Sigi Schmid needed to rest some of his big guns in the US Open Cup, but still managed to start captain Brad Evans, defender Chad Marshall, forward/midfielder Lamar Neagle and forward Obafemi Martins. Martins returns to the starting lineup after nose surgery and a dominant performance off the bench against FC Dallas.
The rest of the lineup is rotational players and reserves. Troy Perkins, official Open Cup keeper, starts in goal.

Clint Dempsey is available off the bench for Seattle, as are the regular fullbacks and keeper.
