Boniek García might be one of the Houston Dynamo's most talented and experienced players, but he sure is having a tough time getting on the stat sheet this season.

García has made 18 starts this year, but he hasn't scored since the season opener and his only assist came on May 3. For a player of his quality and CV, the struggles are puzzling and something he and Houston hope to correct when they host the Philadelphia Union on Friday night (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

Plenty has changed since DaMarcus Beasley and Maurice Edu were last in MLS, but while the two recent recruits may still be adjusting to the novelty of their surroundings, they are very familiar with each other.

The U.S. internationals are set to face off on opposite sides on Friday night at BBVA Compass Stadium as the Dynamo host the Philadelphia Union in a big Eastern Conference clash (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS), but five years ago they were title-winning teammates.

It’s been a short week for the Houston Dynamo, going from a Sunday game in Seattle to a Friday home game against the Philadelphia Union (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS). For forward Will Bruin, the hope is that it’s just enough to keep him in the starting lineup.

Think of it as a dozen rivalry matches between now and the end of the regular season. The Dynamo go into Friday’s home game with the Philadelphia Union (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS) knowing that from here on in, every match pits them against Eastern Conference opponents.

The bounces did not go the way of the Houston Dynamo Sunday night and not just because of the turf at Century Link Field.

In a relatively even game, it came down to chances. The Seattle Sounders converted theirs, and Houston didn’t.

Marco Pappa scored a goal off a deflection in the 69th minute, Gonzalo Pineda followed with a penalty kick in the 74th and Seattle (13-5-2) managed to hang on despite a late red card for star forward Obafemi Martins.
