Beckham comes through for Galaxy [VIDEO]

[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] David Beckham scored his second goal of the season and notched his third assist in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 2-0 win over Toronto FC. Houston and Kansas City pulled off exciting wins, but Seattle disappointed its loyal following once again.

DAVID BECKHAM. The league's highest paid player, by far, is starting to contribute to the Los Angeles rebound season. After missing the playoffs three seasons in a row (two with Beckham), it looks set to cruise into the postseason after a 2-0 win over Toronto FC. Beckham scored the first goal for the Galaxy and nicely helped set up the second, along with Landon Donovan, for Edson Buddle, whose return to fitness and form bodes well for Coach Bruce Arena's squad.



404. The Seattle Sounders have now gone more than six hours (404 minutes) without scoring a goal at home. On Saturday, they disappointed a crowd of 32,719 in a scoreless tie against Chiva USA, despite playing a man up for the last 29 minutes after the ejection of Marcelo Saragosa.

CONOR CASEY. The Colorado Rapids, in their bid for a playoff spot, have the luxury of playing the hapless San Jose Earthquakes (last place in the West) twice in one week. But in their first meeting, the Rapids could manage only a 1-1 tie, thanks to Casey's stoppage-time penalty kick. The goal extended Casey's lead among the league's leading scorers to 14 goals.

10,979. The turnout at Giants Stadium for the Red Bulls on Friday lowered their season average to 11,070, which means they're headed for their worst attendance average in club history, dating back to when the franchise was launched as the MetroStars in 1996. John Wolyniec's second-half goal equalized the Revs' go-ahead goal by Sainey Nyassi.

BRIAN CHING. The Houston forward scored in the 2nd minute against Real Salt Lake and teammate Geoff Cameron scored three minutes later in what was only the seventh time in league history that a team scored twice in the first five minutes of a game. Ching was ejected in the in the 82nd minute for serious foul play. By then, Houston had pulled off a 3-2 win, Brad Davis, who assisted on Houston's first two goals, having scored the gamewinner after Kyle Beckerman and Yura Movsisyan scored for Salt Lake.

JIMMY CONRAD. The Kansas City defender rebounded from miscues that led to both of FC Dallas' goals and scored the gamewinner of the Wizards' 3-2 win to keep his team with a shot at the playoffs. Conrad scored on a diving header after Dallas keeper Dario Salas slapped out a backward header from his defender George John. VIDEO

PETER LOWRY. The 23-year-old midfielder, in just his fifth start of the season, scored both of Chicago's goals in a 2-2 tie with defending champ Columbus, which got its late equalizer on a Guillermo Barros Schelotto penalty kick. Barros Schelotto also scored the first goal of the comeback, upping the 2008 league MVP's scoring total to 12 goals.
