Earthquakes forward Steven Lenhart is expected to miss at least four weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, the club announced Thursday.
Lenhart, who hasn't scored in three MLS matches this season while logging 258 minutes, went down in the 77th minute of a 2-1 loss to New England on Saturday.
"We'll miss him, but as always with injuries it gives guys an opportunity," coach Mark Watson said. "Alan Gordon, who has been working his way back to fitness, is pretty close. Billy Schuler, Adam Jahn, all the other guys that have been working hard and waiting patiently."
The Quakes (0-2-1), after a bye this weekend, will play host to Columbus (3-0) on April 13 at Buck Shaw Stadium.
San Jose Giants
The Giants pounded out 12 hits in a 7-1 win at Rancho Cucamonga in the Cal League opener.
Jesus Galindo began the Giants' season with a line drive single in the first inning. He scored on Mitch Delfino's one-out single, and Ben Turner added a two-run double for a quick 3-0 lead.
The Giants added two runs in the fifth on RBI singles by Turner and Blake Miller.
Delfino had an RBI double in the sixth and Charles Jones hit a solo homer in the seventh.
Giants starter Chris Stratton allowed just one run -- Chris Jacobs' homer -- and two hits in five innings. Relievers Ryan Bradley, Ian Gardeck and Jeff Soptic finished up the win.
Stanford senior Felicia Lee was named the Honda Sports Award winner as the women's swimmer of the year.

A previously scheduled 2016 game with Colorado will no longer be played.
