USA wins 2-0; Yedlin plays, Dempsey held out

The USA got second-half goals from Mix Diskerud and Aron Johannsson for a 2-0 win over Azerbaijan in a Send-off Series friendly tonight in San Francisco.

Sounders defender DeAndre Yedlin came on in the 62nd minute. However, Clint Dempsey was scratched from the starting lineup due to groin soreness. In a halftime interview, coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Dempsey was all right and should be back in action in "two or three days."
