Almost 40 years to the day since playing their first ever match against San Jose Earthquakes, the Vancouver Whitecaps will face the Quakes once again on Saturday, as the club celebrates its 40th anniversary. But amidst the celebrations, its important the Whitecaps return to winning ways in Major League Soccer against an Earthquakes team that is below them in the Western Conference standings. The Form: Its now four matches without a victory for the Whitecaps who are yet to win against a Western Conference opponent this season, but they have tied their last two games against two of the top teams in Major League Soccer. In Utah last Saturday, the Whitecaps started terribly, going two goals down inside the first nine minutes against Real Salt Lake, but the second half was much improved, and a late comeback ensured the Whitecaps left Rio Tinto Stadium with a point. The Big Question: Will either of the Uruguayans be given the chance to start? Nicolas Mezquida and Sebastian Fernandez made an impact coming off the bench at Real Salt Lake a week ago, both scoring a goal, including a fantastic strike from Fernandez in the final minute of stoppage time to tie the match. Prior to the game, Carl Robinson said last week that the Uruguayan duo had been performing very well in training and wear very close to getting a start in the team. Mezquida has appeared in four matches this season, all as a substitute, while Fernandez started the season but then was left on the bench after a couple of less effective performances. With a Canadian Championship semifinal against Toronto FC coming up on Wednesday, its likely Mezquida and Fernandez will start at least one of the two games. "Everyone will get their chance," said Robinson after training on Thursday. "As a player, all you want is the chance to play and show what you can do, and most of the players will get that chance." The Lineup: Chilean midfielder Pedro Morales missed the trip to Real Salt. Lake to try and heal a back problem that has plagued him in the opening weeks of the season, but if he has fully recovered, he is likely to return to the Whitecaps lineup. Once again, there is a big decision for Carl Robinson in the centre of defence. Last week, Jay DeMerit stayed at home as Honduran international Johnny Leveron partnered Andy OBrien at the back. Robinson must decide whether to stick with that pairing and bring some consistency to the back line, or bring DeMerit back into the eleven. Nigel Reo-Coker played the first three matches of the season but hasnt played since due to injury, coachs decision and most recently illness. Its doubtful that Reo-Coker will be considered for the starting lineup but he could return on the bench. The Opposition: San Jose Earthquakes started the season with a five match winless run, but that came to an end last weekend when they won 1-0 at home to Chivas USA. The Quakes are yet to win away from home this season, losing 1-0 at Kansas City and tying 0-0 at Colorado. Yannick Djalo scored the only goal of the game against Chivas. The 27-year-old from Portugal is still adapting in his first few weeks in Major League Soccer as he gets fully fit, but he is a quality addition for the Quakes this season, joining on loan from Benfica. 2012 MLS MVP Chris Wondolowski has scored three goals in six matches so far this season as he looks to win a place in Jurgen Klinsmanns United States squad for this summers World Cup in Brazil. The 31-year-old has an excellent goal scoring record against the Whitecaps. On a day where there will be plenty of focus on the soccer history of Vancouver, it is fitting that there is a heavy Vancouver presence amongst the Earthquakes coaching staff. Head Coach Mark Watson played for Whitecaps in 1994 and 2005 while assistant coach Nick Dasovic previously played for the 86ers and was a player coach with Caps from 2002 to 2005. Both men are from Vancouver. The Odds: The Earthquakes are yet to win in Vancouver against the Whitecaps in Major League Soccer and the Caps must be favourites heading in. Carl Robinsons team are four points ahead of the Quakes in the standings but have played two games more. The Whitecaps continue to develop under Robinson, but they must start to put together 90 minute performances if they are to get back to winning ways. Where To Watch: Whitecaps against San Jose is live on TSN2 on Saturday. Were on air with a special Whitecaps 40th anniversary pre-match show at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt.

Brandian Ross Raiders Jersey.com) - The Carolina Panthers won for the first time in seven games last week, were without Cam Newton due to a car accident this week, but somehow sit atop the much-maligned NFC South. http://www.cheapraidersjerseyspro.com/Tim-Brown-Raiders-Jersey/. Left back Armero opened the scoring in the fifth minute when his deflected shot rolled past Greece goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis. Striker Teofilo Gutierrez poked in Colombias second goal from a deflected corner in the 58th and James Rodriguez capped it off with a low shot in stoppage time after a slick backheel flick from Juan Cuadrado. David Amerson Raiders Jersey.com) - Thursday marks the official debut of a new dirt racing surface at Meydan Racecourse. Lee Smith Raiders Jersey.C. -- Duke sophomore Rodney Hood is entering the NBA draft.LOS ANGELES -- Adrian Gonzalez had the kind of game that has enabled him to drive in 100 or more runs six times in his big league career. And hes closing in on another one. The slugging first baseman tied a season best with five RBIs, including a go-ahead, three-run homer, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Mets 7-4 Saturday night. "Adrians a day-in, day-out kind of grinder that picks up one, picks up two -- and obviously tonight picks up five," manager Don Mattingly said. "Hes one of those guys who good at driving in runs with a guy on third and putting the ball in play when he needs to. As far as consistency, I dont think weve had anybody quite like him," he said. The Dodgers beat the Mets for the 13th time in 15 meetings and increased their NL West lead over San Francisco to 4 1/2 games. Zack Greinke (13-8) allowed four runs -- three earned -- and nine hits in seven innings, throwing 105 pitches on seven days rest. He struck out four after he was pushed back two days because of elbow discomfort. "Im sure it helped some," Greinke said. "I thought I pitched really well. I felt great again today. And so hopefully thats how it stays. It was just kind of a weird circumstance that gave me extra time this turn." The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner allowed two homers for the third time this season, a three-run shot by Juan Lagares and Lucas Dudas 24th of the year. Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 37th save. Jacob deGrom (6-6) gave up five runs and five hits over six innings and struck out seven after getting reinstated from the disabled list. The rookie right-hander, who was sidelined with rotator cuff tendinitis, threw 86 pitches and also had two hits in his first start since Aug. 7. Gonzalez, who leads the Dodgers with 87 RBIs, gave them a 5-3 lead in the fifth with his 18th homer after Greinke singled and deGrom walked Carl Crawford with two outs. The Dodgers hit three homers against deGrom in a 4-3 road win on May 21, but he has yielded just two in 75 1-3 innings over his last 12 outings. "I felt good. But a lot of outings come down to a few pitches, and I didnt make the big pitches when I needed to," deGrom said. Lagares opened the scoring in the fourth with his third homer after Duda singled and Travis dArnaud reached on a fielding error by third baseman Miguel Rojas. Gonzalez got one of thhe runs back in the bottom half with an RBI single and added a sacrifice fly in the seventh.dddddddddddd Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright was 0 for 5 with two double-play grounders and two strikeouts, lowering his average to .265. The franchises all-time leader in a number of key offensive categories is batting just .206 over his last 26 games with four RBIs and 19 strikeouts, and has grounded into 21 double plays. Manager Terry Collins isnt ready to give him a day off. "I dont think the stars need that stuff. Theyve got to figure it out on the field," Collins said. "This guy is the leader on this team, and we need him out there. But in my time here, I havent seen him scuffle like he has this year. In my daily conversations with him, hes not hurt. Hes healthy. But I certainly dont have an answer to why hes going through what hes gone through." Daniel Murphy had a pair of singles, raising his NL-leading hit total to 157. TRAINERS ROOM Mets: Injuries have hurt the Mets this season. They are 60-70 and 15 games out in the NL East. "I dont think about stuff like that too much, because all teams deal with them," Collins said. "Youve got to play through it. I mean, we lost Matt (Harvey), and thats a big piece. He would have made a big difference. But he wasnt here, and somebody else had to step up. You never want injuries -- but in our case, there are some things we got out of it that we wouldnt have otherwise. If Matt didnt get hurt, maybe we wouldnt have found deGrom. Who knows? So weve found some positives." Dodgers: CF Yasiel Puig, batting .247 this month with no homers and four RBIs in 83 at-bats, got the night off because his legs were bothering him. "I knew he was getting beat up and he said he was tired, so we thought today was the right day," Mattingly said. UP NEXT Mets: Bartolo Colon (11-10, 3.85 ERA) will make his first start Sunday since his mother, Adriana, died Monday at age 63 from breast cancer. After the game, he will return to the Dominican Republic to attend her funeral. Dodgers: Kevin Correia (7-13, 4.87) gets the assignment on his 34th birthday, trying to win his third straight start since Los Angeles acquired him from Minnesota. Correia hasnt faced the Mets since Sept. 27, 2012, with Pittsburgh, when R.A. Dickey beat him for the 20th victory of the knuckleballers Cy Young Award season. Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
