CHIVAS USA AT SAN JOSE When: 7 p.m. Where: Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara. On the air: TV: Univision Deportes Network. Records: Chivas USA 4-12-5, Earthquakes 7-9-6. Record vs. Earthquakes: 0-0-1. Update: This matchup of the bottom-two teams in Major League Soccer's Western Conference originally was scheduled for Sunday but was moved back a day to accommodate San Jose's play in the CONCACAF Champions League. In the first game of three regular-season meetings this season, the teams played to a 2-2 tie at StubHub Center on April 27. Chivas USA finally ended its 14-game winless streak with a 1-0 win over Toronto FC on July 17 but then lost 2-1 to Seattle in its most recent match.

Juergen Klinsmann will not be on the sidelines Sunday when the U.S. plays Panama in Chicago in the Gold Cup final after the American coach was suspended by a CONCACAF disciplinary committee for his actions in the closing minutes of Wednesday's semifinal win over Honduras. With the U.S. in control of that match -- which it eventually won, 3-1 -- Klinsmann became angry with Costa Rican referee Walter Quesada, who let rough play by the Hondurans go unchecked. When U.S. captain DaMarcus Beasley was fouled roughly from behind in front of the U.S. bench in the 87th minute, Klinsmann slammed a soccer ball to the turf and shouted at the official, who stopped the match and sent the coach off. Unlike 2005, when then-U.S.

Chivas USA is last in Major League Soccer's Western Conference, is averaging less than a goal a game and hasn't won a match since March. But you can't accuse them of giving up. On Wednesday, the team acquired forward Erick Torres on loan from its Mexican League sister club, Chivas of Guadalajara, in an effort to jump-start an offense that ranks last in the conference with 16 goals in 18 games. For Torres, meanwhile, the move to MLS offers a much-needed chance to jump-start a once-promising career that has stalled.

Chivas USA knew it was getting a pretty good prospect when it signed 16-year-old striker Caleb Calvert as a homegrown player. And now, less than a week after becoming the youngest professional player in franchise history, Calvert is already beginning to rack up the awards, being named the U.S. Soccer Development Academy's U-16 National Player of the Year. "I feel honored and proud," said Calvert, the nation's top age-group scorer with 22 goals in 27 games for the Chivas USA Academy during 2012-13.
