Before getting to this week's player ratings, a heads-up: Saturday's game time at Real Salt Lake has been moved. Kickoff is now 4 p.m., and the game will air on the main Channel 6 instead of 6.2.

It's nice to get the game on wider distribution... except for the small matter of the Union having to face the defending MLS Cup champions. Granted, Real Salt Lake only have seven points through six games so far this season, with two wins and a draw, but the second of those wins came this past Saturday at home against Toronto.

On that positive note, let's see how you all graded the Union's performance at Los Angeles.

More coverage

Chris Seitz: 5.43
- "Seitz's best game of the year and he only lets in three goals." (Bryan James)

Danny Califf: 4.29

Midfielders
