Halftime: Sounders up 1-0 on late goal by Lamar Neagle.
Pregame: The Sounders and Timbers pick up their rivalry with a reserve game at 1 p.m. at Starfire.
There is a very small crowd here in Tukwila, as the unending rain continues, which is pretty much the definition of unending rain.
"Obviously it makes it a little bit more difficult for the reserves because, OK, you’ve got five injuries: That means there are five guys who played last night who will probably be performing in this game – which would obviously make this team stronger," Sigi said. "So again, it is what it is. If we complain about it it’s not going to change anything. It’s a possibility for other people to step up and play."
In any case, here are the lineups:
