[U.S. OPEN CUP] While the Seattle Sounders are chasing the New York Greek-Americans' record of three straight Open Cup titles, the Chicago Fire is one win away from tying Bethlehem Steel and Maccabi Los Angeles for the record for the most Open Cup championships with five. The Fire moved into the final against Seattle with a 2-1 win over USL PRO's Richmond Kickers on Tuesday, their third win in nine days.

Sebastian Grazzini scored from the penalty spot and Dominic Oduro added an insurance goal as the Fire moved into the final for the first time since 2006.

The Fire won in 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2006 and finished runner-up in 2004. Its six appearances in the final are the most by an MLS club.

Cameroonian defender William Yomby scored the Kickers only goal on a header in the 68th minute.
