    SEATTLE -- Chad Marshall headed in a corner kick from Marco Pappa in the 84th minute Saturday night as the Seattle Sounders completed a comeback from a first-half own goal to beat the Philadelphia Union 2-1. Authentic 76ers Jerseys . The Sounders (6-2-1) won their MLS-leading fourth straight game, extended their unbeaten streak to five and took the overall league lead with 19 points. "I think Ill be thinking about that goal tonight," said Marshall, whose tally was his first since Sept. 14, 2013, while still with the Columbus Crew before he came to Seattle in an off-season trade. "Ive been close a couple times this year, so it was nice to get one, especially at home. And for it to be a game-winner was pretty sweet." During their five-game unbeaten streak, the Sounders have come from behind in four of them to get the result. "We said at the beginning of the season that we wanted to be a team that fought to the very end of games, and were doing that," coach Sigi Schmid said. "Coming back, we made it a little bit hard for ourselves. We had some good chances in the first half. . We didnt put those chances away." Philadelphia (1-4-5) saw its winless streak extended to eight games (0-4-4), tying a club record that was first set in 2011 and matched in 2012. Pappas corner kick from the right side floated into the penalty area just outside the 6-yard box. Marshall ran and headed it high into the net over goalkeeper Zac MacMath for his first of the year. Marshall was also on top of his game at the other end of the field, blocking several Philadelphia attempts and clearing away two that were dangerously close to the Seattle net. "Im a big guy, and Im just trying to get in their way," said the 6-foot-4 Marshall, who has played all 810 minutes this season. "I think I have a nice Adidas tattoo on my back from one of (the blocked shots)." The Union took the lead late in the 13th minute when a long free kick into the penalty area went into the Seattle net off of Brad Evans head. The own goal was the result of a free kick by the Unions Cristian Maidana about 40 yards upfield and slightly toward the right side. He drove it into the box, where teammate Maurice Edu and Seattles Evans both went up for it. The ball flew into the right side of the net and originally was credited to Edu, but was changed moments later to an own goal off of Evans. Obafemi Martins tied it for Seattle in the 61st minute, his fourth goal of the season. The Sounders created multiple opportunities to tie it before halftime, none better than Osvaldo Alonsos penalty kick early in the 40th minute after Philadelphias Amobi Okugo was called for a hand ball in the box. Alonso went toward the right post, but MacMath dived to his left and blocked it. Evans started the play that led to the tying goal when he headed a short ball into the penalty area. Martins caught up with it at the penalty spot, took it to the top of the 6-yard box and shot into a wide-open right side of the net for his fourth of the season. "Its a difficult one to take because we came in and played well in the first half and we got up a goal," Union coach John Hackworth said. "Even in the second half, we had some chances to get a second one, and we didnt put those away. They came back to get back in the game, and Chad Marshall makes a great play on a corner kick - I dont know what to say. "Once again, we kind of let ourselves down." Cheap 76ers Jerseys . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer.

Manager Clint Hurdle says the right-hander will make a couple of appearances in middle relief before the team determines whether to return Grilli to the back end of the bullpen.PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- When the Anaheim Ducks play the Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium, members of the Phoenix Coyotes ownership group will have an up-close view of the proceedings. The Coyotes bought a suite for the Stadium Series game, which could serve as a test run for other warm-weather events, and the team would love to host one next season, president and CEO Anthony LeBlanc said. "Its very attractive to us," LeBlanc said. "Were trying to grow the brand of the National Hockey League in Arizona, which is a non-traditional market. Anything we can do that will help us accelerate growing that brand were going to do." The plan would be to hold it around the Super Bowl, which is set for early February at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. Chase Field, the home of MLBs Arizona Diamondbacks, would be the most logical place. That has a retractable roof, as does University of Phoenix Stadium, which is home to the NFLs Cardinals. "The two stadiums that wed be looking at both have retractable roofs. It gives that insurance policy," LeBlanc said. "And of course theyre doing (the Heritage Classic) game at BC Place in Vancouver, so theres already the legacy of having a domed game." In a perfect world, LeBlanc said, the Coyotes would host an outdoor game with the roof open. But he added that nice weather is "pretty easy to bank on" in early February. "Ninety-nine days out of a hundred its sunny," LeBlanc said. "The last thing we would want, and I think thats the concern with the L. Wholesale 76ers Jerseys. A. game, is what happens if it rains. We deal with that issue. What if it rains and what if its too hot? But from what I understand, the ice-making is pretty phenomenal, and the efforts that theyre going through to ensure that that ice is up to NHL standards is pretty impressive." The NHL is putting on six outdoor games this season: the Winter Classic between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, the Ducks against the Kings at Dodger Stadium; two games at Yankee Stadium, one between the New York Rangers and New York Islanders and the other between the Rangers and New Jersey Devils; the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Chicago Blackhawks at Soldier Field and the Heritage Classic at BC Place in Vancouver between the Canucks and Ottawa Senators. Daly said on Fan 590 that it was the plan to continue multiple outdoor games next season. The Washington Capitals will host the Winter Classic on New Years Day against an opponent that has yet to be announced at a venue that has yet to be announced. If the league sticks to that plan, the Coyotes want a shot at hosting in order to increase interest in hockey in Arizona. "It wouldnt be the impact of the revenue from that particular game, it would be the impact that that game would have on us in selling tickets throughout the year," LeBlanc said. "Our view is that would certainly help us in driving more season tickets, it would help us in driving (partial season-ticket plans). Its just bringing more attention to the sport." Cheap Patriots Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Steelers Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Titans Super Bowl JerseysCheap Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Eagles Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Rams Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Vikings Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Saints Super Bowl Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Giants Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Lions Jerseys ' ' '
