MLS Regular Season
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Since Martin Rennie took the helm of the Vancouver Whitecaps before the 2012 season, he’s had his team achieving firsts.
First road win, first playoff appearance – both achieved in his first season. Last weekend, the club accomplished a new first – finally scoring a win over the two-time defending champion LA Galaxy.
PORTLAND, Ore. – Reinforcements for the Portland Timbers injury-ravaged backline have arrived.
Gambian center back Pa Modou Kah, who has played the last two seasons with clubs in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, joined Timbers camp Thursday and participated in two training sessions ahead of their Saturday match against Cascadia rival Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place (7 pm ET, watch on MLS Live).
HOUSTON – Coming out of last weekend's loss to Sporting Kansas City one question persists: Has the blueprint been created for beating the Houston Dynamo at home?
SAN JOSE, Calif. — With his heel healed, San Jose Earthquakes forward Steven Lenhart and the club can go to work on the perception that he’s one of MLS’ biggest heels.

Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake meet for the second time this season when they face off Sunday evening at The Home Depot Center. Chivas USA are coming off back-to-back defeats, their last a 3-0 loss at the Portland Timbers last weekend. Real are finishing off a three-game road swing, ending an East Coast trip with a late 3-2 loss at the Montréal Impact a week ago.
D.C. UNITED vs SPORTING KANSAS CITY
RFK MEMORIAL STADIUM, Washington, D.C.
May 19, 2013 (WEEK 12, MLS Game #111)
5 p.m. ET (UDN; KSMO)
SANDY, Utah – In the past couple seasons, if Real Salt Lake forward Álvaro Saborío didn't play, the team – and especially the other forwards on the roster – had trouble finding the back of the net.
If the early part of 2013 is any indication, though, that won't be the case this time around.
