Word from Portland this morning that they are within a few hundred tickets of a sellout for the U.S. Open Cup match at 7 tonight. The game also will be on FSN (after the Mariners).

I’m getting an early start down I-5, so I likely won’t be posting again for a while. But in the meantime:

Here’s my game preview from this morning’s paper.

And here’s a preview from The Oregonian.

And finally, here’s a wrap of last night’s U.S. Open Cup action, where MLS sides didn’t fare so well. However, you will notice that one of the MLS sides that did advance is Kansas City — and that’s who awaits tonight’s Sounders-Timbers winner. And if it’s the Sounders, the game will be played Tuesday at Starfire.
