[AMERICANS ABROAD]Americans Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona will have to head back to Brazil in search of another away win if they want Tijuana's inaugural Libertadores Cup season to continue.

Xolos jumped out to a 2-0 lead over Ronaldinho's Atletico Mineiro at a packed Estadio Caliente, but then conceded two goals -- the second a gift in stoppage time -- for a 2-2 tie.

Goals by Duvier Riascos and Fidel Martinez gave Tijuana a 2-0 lead after 53 minutes. Mineiro pulled one back when Diego Tardelliscored off a deflected corner kick at the far post.

Luansilenced the Estadio Caliente crowd when he scored in stoppage time after some horrible defending by Javier Gandolfi.

Castillo played the entire game in his usual advanced left back position. Corona came on for the last quarter of an hour.

Things look better for Fabian Johnson's Hoffenheim in the German promotion/relegation playoffs as it beat Kaiserslautern, 3-1, in the first leg. The second leg will be Monday.

Roberto Firmano gave Hoffenheim a 2-0 lead, Sven Schipplock made it 3-1, and Johnson also added a fourth goal on a header from close range.

Johnson went the distance in midfield, while Danny Williams didn't dress. He has not played a game since the end of March.

    Castillo played brilliantly—probably his best game as a Xolo. The Xolos out dazzled the most artistic team in the Tournament—too bad there were 3 minutes extra time instead of 2—sigh.
