It looks like Brad Evans' injury at the end of Wednesday's match with the LA Galaxy was on the serious side, as he's totally out of the matchday squad for Leg 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Lamar Neagle, apparently out of favor, has also been left out of the squad. Oniel Fisher makes the starting XI over injured Leo Gonzalez, and Jimmy Ockford makes the Seattle bench over Dylan Remick. Marco Pappa makes a return after being left out of Wednesday's match due to a slight injury. Osvaldo Alonso, as expected, is still out with a groin injury.
