Success - Article sent! close

When: 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Park

TV: Channel 50

Scouting the Earthquakes: The Quakes (5-7-6, 21 points) are coming off a comeback victory last weekend reminiscent of last season's run to the Supporters' Shield, but that's about all that has reminded San Jose of last season. Former Fire goalkeeper Jon Busch made 8 saves Saturday for San Jose. The Quakes will be without leading scorer Chris Wondolowski (national-team duty) and defender Victor Bernardez (red-card suspension).

Scouting the Fire: The Fire (5-7-3, 18 points) is undefeated in its last eight matches across all competitions, with Mike Magee scoring in seven straight. It has pulled within 5 points of a playoff spot during this streak with two games in hand on fifth-place Houston. Paolo Tornaghi will start in goal in place of Sean Johnson (national-team duty).

Next: Sporting Kansas City, 2 p.m. Sunday at Toyota Park
