[NAMES & NUMBERS] The Colorado Rapids moved into first place of the West with a win over FC Dallas while the Los Angeles Galaxy fell in Toronto, where its enthusiastic fan support is enjoying a six-game home unbeaten streak. Chivas USA's win over Columbus included a bloody red-card foul by Crew midfielder Danny O'Rourke while Crew coach Sigi Schmid complained about how his top striker has been beaten on. For the weekend's MLS highlights. ...

6. Toronto FC, after a 2-0 win over a Los Angeles Galaxy missing David Beckham (playing with England in Trinidad) and Landon Donovan (groin injury), upped its home record this season to 4-0-2. The Toronto crowd of 20,096 saw goals from rookie Julius James and veteran Jeff Cunningham. It was Cunningham's second goal of the season and his 98th career MLS goal. James, a Trinidadian who played at the University of Connecticut, entered the game in the 15th minute for his MLS debut.

JORGE FLORES. The 18-year-old who earned his spot on Chivas USA's roster last year through the Sueno MLS open tryout, scored Chivas USA's first goal in a 2-0 win over Columbus with a left-footed volley. Flores has now scored in three straight games since making his 2008 season debut in the first of those three. Jesse Marsch, 34, scored Chivas USA's second goal a minute later and he has also scored in three straight games - all Chiva USA wins. "Jorge Flores has been magical so far," Chivas midfielder Sacha Kljestan said.

5 stitches were needed to sew up a gash on the calf Chivas USA's Atiba Harris, received from a foul by the Crew's Danny O'Rourke, who was red-card for it in the 22nd minute.

SIGI SCHMID, the Columbus Crew coach, complained about the beating his striker, Robbie Rogers took. "Unless we want to make sure Robbie doesn't ever play well in this league, we should let him continue to get kicked and beat up the way he's getting beat up right now," Schmid told the Los Angeles Times. "It's been ridiculous the last two games. ... He's getting no protection [from officials]."

4. The Columbus Crew is winless and scoreless in its last four games, after a five-game win streak.

JAVIER MORALES. The Argentine assisted on Robbie Findley's opening goal and scored one himself on a pass from Findley in Real Salt Lake's 3-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes. It was Salt Lake's third win of the season and kept it four points ahead of last-place San Jose in the West. The win also kept Salt Lake undefeated at home this season.

3. Brian Ching scored his third goal of the season to give defending champ Houston a 1-0 win over the New York Red Bulls and put the Dynamo at the .500 mark.

CHRISTIAN GOMEZ notched his fifth assist of the season to set up Colorado's first goal, a strike by Conor Casey, in a 2-1 win over FC Dallas that put the Rapids in first place of the Western Conference.

2004. Colorado's win, in which Tom McManus hit the gamewinner on an assist from Rafael Gomes in the 72nd minute, was its first over FC Dallas in four years. Colorado had been winless in its 11 previous games against Dallas.
