[NAMES & NUMBERS] The Los Angeles Galaxy is doing its share to keep MLS scoring on the upswing. After its win in Dallas, the Galaxy has scored a league high 19 goals while conceding 16. Only D.C. United, which got spanked by Chivas USA, has given up more goals (17).


19. With its 5-1 rout at FC Dallas, the Los Angeles Galaxy upped its scoring total to a league high 19 goals (in eight games). The Galaxy was already ahead 4-1 when Dallas went a man down with the ejection of Adrian Serioux for a foul on David Beckham, who notched his fifth assist of the season in the game, which drew a crowd of 22,331 in Frisco, Texas.

EDSON BUDDLE went four games without scoring before unleashing a hat trick on Sunday in Los Angeles Galaxy win. Buddle, who turns 27 on Wednesday, joined MLS in 2001 and has 57 career goals. His highest scoring season was in 2004 when he scored 11 goals for Columbus.

6. Toronto FC extended its home unbeaten streak to six games - dating back to last season - with a scoreless tie against Columbus. The Crew is now unbeaten in six games while Toronto has a club record five-game unbeaten streak. The game was only the fourth scoreless match of the 2008 MLS season.

JORGE FLORES, who made his way onto Chivas USA through the televised open tryout known as Sueno MLS, scored his team's third goal in a 3-1 win over D.C. United. The 18-year-old, who played 14 minutes last season, came on as 67th minute sub for his first appearance of 2008 and scored in the 72nd minute. The victory was Chivas USA's first comeback win in its four-year history and ended a five-game winless streak. The win also marked its first victory over four-time MLS champ D.C. United.

2. Two-time defending champion Houston notched its second win of the season with a 2-1 win at Chicago. Dwayne De Rosario gave Houston the lead when he scored his second goal of the season in the 17th minute. Calen Carr equalized 11 minutes later but Bobby Boswell decided the game with eight minutes left. De Rosario's other goal came in Houston's only other win the season, a 2-1 victory over Colorado last week.

JAMES RILEY played 70 games for the Revolution from 2005 to 2007 and scored once. He returned to New England wearing the San Jose uniform and in the 23rd minute headed the ball over his own goalkeeper, Joe Cannon, to gift the Revs' their second goal of the day. Kheli Dube had scored the Revs' first goal of the 2-0 win in 6th minute.

400. New England's opening goal was the 400th scored at Gillette Stadium since it began playing host to international and professional matches in 2002, the Boston Globe points out.

JUAN CARLOS OSORIO, coach of the New York Red Bulls, was ejected during a 1-1 tie with Kansas City in Giants Stadium. "I did not use any bad words," said Osorio, whose team played the final 13 minutes a man down after Dave van den Bergh was red-carded for throwing an elbow at Davy Arnaud, who saw yellow for grabbing van den Bergh from behind. South African Danleigh Borman equalized for the Red Bulls, off a clever pass from Juan Pablo Angel, in the 81st minute. The Wizards had taken in the lead on a first-half header by Jimmy Conrad, his third goal of the year.
