RSL beats Union; six points behind Seattle

Real Salt Lake beats Philadelphia, 2-1. RSL moves to within six points of Seattle with two games remaining in hand.

One MLS game tonight, but it's one that the Sounders and Sounders fans will want to keep tabs on: Philadelphia at Real Salt Lake.

RSL starts the game nine points behind the Sounders ... but having played three fewer games.

Here's a quick update from

Real Salt Lake and Philadelphia Union finally meet at Rio Tinto Stadium, in a game moved from April due to RSL’s participation in the CONCACAF Champions League final. Real put an end to a two-game losing streak last weekend, a 1-0 win at Chivas USA. Union were unable to play last weekend, their fixture with New England postponed due to Hurricane Irene; they are winless in their last five games after a 2-1 loss at Columbus two weekends ago.

Unfortunately, it is not televised. However, you can get a preview and follow along with the game here.
