DID YOU KNOW?
  • San Jose's winless streak extended to eight games in a 4-0 loss to Real Salt Lake last week. However, its home unbeaten run also stands at eight games.

  • The Earthquakes' last win, coincidentally, came against D.C. United. A Steven Lenhart hat-trick led the visitors to a 4-2 win at RFK Stadium on June 11.
  • D.C. United lost 1-0 to the New England Revolution in its last MLS match, the second game in a row in which it hasn't scored.
  • Despite being listed as questionable, Charlie Davies made the trip to California with his teammates and could see some minutes, especially with Josh Wolff injured in a friendly against Everton.
  • That friendly finished 3-1 to Everton, with Chris Pontius notching for D.C.
  • Brad Ring (yellow-card accumulation) and Bobby Burling (ejection) will miss this match through suspension.
