Sounders Beat San Jose In US Open Cup

Lamar Neagle scored the clinching penalty in the shootout as the Seattle Sounders beat the San Jose Earthquakes in the fifth round of the U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night. Seattle won the penalty shootout 4-1 after the teams played to a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of extra time. Seattle converted all four of its PKs with Gonzalo Pineda, Marco Pappa, and Brad Evans beating Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham before Neagle sealed it. Khari Stephenson scored on the first try for San Jose. But Alan Gordon drove his attempt off the left post, and Sounders goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann dove to his right to make the save on JJ Koval's shot. Steven Lenhart put the Earthquakes ahead in the 23rd minute, but Kenny Cooper equalized for Seattle two minutes later on a shot inside the penalty area. Seattle will host rival Portland on July 9 in the quarterfinals. June 25, 2014

Chance To Root For A Winner?

mariners crowdI recently had the chance to attend my first Mariners game of the season. Because of the busyness of my schedule, this was my first chance to take in the 2014 version of this team, and, needless to say I was impressed. It has been a long time since baseball has mattered in Seattle this late into the season. As of this printing, the Mariners are 41-36. Only three other teams in the American League have a better record.
