Mohegan — Diana Taurasi and DeWanna Bonner scored 19 points each to lead the Phoenix Mercury in an 89-70 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Saturday night.

Candice Dupree added 18 points and rookie Brittney Griner had nine points before fouling out as the Mercury (7-4) set a franchise record with their fifth straight road victory and completed a sweep of a three-game road trip for the first time in team history.

Penny Taylor, who missed more than a year with a knee injury, returned for the Mercury and scored eight points.

Tina Charles Had 25 Points And 11 Rebounds To Lead Connecticut (2-7), Which Lost Its Fourth Straight. Charles Shot 3 For 18 From The Floor, But Made Was 19 For 24 On Free Throws — franchise records for both makes and attempts.
