Player Ratings: Individuals excel despite goals conceded against Philadelphia Union

Jeff Attinella - 6 Not quite the performance we saw in Kansas City, but RSL isn't in Kansas any more. There wasn't much Attinella could have done on the header from Edu as it was perfectly placed off the post being completely unmarked. Maybe on the first Union goal he could have had a bit better read.

Chris Wingert - 6 Wingert had a few passes that were way off for no apparent reason. That seems to be happening more often this season making me think something isn't quite right.

Nat Borchers - 7 Positionally, Borchers was always in the right spot this game. That said, he got beat in the air more than we are used to.

Chris Schuler - 7 Schuler had a couple of stops at the last minute that prevented a Union goal or two. Schuler is looking good at home and on the road which bodes well for his consistency.

Tony Beltran - 6.5 Beltran had what I would call his prototypical game. Hemade some good recovery saves, passed well, and generally looked pretty decent.

Kyle Beckerman - 8 Beckerman is in fine form. Except for a couple errant passes into space, he looked very sharp and deserving of the goal he got.

Javier Morales - 7.5 Morales took a beating as per usual and kept pressuring. He looked really good creating, but tried few too many tricks at times and ended up losing the ball.

Ned Grabavoy - 6 Grabavoy had a great chance on goal at the very end of the game that he probably could have done more to capitalize upon. He has had a fairly quiet season so far, but his work rate is always high.

Luke Mulholland - 8 A very nicely placed ball on the PK rebound. Mulholland has fit in seamlessly with RSL and is now earning more time on the field. He gives RSL fans a lot to be happy about.

Olmes Garcia - 6 Once again, the work is there but the finishing is not. If he could get just one goal, I think the floodgates would open. Until then, he needs to find some answers besides depending on simply beating the defender with his speed.

Alvaro Saborio - 5.5 Not the best showing from Sabo. His mark got away from him a time or two and he didn't finish from the spot. He also was visibly frustrated with his teammates more than a handful of times.

Substitutes

Sebastian Velasquez - 5.5 The rust needs to be broken off. Velasquez looked good in the run of play but then his passes were misplaced when it counted. Great to see him back on the field though.

Devon Sandoval - 5.5 There was really not too much to talk about with Sandoval's play. Besides his one shot on goal, he was really not noticeable at Philly.
