|Fire-Earthquakes Preview (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: July 22, 2014, 8:20 pm]
Coach Frank Yallop's first season with the Chicago Fire hasn't exactly gone as planned, but he still has his sights set on making the playoffs. Beating his former team could give Chicago a much-needed boost down the stretch. Yallop visits San Jose for the first time since departing in the middle of last year as the Fire take on the last-place Earthquakes on Wednesday night. After spending a combined 8 1/2 years over two stints with San Jose, Yallop left last June after the two sides mutually agreed to part ways.

When the whistle blew, the 18-year-old Bailey - a Make-A-Wish recipient from Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia - took the pass from Dempsey, dribbled down the field and took a shot on former U.S. national team goalkeeper Brad Friedel. He was then subbed off in front of 55,349 to a massive ovation while being mobbed by Seattle teammates. I saw the look in his eyes and you could just tell he was overwhelmed and he was so appreciative,'' Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said.

On the verge of the longest winning streak in team history, Chivas USA is suddenly looking like a force to be reckoned with. Coach Wilmer Cabrera's club tries to make it five in a row when it visits D.C. United on Sunday night. "Obviously, we didn't have the start of the season that we wanted," captain Carlos Bocanegra told the team's official website. "We're in the mix and we're giving ourselves a chance, that's the biggest thing." With 23 points, Chivas is sitting a few out of the Western Conference playoff picture.

Galaxy-Sporting Kansas City Preview (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: July 18, 2014, 10:05 pm]
Saturday's matchup between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Sporting Kansas City features not only two of the hottest teams in MLS, but two of the stingiest. Kansas City's defense could be in for a challenge, however, given how impressive Los Angeles was offensively in its last match. The Galaxy (7-3-6) concede a league-best 0.88 goals per game, while Kansas City (9-5-5) is right behind them at 0.89. Los Angeles is 5-0-3 in its last eight matches and hasn't lost since a 1-0 setback in Houston on May 17.

New England, which hasn't won since a 2-1 victory over D.C. on May 24, is enduring its longest slide since starting 0-6-0 in 2001. "We wanted to go on the road with these two road games here in LA today and then Dallas, we want to try and find points - as many as we can," midfielder Kelyn Rowe said.
