9 The Kansas City Wizards held runaway Western Conference leader Chivas USA to a 1-1 tie Saturday at CommunityAmerica Ballpark despite finishing with just nine players after Josh Wolff (68th minute) and Argentine Santiago Hirsig were sent off. Wolff was ejected for  head-butting Mariano Trujillo, while Hirsig was handed his second yellow card for a reckless tackle on Sasha Victorine.

OSVALDO ALONSO. The Seattle Sounders' injury woes continued when the Cuban midfielder had to leave their 1-1 tie at Colorado with a strained right quadriceps he initially aggravated during pregame warmups.

AMADO GUEVARA. The Honduran international scored twice to give Toronto FC a 3-1 win over the New England Revolution -- its first ever over its Eastern Conference rival since joining MLS in 2007.

6 With the loss, the Revolution extended its winless streak to six games dating back to April 17.

Guevara's goal and other Goal of the Week candidates:



5 Chicago's 1-0 win over New York on Sunday at Giants Stadium was its fifth consecutive win over the Red Bulls.

JOHN BUSCH. The Chicago keeper was sensational, stopping 10 shots in the win that kept the Fire in first place in the Eastern Conference.

JOSH WICKS. Another strong performance in goal was turned in by Wicks, who had several big saves in D.C. United's 0-0 tie Real Salt Lake that extended streaks to seven games without a defeat and four win ties.

16,089. A crowd of 16,089 turned out at RFK Stadium for the first MLS-WPS doubleheader. D.C. United's game with RSL was preceded by a WPS game between the Washington Freedom and Sky Blue FC.
 
KEI KAMARA. After being called a "mental midget" by San Joe's Nick Garcia in the media in the days leading up to the match, Kamara came up big for Houston, scoring what proved to be the decisive goal in a 3-1 win over the Earthquakes in Houston.

6 Because of a plethora of ties, unbeaten streaks abound in MLS, but the Dynamo's six-game streak is actually worthy of note -- it includes fourth wins in its last five games.

16 Landon Donovan's goal for the Los Angeles Galaxy in its 1-1 tie with FC Dallas gave him 16 career goals against FCD, the most of any player. He broke a tie with Clint Mathis.
