ahead.
The contest switched from fourballs to greensomes - both players drive and then choose one ball - but the pattern was staying the same.
Northern Ireland duo Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy came from two down to win 2 and 1 against Henrik Stenson and Peter Hanson and establish a four point lead.
The bottom two games were too close to call - Miguel Angel Jiménez and Alvaro Quiros had been two up on unbeaten Simon Dyson and Oliver Wilson, but were hauled back to level after 11, before regaining their lead to go one up with five to play.
Ross Fisher and Chris Wood were twice in front against Anders Hansen and Francesco Molinari - they had two out of two as well - before Hansen holed a 25 foot putt from off the green at the 11th. But a birdie at the 14th put the English duo one up with four holes remaining.
