Bryans routed, but Dream extends WTT win streak

   Despite a one-sided loss by Bob and Mike Bryan, the California Dream neared a playoff berth with their fourth straight victory on Saturday.
   Bolting to an early lead and then hanging on, visiting California defeated the Boston Lobsters 21-19.
   The 37-year-old Bryan twins fell to Jason Jung and Scott Lipsky 5-2 in men's doubles, cutting California's lead to 12-10 at intermission. All except Jung starred at Stanford.
   Mike Bryan rebounded to win 5-4 in mixed doubles with Anabel Medina Garrigues.
   The Bryans will play the last of their three matches for the Dream (7-4) on Sunday at Philadelphia (4-7).
   California can clinch the second and last playoff spot in the Western Conference with a win over the Freedoms and a loss by the San Diego Aviators (4-6) in Austin against the Aces (8-2).
   If California wins and Austin loses, the Dream will pull within one-half match of the first-place Aces.
   California has three matches left in the regular season.
