   PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum birdied three of her last four holes Friday to maintain a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Safeway Classic.
 
   The 23-year-old Phatlum, winless in five seasons on the LPGA Tour, followed her opening 8-under 64 with a 66 for a tournament-record 14-under 130 total at rain-softened Columbia Edgewater.
 
   Norway's Suzann Pettersen, the 2011 tournament winner at Pumpkin Ridge, was a stroke back at 13 under after a 63. Germany's Sandra Gal was 12 under after her second straight 66, and countrywoman Caroline Masson was another stroke behind after a 64.
 
   A 72-hole event for the time, the tournament is back at Columbia Edgewater after four years at Pumpkin Ridge. Columbia Edgewater also was the tournament site from 1990-2008.
