The auditions keep coming for the Houston Dynamo. After having Daniel
Cruz and Miler Castillo in for trials for parts of the last two weeks,
the club will entertain two more trialists — Costa Rican midfielder
Álvaro Sánchez and an unnamed player — beginning with Friday’s training.

“He’s a good goal-scorer,” head coach Dominic Kinnear said of Sánchez,
who is currently on the books of Costa Rican first-division club San
Carlos. “We’ve talked about improving our attack, and we want to take a
look at him. Hopefully if he scores goals there, he can score goals

Coming into the season, the Houston Dynamo felt the pairing of Lovel

After registering just two shutouts in their first 17 games, the Houston Dynamo are starting to find their defensive presence.

In the past two weeks, the Dynamo have matched their season total for
shutouts by keeping Colorado scoreless July 3 and blanking Toronto FC
last Saturday. The consecutive shutouts are the club's first in MLS play since a string of three consecutive clean sheets from May 30-June 10, 2009. After going seven games without a shutout before this,
the recent form of the defense is a welcome change.

Coming into Sunday’s reserve friendly with the Monterrey U-20s, the
focus for the Houston Dynamo was on two trialists who were looking to
impress the club. However, 17-year-old goalkeeper Fernando Piña stole the headlines after a seven-save performance in
the 3-1 win.

July signals the arrival of summer in MLS, and while
the customary steamy summer temperatures have arrived, the Houston
Dynamo simply don't have the time to sit back and enjoy the weather.

The Dynamo have 20 points and find themselves one point out of a
three-way tie for the third of four wildcard playoff spots. Starting with their
home match against Toronto FC on Saturday (7:30 p.m.),
they have an opportunity with three of their next four July league
matches at home to turn their fortunes in the race for the postseason.
