SEATTLE (AP) Brad Evans and the Seattle Sounders are in an unfamiliar position.

Never before has there been this much uncertainty heading into the final two months of the MLS season about whether the Sounders will make the playoffs.

"We haven't been in this position before. I haven't been in this position before," Evans said. "I told my wife with the way results are going it's definitely going to be a sprint to the finish."
