[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS/VIDEO] The New York Red Bulls came alive and thumped D.C. United as Juan Pablo Angel struck twice. Taylor Twellman announced his return to form in his injury-plagued season but Chicago kept up its dominance over the Revs. Colorado fell at home while Kansas City held off Chivas USA's comeback attempt. For the weekend's MLS highlights ...


JUAN PABLO ANGEL. The New York Red Bulls (nee MetroStars) won the 49th regular-season game of the I-95 rivalry with D.C. United, 4-1, in Giants Stadium. When they met the first time this season D.C. United won by the same score, but Angel missed the clash with injury. This time he struck twice, on a free kick to tie the game at 1-1 and by lobbing keeper Jon Conway to make it 3-1. Mike Magee and Sinisa Ubiparipovic scored the other Red Bull goals. Angel, who scored 19 goals last season, has 6 so far this year. VIDEO

120. Moreno's goal, a header that gave the D.C. United its fleeting lead against the Red Bulls, upped his all-time league scoring lead to 120 goals.

TAYLOR TWELLMAN, the league's fifth all-time leading scorer, came into 2008 with 91 goals but has been plagued by injury in this his seventh season. He made his first start of 2008 against Chicago on Saturday and scored in the third minute. But Chicago responded with goals by Gonzalo Segares and Wilman Conde to notch a 2-1 win. Chicago has now beaten the Revs in all three of their encounters this season. VIDEO

2. New England's loss to Chicago was only its second in its last 18 games in all competitions.

100. In Chivas USA's 3-2 loss to Kansas City, Mexican midfielder Francisco Mendoza, 23, became the first Chivas USA player in franchise history to appear in 100 regular-season games.

 

25. Kansas City took a three-goal lead against Chivas USA with goals by Sasha Victorine, Claudio Lopez and Davy Arnaud before Carey Talley and Justin Braun struck for Chivas USA in the 3-2 Wizards' win. Kansas City is now one of four teams at the bottom of the Eastern Conference - along with D.C. United, New York and Toronto - tied on 25 points. VIDEO

CHAD BARRETT, who joined FC Toronto via the Brian McBride to Chicago transfer, scored on a free kick to give the Canadian club a 1-0 win in a game that saw 8 yellow cards and a red to Colorado's Colin Clark in the 70th minute. The Rapids outshot Toronto, 21-8, and 10-2 in shots on goal. VIDEO
