[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Obafemi Martins scored twice off feeds from Andy Rose two minutes apart in the first half as the Seattle Sounders opened preseason play with a 2-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Ariz. Jairo Arrieta's goal gave the Columbus Crew a 1-0 win over Swedish champion Malmo in Bradenton Fla., while the LA Galaxy and Chivas USA played to a 2-2 tie in a scrimmage at StubHub Center.

MLS: Preseason Schedule

SEATTLE-SAN JOSE. Stefan Frei, acquired from Toronto FC, went the distance in goal for the Sounders against San Jose, which pulled on goal back in the 86th minute when new signing Atiba Harris found Mike Fucito in the box. With DeAndre Yedlin just returning, Jalil Anibaba, a pickup from Chicago, started at right back for the Sounders. Other offseason acquisitions to start for Seattle were Chad Marshall, Tristan Bowen and Kenny Cooper.

PORTLAND-HOUSTON. The Timbers for goals from Will Johnson and Maximiliano Urruti  in the last 10 minutes to win the second game of the day in Tucson nightcap, 2-0, over the Dynamo. The Timbers finished the game with their first team on the field. It included Maryland GA draft pick Schillo Tshuma on the wing.



COLUMBUS-MALMO. Gregg Berhalter's first game in the charge of the Crew wasn't decided until Arrieta's winner in the 50th minute. U.S. national team defender Michael Parkhurst immediately stepped into the Crew's starting lineup alongside draft picks Patrick Slogic (Cornell) and Ben Sweat (USF) and second-year Homegrown player Chad Barson on the backline.

LA GALAXY-CHIVAS USA. New Canadian signing Rob Friend made his presence felt in the Galaxy attack, scoring after just five minutes off a free kick from Juninho, who added the second Galaxy goal. After a switch of players, Chivas USA equalized thanks to goals by Jacob Barron and Matt Fondy.



TORONTO FC-D.C. UNITED. Bright Dike, who is a longshot to earn a Nigerian World Cup berth, scored the only goal in the 85th minute for Toronto in its 1-0 win over D.C. United. Michael Bradley started his first game for Toronto, playing in midfielder alongside young Canadian international Jonathan Osorio.



VANCOUVER-INDY ELEVEN. On the comeback trail after missing the 2013 season with a foot injury, Omar Salgado scored two late goals to give the Whitecaps a 3-2 win over Indy Eleven, the NASL expansion team making its competitive debut. The 'Caps went with mostly youngsters, giving the captain's armband to GA pick Christian Dean. Two other draft picks, Jamaican Andre Lewis and Senegalese Mamadou Diouf, also started.
