Rapids, Earthquakes play to scoreless draw

AP - Sports

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Clint Irwin made seven saves in the Colorado Rapids' fourth shutout in five matches, a 0-0 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night.

Irwin lowered his goals-against average to 0.83, making four critical stops to preserve the tie for the Rapids (4-2-3) in their first game since losing leading scorer Vicente Sanchez to a sprained knee.

Irwin got just enough of a touch on Chris Wondolowski's 88th-minute shot to push it into the far post, where it caromed back out, costing the Earthquakes (1-3-4) a chance for their second straight home victory.

The teams also tied 0-0 in Colorado on April 19.

In the 62nd minute, Irwin made a reaction stop on Atiba Harris' powerful 14-yard attempt. Irwin also turned aside a couple of solid chances for San Jose late in the first half, palming away Wondolowski's header in the 30th minute and knocking down a free kick from Khari Stephenson 6 minutes later.

Stephenson, making his first start of the season for San Jose, sent a 25-yard effort just over the crossbar in the 25th minute.

San Jose lost right back Andreas Gorlitz, an MLS newcomer, to a right knee injury just before halftime.
