16. Chicago Fire

Following a scoreless draw with the Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Wednesday, Frank Yallop’s Chicago Fire dropped a tough 3-2 defeat to the Seattle Sounders on Saturday at Toyota Park that saw Jose Luis Anangono sent to the showers and both teams playing down to 10 men. The bright spot? Harrison Shipp, with a brace in the 41st and 82nd minutes.

The Fire continue their season on June 18 against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in the U.S. Open Cup at Toyota Park. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT/8:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by Chicago-Fire.com.

17. Real Salt Lake

On Saturday, they suffered a 3-1 loss to the Portland Timbers at Rio Tinto Stadium. Tony Beltran was sent off, forcing RSL to play a man down in the second half. Luke Mulholland was the only goalscorer for Real Salt Lake in the 23rd minute.

18. Chivas USA

In the 20th minute, Erick Torres kept the fires burning for Wilmer Cabrera’s Chivas USA in their 1-1 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy at StubHub Center. But while the Goats are relishing their result in Carson, they have the always-dangerous Carolina Railhawks to deal with in the U.S. Open Cup at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. on June 14. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.

19. Houston Dynamo

Dominic Kinnear’s Houston Dynamo were on the short end of a 2-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City at BBVA Compass Stadium. However, they have a chance to redeem themselves for their lack of winning ways on June 11, when they host the Laredo Heat in the U.S. Open Cup. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. CT/10 p.m. ET and will be televised by houstondynamo.com.
