Two weeks ago, MLS's Real Salt Lake loaned Chris Seitz
to the Cleveland City Stars. On Thursday, the
22-year-old keeper played for the Portland Timbers. Only this time the result was different.
In his first outing, the 2008 Olympic team backup was on the losing side of a 3-1 game at
Miami FC. On Thursday, Seitz recorded six saves to help the Timbers earn their first point of the season in a 0-0 draw against the Carolina RailHawks in front of 8,549 fans at PGE Park.
All six of his saves came in the first half. Seitz joined the Timbers earlier in the day on Thursday to fill in for starter Steve Cronin
, who was injured
during training on Wednesday. Seitz is on loan through Saturday when Portland hosts Carolina again. April 30 in Portland, Ore. Portland 0 Carolina 0. Portland --
