[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Real Salt Lake had its best second half in club history. D.C. United made a spectacular comeback in New York. Los Angeles remains winless after tying with a late goal for the second straight game. Chicago came back against floundering defending champ Columbus to remain the league's only undefeated team. Week 6 also saw the first coaching casualty of the season.

0-2-4. Its 2-2 tie with Chicago extended the Columbus Crew's worst start ever for a defending champ with two losses and four ties. The Crew took a 2-0 lead on first-half goals by Chad Marshall and Alejandro Moreno. But Brian McBride and Gonzalo Segares scored in the final four minutes to keep Chicago as the league's only undefeated team. The Crew's Gino Padula was ejected for a foul on Cuauhtemoc Blanco. McBride's goal was his league-leading fifth of the season. VIDEO


JOHN CARVER. After Toronto FC beat Chivas USA, 1-0, on Wednesday, and before its 1-0 win over Kansas City on Sunday, its head coach announced his resignation for unspecified "personal reasons." The Englishman, hired February, 2008, leaves with a 11-15-10 record. He guided Toronto to a 2-2-2 record this season. Now 3-2-2, Toronto is in first-place in the East.

11. The San Jose Earthquakes fell, 2-0 at Seattle and are now 0-6-5 on the road since June of last season. Seattle keeper Kasey Keller returned from a red-card suspension and extended his shutout streak to 389 minutes. Steve Zakuani and Brad Evans scored Seattle's goals. VIDEO

LANDON DONOVAN. A week after he assisted on a late goal to earn Los Angeles a 1-1 tie at San Jose, Donovan scored with eight minutes left to give the Galaxy a 1-1 tie with Colorado. Los Angeles, however, remains winless at 0-1-4. It was the third goal of the season for Donovan, who last year led the league with 20 strikes. VIDEO


6. Real Salt Lake became the third team in MLS history to score six goals in a half. Jamison Olave, Clint Mathis, Yura Movsisyan, Luis Miguel Escalada, Andy Williams and Robbie Findley all scored in the second half of the 6-0 rout of New England, which had never suffered such a big loss in its 14-year history. Real outshot the Revs, 29-6. VIDEO

ATIBA HARRIS scored and was red-carded in Chivas USA's 2-0 win over FC Dallas. Alecko Eskandarian scored Chivas USA's second goal in stoppage time after meeting a through ball from 20-year-old Gerson Mayen, a 82nd minute sub. Chivas USA (5-1-0) is in first place in the West, four points ahead of Seattle. VIDEO

36. D.C. United was trailing, 2-1, at New York in the 90th minute when Luciano Emilio and Chris Pontius scored within 36 seconds to secure a 3-2 win over last season's MLS Cup runner-up, the New York Red Bulls. The win ended United's 11-game away winless streak in all competitions. VIDEO
