[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Luciano Emilio led MLS in scoring last year in his first season in the league, but he hit his first hat trick on Saturday. The Galaxy and David Beckham drew a huge crowd for a San Jose home game in which Edson Buddle stole the show with a treble. For the weekend's MLS highlights ...

EDSON BUDDLE
, with Landon Donovan away on national team duty, hit a hat trick at the Oakland Coliseum, where a San Jose Earthquakes franchise record crowd of 39,872 watched them fall 3-0 to the Galaxy. A majority of the Northern California fans supported the Galaxy. Buddle, who had scored 53 goals in his previous seven years, has eight goals this season, three short of his previous season high.

LUCIANO EMILIO was the weekend's other hat trick hero. The D.C. United forward, who led the league in goals with last season with 20, hit the treble in a 4-1 win over the New York Red Bulls in front of 18,622 at RFK Stadium. Emilio scored in D.C. United opener, then hit a drought before hitting the net in each of the last straight games. It was the first MLS hat trick for the Brazilian, who joined D.C. United in 2007.

7. Toronto FC beat Colorado on Saturday to improve its season-long home unbeaten streak to seven games. In its fifth win of that streak Toronto downed the Rapids, 3-1, on a goal by Danny Dichio and two strikes from Rohan Ricketts. Christian Gomez scored the Rapids' late consolation goal.

1. Real Salt Lake finally won its first away game of the season with a 1-0 victory over Chivas USA. It was Real Salt Lake's first win ever over Chivas USA on the road in seven tries (six losses, one tie). Robbie Findley scored the winner after latching onto a through pass from Kyle Beckerman. Javier Morales was also credited for an assist on the goal - his league-leading seventh of the season.

KENNY COOPER scored his seventh goal of the season to end FC Dallas' three-game winless streak. He hit the gamewinner in a 1-0 victory over Chicago after meeting a through pass from Andre Rocha and slipping the ball past onrushing keeper Jon Busch from 25 yards out. The loss was Chicago's first on the road in 2008.

370 minutes without scoring ended for the Columbus Crew when Chad Marshall headed home its first goal of a 3-0 win at Kansas City. Alejandro Moreno scored the other two for the Crew, which ended its three-game losing streak. Kansas City, which sold out CommunityAmerica Ballpark (10,385) in its first home game in two months, is now winless in six games.
