Orlando City played about as dominating a game you’ll see from a passing and possession standpoint but couldn’t get the ball to go home in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps. It was a disheartening defeat considering how few home games remain. We discuss the positives and the negatives from the night. We’re also going streaking (not literally) as OCB and the Orlando Pride continued their sizzling runs and both are currently above the red line, which we love.

OCB striker Michael Cox is one of the few holdovers from last year’s USL side and he just scored two huge goals in the young Lions’ 3-0 win at Louisville City over the weekend. He’s definitely a man of few words who lets his play do the talking for him, but he was gracious enough to be our guest this week and answer my questions in an exclusive interview. (Note: My apologies for the audio quality during the interview as it seemed we didn’t have a great connection.)

Plus, we’ve got our mailbag (tweet us with hashtag #AskTMLPC ), our key match-ups and predictions for a trip to New England to play the Revolution, and a little Hex talk as the USMNT prepares for Costa Rica and Honduras.

Here’s the way No. 101 unfolded:

0:12- Losses that should be wins don’t feel any better than losses that are more than deserved. They feel worse when your ex-player scores the winner. But hey, we’ve got our MotM picks and we do get to discuss the Pride and OCB.

36:39- Michael Cox fired in two goals Saturday to help sink first-place Louisville City in Kentucky. Instead of going to Disney World, he gets to talk to us instead.

48:06- Our #AskTMLPC mailbag, plus our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City at New England.
