Wie takes second-round lead in Mexico

MORELIA, Mexico (AP) - Michelle Wie has taken the second-round lead in the Tres Marias Championship, shooting a 5-under 68 to reach 12 under. Wie, who won her lone LPGA Tour title 5½ months ago in Guadalajara, was a stroke ahead of Brittany Lincicome (67) and two in front of first-round leader Ai Miyazato (73).

Lorena Ochoa, who is retiring after this tournament, shot a 73 on Friday, leaving her five strokes behind Wie. Ochoa has 27 career victories - including two majors - and has been the LPGA Tour's top-ranked player for three years. She is stepping away to raise a family and work on her charity foundation.
