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.

  • The Quakes start the 2013 U.S. Open Cup on the road May 28 against either Charleston Battery or Portland Timbers U-23s, U.S. Soccer announced. San Jose received a bye into the third round. The Timbers host Charleston on Tuesday.

    Diving

    Stanford's Kristian Ipsen earned a berth 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."

    S.J. Giants

    Ryan Cavan had a two-run double in a three-run third against Ted Lilly in the Dodger's minor league injury rehab outing, and the Giants rallied for a 4-3 win over the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Wednesday night at LoanMart Field.

    Cavan, who had his 19-game hitting streak snapped on Sunday, also had a sacrifice fly in the first inning for San Jose, which opened an 11-game trip.

    Lilly was placed on the disabled list with a strain in his right rib cage. He allowed all four of San Jose's runs in five innings.

    Colleges

    The UC Board of Regents approved the plan to build a new aquatics facility on the Berkeley campus. Cal's swimming and water polo teams currently use Spieker Aquatics Complex. Fundraising for the $15 million center is underway and work will begin once the entire amount has been committed.

  • Damon Harrington joined the Cal football program as head strength and conditioning coach. He had been at Louisiana Tech under new Bears coach Sonny Dykes.

  • Stanford first baseman Kayla Bonstrom was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. Arizona State's Amber Freeman was Player of the Year, and Oregon's Jessica Moore and Mike White were Pitcher and Coach of the Year, respectively.

    Golf

    Kim Eaton shot a second-round 73 in the 35th California Women's Senior Amateur at Corral de Tierra. She was at 153, a shot ahead of Watsonville's Juvy Timan (79). In third at 156 was Santa Cruz's Sandy Woodruff (76).
