MLS commissioner Don Garber reduced the suspension of Earthquakes midfielder Marvin Chavez by one game Wednesday, making the Honduran eligible to play Saturday against Colorado.
Chavez was suspended for two games for elbowing Logan Emory of Toronto FC in the head May 8. He sat out last weekend's 4-0 loss at Seattle.
The Quakes won't have to face Rapids forward Edson Buddle, who was suspended for a reckless challenge of Columbus' Tony Tchani last weekend.
Stanford's Kristian Ipsen (De La Salle High) earned a ticket to Barcelona for the FINA World Championships in July and August, as spots on the 1-meter springboard events were up for grabs on Day 1 of the World Championships Trials in Tallahassee, Fla. Ipsen, the NCAA Diver of the Year, will make his third world championships appearance but first in the 1-meter. "I've always wanted to do 1-meter, but I'm usually doing 3-meter and 3-meter synchro, and three events is a little tiring," he said. "Since I'm not diving synchro this year, I thought I might as well do 1-meter."
