[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] A day after losing star Kenny Cooper, who signed with German second division club 1860 Munich, FC Dallas exploded for a 6-0 rout of the Kansas City Wizards that featured four goals by Jeff Cunningham and two by Brazilian David Ferreira. After the best of his four goals, Cunningham, who has scored seven goals in his last four games, ran to the stands to beat on a fan's drum.

JEFF CUNNINGHAM. His four goals gave him seven goals in his last four games and moved him into third place, past Jason Kreis, on the MLS career goals list. Cunningham has 112 career goals, behind only Jaime Moreno (128) and Ante Razov (115).

4. It took the Houston Dynamo only four minutes to score three goals -- the first by Brad Davis and the next two by Brian Ching -- but it would have to hang on to beat D.C. United, 4-3, after opening up a 4-1 lead.

CHAD MARSHALL. The 2008 MLS Defender of the Year celebrated his return to the Columbus Crew after almost a month away with the U.S. national team by scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 win at the Colorado Rapids that extended the Crew's winning streak to three games and kept it in first place in the Eastern Conference.

PATRICK NYARKO. The Ghanaian youngster could be the answer to the Chicago attack that could be without Brian McBride for the rest of the season. He scored on a header in the 76th minute to give the Fire a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake and help Chicago extend its unbeaten streak to five games.

Goal of the Week Nominees:



YURA MOVSISYAN. The Denmark-bound striker was lost to RSL at halftime of its game at Chicago with a strained rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

4. The shutout was the fourth straight of the season for Chicago, which got another strong game from the backline of Gonzalo Segares, Bakary Soumare, C.J. Brown and Brandon Prideaux in front of goalie Jon Busch.

OSVALDO ALONSO. The Cuban's own goal was the start of a long evening for Seattle in San Jose, where the Sounders fell, 4-0, for their first loss in seven games.

ANDRE LUIZ. The Seattle game marked the debut in midfield of the 34-year-old Brazilian, who played alongside recent signing, Salvadoran Ramon Sanchez. Andre Luiz most recently played for Jaguares in Mexico.

385. New England set a club record for the longest shutout streak and just a minute later the streak was snapped at 385 minutes when Dwayne De Rosario volleyed home a deflection for the game's first goal.

EDGARAS JANKAUSKAS. The Lithuanian striker scored his first goal for New England to give the Revs a 1-1 tie with visiting Toronto FC. He has been hampered by a hamstring injury and only played three MLS games since joining the Revs.
