As well as things went in Portland, they went equally as poorly in Columbus. Orlando City was run out of Ohio on the wrong side of a 3-0 score line, owing mainly to two huge mistakes by a young defender who had been one of the club's brightest lights in the first six weeks.
Me and Kevin Mercer break down the Crew match, as well as Rafael Ramos' red card and the drubbing that followed. We also discuss the club selling out its season ticket allotment of 14,000 seats and look ahead to Sunday's match against Toronto FC.
Joining us in that endeavor is Mitchell Tierney from fellow SB Nation blog Waking the Red. Mitchell gives us the inside scoop Toronto's struggles thus far this season and what we can expect Sunday when the Reds visit the Citrus Bowl.
And our own Louisville correspondent Jeff Milby updates us on our USL affiliate, Louisville City FC. Jeff knows why LCFC hasn't lost a game yet this season and tells us about the club's stadium situation at baseball venue Louisville Slugger Field.
And we give you our always laughable score predictions!
