In part two, analysis after the Union dropped a tough game at home against the west-leading San Jose Earthquakes.  A last-minute goal by Steven Lenhart of the Quakes broke a 1-1 tie, sending the Union to defeat at home for the second time this year.

Gabriel Gomez scored for Philadelphia, giving him a team-leading three on the year.

While the Union’s defense played well for the most of the game, the team was unable to generate much offense.  Philadelphia beat Seattle last year, 2-0, with goals from Freddy Adu and Brian Carroll.
