VANCOUVER -- Eric Hassli could not have picked a better time to end a lengthy Major League Soccer scoring drought Saturday. In fact, he had only seconds to spare. The second-half substitutes last-minute goal in added time gave the Vancouver Whitecaps a come-from-behind 2-1 victory Saturday over the San Jose Earthquakes before a crowd of 19,271 at B.C. Place Stadium. It was Hasslis first MLS goal since last August. He had gone 17 league games over two season without a goal. "Its a great feeling," said Hassli. "I would like to thank all the Vancouver fans, because I got a lot of messages via Twitter. It was just amazing. Theyve got my back. So I would like to dedicate this goal for everybody -- because they deserve it." The Whitecaps improved to 5-2-3 while extending their unbeaten streak to three league games and four overall, including Canadian championship play. The league-leading Earthquakes (7-2-1) saw their unbeaten streak end at seven games. Hassli helped the Whitecaps post their first comeback win since entering MLS in 2011. Vancouver is also just one win away from the six wins that it managed all of last season and the Whitecaps avenged a 3-1 loss to San Jose earlier this month. "To get the win the way we did, I just think, shows what the club is starting to become," said first-year Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie. "Its a club that believes, a team that believes, it can win -- even if its the last minute, even if its in stoppage. They keep going." After taking a pass from Davide Chiumiento, Hassli fired home a shot that hit both San Jose goalkeeper Jon Buschs outstretched hand and the far post before going in. The goal came a few seconds before final whistle sounded following the fourth of added time. Hassli, a Frenchman who turned 31 on Thursday, scored 10 goals to rank among league leaders in 2011 before he went into his lengthy dry spell. The messages of encouragement from fans had come over the course of several months. He was glad that he could finally reward them for their support. "Its important for me to give something back, because I play for them," he said. "If we dont have fans, soccer is nothing. We are lucky to have all these fans." The goal came after Hassli missed the net from the right side moments earlier in added time. Although he had not scored in league play since last summer, Hassli did tally in the first leg of a two-game Amway Canadian championship series Wednesday in Edmonton. But, "yes, for sure," Saturdays goal meant more. Chiumiento was feeling pretty good, too, after he factored into the goal after also subbing on in the second half for his first league action in four games. "I was disappointed for sure (not to) start today, and the other games that I stayed on the bench," said Chiumiento. "But thats the decision of the coach, and it works. We are winning, so Im for that -- for my teammates, for the staff -- but as a player, you want to always play." San Jose lost for the first time this season after leading in a game. Earthquakes coach Frank Yallop, an English-born Canadian who grew up in Vancouver and has also coached Canadas national team, said his squad grew tired following some tough recent games. "We didnt give up, but we gave up a bad goal at the end," said Yallop. Gershon Koffie also scored for the Whitecaps in the first half as the hosts overcame a 1-0 deficit. MLS scoring leader Chris Wondolowski scored for the Earthquakes. It was his 11th goal of the season. "My goal means nothing with the loss," said Wondolowski, who was disappointed the Quakes allowed two goals late in each half. Vancouver enjoyed more chances than San Jose in the first half. However, the hosts were forced to play catch-up after allowing an early goal. Wondolowski ran onto a Marvin Chavez left-footed cross from the right flank and headed the ball past Vancouver goalkeeper Joe Cannon in the 15th minute. In the 40th minute, Koffie headed in Brazilian striker Camilos curling cross-field free kick from about 25 yards out. Koffie stuck out his chest in triumph after scoring just his second MLS career goal. "I felt the first half wasnt good enough, and I think we made that clear to our players at half-time," said Vancouver coach Rennie. "We really wanted to see a lot more. I felt that we let the fans down a little bit in the first half, which is the first time I could really say that about and I wanted to see how much character they had to improve." Vancouver had a total of eight corner-kicks, four in each half. On the other hand, San Jose could only generate one the entire game. Hasslis late goal spoiled a strong effort from Earthquakes goalkeeper Busch, who made five saves, including four in the second half alone. Whitecaps goalkeeper Cannon was credited with four saves, with the toughest being the first of his three second-half saves. He dove to stop a Chavez shot after the Earthquakes midfielder made a quick run down field on a counter-attack following a Whitecaps free kick. "Thats probably the biggest win of the franchise," said Cannon. "I dont think weve had one with a send-off like that, and its great to see (Hassli) get it, because everyone knows his trials and tribulations." Cannon was grateful to Hassli for giving the club the late win after San Jose had netted the early goal. "I might even French-kiss him tonight," joked Cannon. Hasslis response? "Yeah, Im still waiting," said the native of Sarreguemines, France. But at least his long-awaited league goal has arrived.

(Sports Network) - Both the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs are rich with baseball history, but neither club will get to witness another milestone in their rare meeting this weekend. New York, looking to match its longest winning streak of the season, visits Wrigley Field for the first time in eight years this afternoon without Derek Jeter in the opener of a three-game set versus Chicago. The Yankees resume interleague play with a 146-103 record versus the National League, good enough for the most wins and highest winning percentage (.586) of any team in such games. However, just one of those wins have come at Wrigley Field, where New York last visited back in 2003. The Bronx Bombers took the opener of that June series, but lost the next two. New York had to wait for its revenge, finally getting it with a three-game home sweep of Chicago in 2005. The Yankees have also swept the Cubs twice in the World Series, doing so back in 1932 and 38. Chicago, though, will not have to worry about Jeter reaching his 3,000-hit milestone on their field. The shortstop was placed on the disabled list Tuesday due to a strained right calf and remains stuck on 2,994 career hits. The Yanks come to the Windy City fresh off a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers. After opening the set with a pair of 12-4 victories, New York needed extra innings to finish off Texas, securing a 3-2 win when Brett Gardner singled in Curtis Granderson in the 12th inning. Granderson ended with three hits, Robinson Cano had a pair of hits and scored twice, while Jorge Posada and Russell Martin each drove in a run to help the Yankees win for the sixth time in seven games and stay 1 1/2 games back of the Red Sox for first place in the American League East. A victory today would match New Yorks season-best four-game win streak set from May 29-June 1. Success versus the Cubs and in interleague play is nothing new to Freddy Garcia, who takes the mound for the Yankees today. Garcia has made six previous starts versus the Cubs and is a perfect 4-0 with an excellent 1.47 earned run average in that span. Those outings are part of a solid interleague career in which the 34-year-old is 21-9 with a 2.91 ERA in 37 starts. His win total is tied for tthe third-most in interleague history, and hell look to add to that column today in his first start at Wrigley Field since 2005 with the White Sox.dddddddddddd The right-hander bounced back from a shaky loss to Boston on June 7, in which he allowed four runs in just 1 2/3 innings -- to best the Indians in a 9-1 triumph on Sunday. Garcia was charged with just one run on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings, winning for the third time in four starts and improving to 5-5 with a 3.60 ERA this season. He got out of some situations where they had runners in scoring position, said Yankees manager Joe Girardi of Garcia, who is holding opponents to a .134 average with runners in those situations this season. I thought that was important. It allowed us to build our lead. While Garcia is unbeaten versus the Cubs, counterpart Doug Davis is still searching for that first elusive victory in a Chicago uniform. Davis dropped his first five starts with the club since joining the rotation on May 14 before getting a no-decision in Sundays 4-3 setback to the Phillies. The 35-year-old southpaw was in line to get the win after giving up two runs on five hits and five walks over five innings before the Cubs bullpen stumbled down the stretch. Davis did lower his season ERA to 5.90, but remained winless since May 5, 2010 while with the Brewers. Davis will face the Yankees for the first time since June 14, 2007 today and is 3-2 with a 6.28 ERA in six lifetime starts against them. He is also 7-11 with a 4.55 ERA in 31 interleague games, including 26 starts. Chicago will try to duplicate its offensive performance from Thursday, when it set a season-high run total in a 12-7 victory over Milwaukee that gave the Cubs three victories in the four-game set. Kosuke Fukudome fell a double shy of the cycle, smashing a three-run homer as part of a four-RBI day while scoring three runs. Former Yankee Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Pena also homered. Matt Garza benefited from the runs to snap a two-start losing streak, as he gave up five runs on six hits with three walks and as many strikeouts over six innings. I settled down after the third inning, Garza said. It was a little crazy, a little nuts those first three innings. ' ' '
